       The RLC Ski Club Trip to

       Les Arc

       18 – 25 January 2020

       For more years than anyone can remember, members,
       family and friends of the ACC (now RLC) ski club flew off to
       somewhere sunny and snowy to enjoy a week on the slopes of
       Europe. January 2019 was no exception and as may be seen by
       the attached pictures, the snow was brilliant and the weather
       mostly sunny.
          The RLC Ski Club’s next trip will once again be to the
       French resort of Les Arcs, the second largest linked ski area
       in the world, suitable for all levels of skiers. Located in the
       Tarentaise valley high above Bourg Saint-Maurice, Les Arcs
       is part of the protected Vanoise National Park. The trip will
       take place between Saturday 18th and Saturday 25th January
       2020. Please contact club Chairman Nigel Shepherd for
       further details at
