If you looked up you might have spotted some superheroes practicing their aerial manoeuvres in Les Arcs/Peisey-Vallandry this weekend.
The colourful gang were taking part in the annual Winter Festislack event – a slacklining competition that involves participants walking tightropes sometimes dozens of feet above the ground – and this year the theme was Superheroes.
