    Bonjour Anne-Françoise, La sortie de samedi dernier m’a entièrement ravi : excellente ambiance, baptême de l’air paisible, parcours de toute beauté sous l’œil attentif et encourageant de Peter, bref un grand moment de ski, en prime sous un ciel parfaitement dégagé ! Bravo pour l’organisation, en ce compris la navette de retour et la livraison sur place des packs de sécurité. Merci pour tout et….à la prochaine !!!
