Here's where you can get the whole scoop: http://alpinewhitewaterfrancaise.com/
I remember, when I went to France before, that I was pretty out of shape and more than a little bit overweight. Now I am considerably leaner, but I know that when I get to France, I will be relatively pudgy. People there are svelte. It's not just the models; the cultural standard is different. The first time it was a bit of a shock. Now I know to expect it. Or get a little extra lean before I go. Which is what I intend to do.
