60’s Style…mais pas le Français

One of the benefits of the Serre Chevalier Season Pass is you get a total of 15 days (!) of skiing in all most of the other local stations (with the gaping omission of La Grave) so today we had a family day out at Puy-Saint-Vincent. You have to drive about a 30min from Briancon to get to the […]
