High up in the French Alps, just a few kilometres from the Italian border, winter is taking grip. Tourists glide down the slopes, while locals hunker down in their remote hamlets for the long and cold months to come. Those who choose to live here love these mountains despite the icy winters and relative isolation. We get a glimpse of life for them in this snowy landscape.
