Champery, let's ski to Switserland

"Les Portes du Soleil" is one of the largest skiing areas in the world, stretching out over the French-Swiss border. Our basecamp was in France: Les Gets and litteraly the other side of the enormous ski arena, so ... we did it and it was super. Especially our lunch in the Swiss valley near Champery at the feet of "La Mure", a very steep skiing sloop "The Wall". Okay, we didn;t ski down, but went up here by one of the many ski lifts.

Best skiing area in France AND Switserland

The urge to go skiing is something that I every winter again feel rising when Christmas is approaching. these years however, it's waiting until Ilja is old enough to start taking lessons. My first skiing years were from 1993 until 1998 of which the wintersport at "Les Portes du Soleil" (the gates of the sun) was the last. Hopefully, Ilja will inherit my "snow fever" so we can enjoy the fun together soon.
