Snow fun in The Pyrenees

Got back safe and sound from a press trip to The Pyrenees. Visited two lovely resorts, Font-Romeu and Les Angles, right on the Spanish border. Actually one of my clues for the radio show this time was that this is an area where three languages are spoken. So, obviously Spanish and French, but hearing French people speaking Catalan was a real surprise for me.
Both resorts were very family friendly and specialised in activities for non skiers, so we learnt cross country skiing and snowshoeing. Had some fun climbing around an 'I Go Ape' style tree course and spent an afternoon in a naturally heated thermal spring.
