No, but when I was 19 during my gap year in France I was stupid enough to take part in one of these...

If it weren't for the houses at the bottom it could well be the best snow sledding hill in the country. :D Pete :cheers:

Didn't take part, but as it's under an hours drive from our place, did enjoy a pint or two of cider watching. A few broken legs, dislocated shoulders etc...... absolute muppets - my nephew included (broken arm)!
