Skiing in La Foux

The Observatory. An exposed peak in the southern Alps. Altitude 2600 metres. Windy and very cold in January.
The way up? an ancient cable car (due to be dismantled for scrap in spring 2011).
The way down? A steep ski trail or if you prefer, an even steeper ski trail.

The Observatory - 2600 m
The Mercantour range - southeastern Alps - France
