... cable cars are now closed for the summer season there is a limited
number of feasible hikes that don’t involve a huge climb from the village. The
tourist information centre recommends a hike up to 2,000 metres to Petit

It took us an hour to get through to the peage. It would not accept my token so the Amex took the hit of €41 one way. BTW the best thing I did before I left the UK was to buy a French ...
