Saint Gervais 2020

13th February 2020, 14 photos.

Not quite our usual full-on sunshine skiing but we made the best of it, skiing Saint Gervais, Les Houches and Les Contamines. We were at least rewarded with one awesome sunshine day at Les Contamines. Finally, we witnessed the polishing of Saint Gervais town and the invasion of an army of machine-gun toting Gendarmes for the imminent arrival of President Macron to the town.
