... caught a local train to Chamonix proper and checked back into the Grand Hotel des Alps, our original starting point, where we were repatriated with our luggage.

We rented skis from a little shop in the village, then drove to the gondola lift at the base of le Grand Bornand station. The gondola was fun – only Abby had done one before (last year when she was here with Eliette’s family). As we got further and further up the mountain, we were relieved to see more and more snow.
