For a town that relies on snow for a major part of its revenu Chamonix was pretty un-prepaired for the mega 'dump' it got on new year's eve! The tunnel to Italy was closed, the road to Chamonix via the lake was closed, the pass to Switzerland was closed and the highway, well, imagine Bambi learning to walk on a frozen lake, that's how people were driving!!!
Despite all this white stuff we managed to get out and spent the evening 'roughing-it' in some friends new, but not finished, chalet. Oysters, Cheese, Champagne and Fireworks untill 1am!!!
Today Richard treated us to lunch in town before he scooted off to work and we had fun making snow creatures!
