Tour de France Grand Massif July 2006

As an enthusiast in watching the Tour de France we visited Les Carroz for a summer holiday in July 2006. Did the telecabine to the top of Flaine to discover snow still at the top.


A walk down to the village at 1600m with a picnic half way down was a fantastic way to spend a day. The scenery was spectacular with snow covered mountains and wild flowers.

The circus came to town in Les Carroz but we did not see Papa Lazaroux!
