    The Blood Wagon!

    by freya_heaven Updated May 3, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Winter sports have their fair share of risks, from just taking a tumble & landing badly to an avalanche. If you are planning to go off piste always listen to the advice given in the valley before setting off, or even better take a local guide with you.

    The stretcher which brings injured people down the mountains are also known as the "blood wagon". My aunt who is a ski instructor & a fantastic skier escaped a ride in a blood wagon for over 30 years until recently, she said it was terrifying they skied down the mountain so fast with her!!

    Dizzying Heights!

    by freya_heaven Written May 2, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    As beautiful as the Ardeche Gorge is, there is one definate down side if you are not a lover of heights like me. The road hugs (only just!!) the cliff side as it snakes though the Gorges of the Ardeche. In places I have to admit I found it terrifying we seemed so close to the edge.

    Enlarge the photo to see just how high the gorge road gets!
