Cross-country skiing - Annecy, France

On the Glières plateau, meet Florian for a cross-country skiing trip. How to do it when you are in a wheelchair? The machine designed by Tessier for people with reduced mobility is very recent and totally innovative. You sit in an alpine ski shell attached to two cross-country skis and off you go! A few pushes on the poles and you pick up speed. On the descents you grab the brakes to avoid falling! Florian adapts to your level and if you have the strength, it climbs a little, he will take you to the less frequented places of the plateau!
