Didier Moranval - Southern Alps - Serre-Chevalier, Montgenèvre, Puy Saint Vincent, Vars Risoul, La Grave, La Meije

Didier Moranval
I am lucky to be surrounded by the most beautiful ski resorts in the Southern Alps. Serre-Chevalier, Montgenèvre, Puy Saint Vincent, Vars Risoul, and of course the mecca of freeride skiing - La Grave La Meije. The mountains here are a well kept secret preserving their natural beauty and somehow escaping mass tourism. The larch trees which cover these mountains have the particularity of “blushing” in Autumn for a spectacular display. Briançon, the highest city in Europe at 1326 m, is a city of 15,000 inhabitants with a flourishing commercial centre, innovative companies and optical fiber coming soon. This stunning UNESCO World Heritage Site is a pleasure to explore with its gargoyles, fortifications, and ramparts.
