What do Nordic Directors do in the summer?

This summer I visited several ski areas near Grenoble, France. There wasn’t much snow left, but it was fun to drive and hike in the mountains. It was cool to play in the town and mountains that hosted the 1968 Olympics. One day we drove into the mountains and visited the town/village that hosted the Olympic Nordic events.
