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.

The plan was to meet Ali, Julie and Andy at Le Chalet des Neiges, which we did but only after taking a wrong turn having navigated faultlessly all day.
