Heading to the Powder in Val d'Isere
This picture was taken high up on the Glacier du Pisaillas in Val d'Isere.
Located nearby is the Col de l'Iseran. The Tour de France cycle race has been known to pass over this col during summer months, this gives you a real sense of perspective.
Here Skiers are heading to the slopes bright and early for first fresh tracks.
Slalom Course Inspection
Skier's inspecting a race course prior to racing through this slalom run in Val d'Isere.
Each Skier is soaking up every snippet of feedback they possibly can, the snow conditions, the undulations, the route, storing it mentally to perform on autopilot later. Programming the subconscious.
If you ever get the chance to stop by and watch a ski race, do so, you'll learn a lot.
