    Valentine’s day may have passed but don’t worry, you can still ignite the flame in the Alps. On the 24th February and the 2nd March head down to the bottom of the Chavannes next to apres bar, where it will be heating up for the descente aux flambeaux caritative. A group of ESF hotties and their students will be descending down the slopes in a procession of flames.
