Winter greetings from France
Two letters from France using the total of 5 stamps originally issued in one souvenir sheet on 2 February 2009. The sheet was dedicated to the World Alpine Skiing Championship held in Val d'Isere on 2-15/2/2009.
One of the stamps shows a group of relaxing skiers below the name Val d'Isere, the other four show skiers during competition in descente (downhill), super combine (super combined), slalom and slalom géant (giant slalom). Both covers are hand cancelled, one on 13/2/2009, the other on 24/2/2009, both in Lyon.
Thank you, Thomas!
