Jackson Lebsack completed Ski.com’s Epic Dream Job Europe leg in Courchevel, France. He was able to cram in the experience of a lifetime by kicking it off with a helicopter tour, paragliding over the French Alps and skiing a few runs—all before lunch on the first day. His last day in Courchevel consisted of hiking beautiful ridgelines and skiing untracked powder, followed by a gourmet meat and cheese lunch in the backcountry before closing out the Europe portion of the journey in perfect style: at the famed après-ski hotspot Folie Douce in Meribel.

Here are some highlights from Courchevel, according to Jackson
