Monday 5th Jan - we chose to have a day trip to this delightful little town in northen Italy hoping to find some snow to play in, and it was only about 2 hours by train. Aosta is a bilingual town in the Alps close to the entrance of the Mont Blanc tunnel, the major transport link of Italy to northern Europe. It has many very old roman ruins, but we didn't see any of the town! While researching the internet (what would we do without it) I discovered a cable ...
Changeover day Swiss style went off without any major hitches. The trains were once again ruthlessly efficient creating a couple of nerves for us trying to lug our inordinate amount of gear between platforms with minutes between trains, but as expected we arrived in Verbier exactly 2hrs and 48mins after leaving Zermatt.

camp where we washed away our aches and pains with a few cold ones and a Swiss “Boerie”
... balconies, beautiful wildflowers & easy walking wth wondeful views of the snow mountains. Refuge Bethone was crowded, but some of us had a good room with our own bunk & a bathroom!!! Dinner was very communal, lots of pasta, bread & wine. Julie & I had to stop twice on the way back from the dinner hut to our hut. A very social night ...
