In the Wild: FITS Ambassador Amie Engerbretson Conquers the Alps
The Val d'Isere
region provides skiing with versatility. Located in southeastern France, you can explore all that the alpine terrain has to offer. FITS Ambassador, Amie Engerbretson, highlights her time on the mountain.
The best part about Val d'Isere is that the views of the Alps are always amazing. Looking for a fast run? Amie suggests the backcountry, “Look at a line from afar and then navigate your way through the rocks and features.” But make sure you don’t stick to just one run, “Ski the groomers and with a short hike you’re going down steep backcountry lines.” Check the map
beforehand and plan your route.
After a lap on a peak, take a moment to put your feet up and enjoy some of the French meats, cheeses and fresh baguette.
You can’t leave the Alps without checking out the view from above, Our last day we went tandem paragliding. It felt like floating through a dream.
À bientôt France!
