What is more popular among french teens, downhill skiing or cross country
?
What do young people do in the afternoon of L’Aid el-Fitr?

I have a number of good friends, and acquaintances, in the southeast of France (in and around Grenoble), and they all seem to be strongly preferable to downhill skiing. When I was in high school, a friend of mine went to visit a mutual friend of ours in France during the winter, and he went downhill skiing. From what I observed during the time I’ve spent in the region, downhill skiing is very popular, as there are many mountains, and Switzerland is very close by.

However, I’m sure cross country is more popular in flatter areas, like Limousin, than it is in the Rhone Alps.

As to what young people do on Eid Al-Fitr, I don’t know, as I do not know any French Muslims.
