    A friend and I took our CRF's to the French Alps for a week. We know the area very well from numerous downhill mountain biking and snowboarding trips. We are very lucky in that we have friends with a place out there ( www.winterandsummer.com )

    Here are a few pics.

    Day 1, a few fairly easy wide forest service roads.

    Nobody could really tell me what was or wasn't definitely allowed. From our experience the wide forest/piste access roads are fine (we passed many workers etc and nobody said a word) but the narrow walkers trails are strictly a no go. We went in between summer and winter season, so once you get out of the valleys there is nobody around anyway.
