Vue-des-Alpes - Tête-de-Ran

"The sun is setting on the horizon, causing the mercury to drop below zero as it disappears from view. Our little group speedily don their snowshoes, tuck their collars up over their chins, pull their caps down over their ears and light the torches. Ahead of us, a stretch of fresh snow awaits our footprints. Our snowshoes crunch along and our bodies warm up as the moon rises in the sky. After a few kilometres, one of us brings out a thermos of "vin chaud". The perfect moment to pause awhile to admire the vast star-spangled heavens. It is only the thought of tasting a fondue that is strong enough to tear us away from this idyllic scene."
