Great shadows following the lay of the land - I can see the path I would take to ski down those slopes. I think the level of detail in the figures is absolutely fine, as they are in the foreground compared with the trees, etc. You were right to include them, as I think it really benefits from their presence. Once again your snow colours are really very good, and the lake (which you paint so well as open water in the summer) is very well represented as a flat icy surface. Also I love the clear blue alpine sky. Altogether a well composed and very pleasing painting, bringing back many happy skiing memories! ****
