Winter's here

Winter arrived with a vengeance this week in the Chamonix valley with over 1 meter of snow falling in 5 days. A bit of a shock to the system as beforehand we had had very little to speak of in the valley bottom and autumn seemed to go on forever!

After 8 months snow free in the valley bottom it takes a little time to get re-accustomed to living with snow and the cold temperatures. Snow clearing, de-icing, togging up, the on & off of snow chains & of course driving at slower speeds.

It looks like being a great season.... our first snowshoeing & skiing trips are in the bag 3 weeks before the official opening of the resort.
