Heavy snowfall over the weekend may have sent Parisian drivers crazy, but it made snow sports enthusiasts ecstatic. Dozens of them headed to the Buttes Chaumont park, with their skis and snowboards.

 

The Buttes Chaumont park, located in northern Paris, is one of the capital’s biggest parks. It’s also one of the hilliest, with slopes more than 30 metres long.
