I had been eager to ski in Europe for quite awhile and finally got the opportunity to do so last month. My extended team at Google decided to organize an "unofficial" work trip in late January. We rented a private chalet and spent 4 days in Morzine Avoriaz in the French Alps.
What's so awesome about skiing in the Alps is that you can start your morning on the slopes in one country and spend the afternoon in another country. We zigzagged between the Swiss and French side of the mountains, quickly losing track of what country we were in at any given time. If you plan on visiting, just make sure to always get lunch on the French side. Everything in Switzerland is ridiculously expensive. Anyone want a hamburger for 20 CHF?
I'm not even going to try and compare the slopes in Europe to their North American counterparts. The experiences are entirely different but both completely worthwhile. Check out some photos from the trip below. I've also included an awesome video created by fellow Googler, Charly Sutton. Enjoy!
