His take on the day (and her photos):
There is normally a very, very long cable car ride from here back to Italy, but now it is closed for maintenance. We rode up to the Aiguille du Midi peak and it lightly snowed. I again suffered from being at this altitude and was a bit "off" for the remainder of the day. This was unfortunate as we were yet to drive to L'Alpe d"Huez.

If I have failed to mention how wonderfully nice my host
parents are, then I have failed at relaying my sincerest gratitude for them!
Instead of just leaving me to my own means of figuring out how to ski, they
took me out in the afternoon to give me my first lessons. We practiced on a
