Whats hot, whats not this week in the Chamonix Valley

What's hot: lots of interest in the Walkers Haute Route trek from Chamonix to Zermatt. 190 kms, 9,000 mtrs of height gain, 14 high mountain cols, 2 countries. This is the ultimate tough long distance trek and is fast becoming as popular than it's nearby rival the Tour du Mont Blanc.

What's not: Chamonix has see its lowest winter temperatures for many years. Dropping to a cool -23 and staying at a constant -15 for the past 10 days. It's played havoc with car drivers with the wrong type of fuel that will not cope with such low temperatures.
