Skiing in Chamonix, France - 15th March 1999

One of Sean's friends is working as a Chalet Girl over in Chamonix, and so it seems like a good idea to get a cheapo EasyJey flight over and scope it all out. It's Nosher's first-ever time skiing, and so there's a bit of an acclimatisation phase on the baby slopes, under Sean's tutelage. Once that's done, we're off to the "proper" bit, with red, blue and black runs and everything (well, maybe only red and blue). Nosher had always been a bit wary of skiing, on account of the full-gear poseur tits with Oakley shades and all that, but it turns out to be a most pleasant experience - if nothing else for the snow and the stunning scenery
