News From Around the Ski World 

Welove2ski Editor Nicola was skiing in the Grand Massif today, starting in the charming and great-value resort of Les Carroz (1100m – 2120m) and skiing her way over to the Flaine summit at 2500m. She found some lovely fresh north-facing turns off the Lindars Nord chairlift, while things were getting a little slushy on the south side and lower down.
