‘Faces’ is a portrait series which seeks to get under the skin of the characters who live in some of your favourite French ski resorts. From the pro snowboarder who runs a craft brewery at altitude in Valloire using water from the glaciers, to the architect who designs buildings inspired by Pyrenean mountains. And from the lift operator in Les Gets, who promises a slice of authenticity and nostalgia each time you ride her poma lift, to the inventor from La Plagne who has revolutionised Paralympic skiing.
These are the untold stories of the people you walk past every day on your ski or snowboard holiday. Unique encounters with ordinary people living in an extraordinary environment.
These are the many different faces of the French mountains, who owe their passions and way of life to the rugged landscapes and stunning snowy peaks they’re lucky enough to call home.
