... were ice caves. We thought we were going to naturally occurring ones, but no, they are actually drilled out each season. Artists sculpt the ice into tables, chairs, polar bears, stuff like that. We lost two people on the tour which the guide was quite upset about. He had mentioned it was a 200 euro taxi fare back from Chamonix to Geneva! But there were initially four people who were initially missing from our leaving point. As we ...
