Cham, Genève et Tignes turns August, FR - 11-13 août 2011

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I traded a few emails with Bob last summer regarding summer skiing option in the Alps as we were spending our family vacation in France. I knew a few of them, although I never skied in the Alps in summer.
 
First off was a place that wasn't too far from my in-laws: Tignes. This was a 2-day weekend which got extended into a 3-day for a few August turns. My August turns were planed later in the month, however we decided to spend a weekend seeing Chamonix and Geneva. The Tignes/Val d'Isère part was added at the last minute. I have a few more Alps summer liftserved TR lined up from last summer, but not sure when I'll be done posting them. :(
 
I just got back from our family vacation this week, I wanted to post this TR earlier in the summer, but as life is, I didn't find the time to actually get them posted. Although I saw some snow during this year vacation (in a different part of the World as last year), I managed to actually ski on some of it last year. 
 
These TRs have been written last summer. A three-day weekend which included 3 hours of skiing. The whole TR is in Ski Mad World blog. Here is a one picture a day sample of the weekend. I wasn't able to quickly upload the pics here, I'll try later,

Not a problem, I just wasn't able to go it quickly. I didn't have much time to figure out the coding for Epic (I know it probably simple) in order to post them up, but I didn't have the time today. Coding for linking to pics is different on FTO or TGR and trying to minimize the time I spent online and get those damn old TRs up before I received another email from Tony C. :)

 

Hoping to get the next TR from last summer in the Alps before I leave on my next trip for August and September turns early next week. The text has been written for a while and I have narrowed down the number of pics at 60 pics. Needless to say, I have more work to do.
