... first snowman, but not so sure about how cold the snow was! Stew and I took advantage of Marg & Bruce being around to watch the kids and in the late afternoon we helped boost Chamonix's economy (not that they need it!).

The steps were built on top of the ice and rock and were quite wobbly at times. Heading down, we could see the marks above us on the rocks showing the height of the glacier in previous years. As ...
