Val d'Isère 6 April 2020

Here’s Jean-Pierre Bazile, victor of yeterday’s Classique du Nial slalom, raced every April on wooden skis and leather boots.

But how were they permitted to race, when even walking up the slopes is banned?

And we’re only allowed out for an hour…

And gatherings of more than two people are banned?

First, because Jean-Pierre is from an old Val d’Isère family…

Secondly, because he was the only competitor…

And thirdly because he cheated slightly, and was standing on the roof of our Chalet les Gnellets!
