Val Thorens, Thursday

Next-to-last day. We went on a picnic in the slope that was arranged by the travel agency (Langley). Pretty good food - roast beef, ham and pasta salad with olives, bread and cheeses (of course).

Johan and Annica at the end of the 3 Valleys 2 lift.

The Cote Brune lift. This is the last lift you need to take if you're going back to Val Thorens from the other valleys - miss it, and you are officially Stuck In Menuires. I have raced to it so many times that I think it deserves a mention and a picture.

The ski went from the little hill in the top right, across the ski slope, and down the big hole to the left. (You can see the track it made.)
