Last winter most ski resorts switched into cross-country ski areas. Some resorts, such as La Clusaz, had also set up numerous slopes, which were very busy from january.
It is on the resort of Semnoz, close to Annecy, that appeared, out of the fog, the kite sail of this skier. The ridge is indeed the favorite terrain for many speed-skiers throughout the winter. What is sometimes already astonishing when the weather is nice, was even more so in this thick fog which will have stagnated on the mountain, all the morning, at least.
There are the skiers, exclusively, of the sun and chalet terraces and there are the others. Others appreciate nature in all weathers and don't mind walking or riding in the rain. Nothing stops them!
