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.

... home and had another beautiful dinner of slow-cooked chicken pieces and langersteins (kind of like prawns) in a delicious herby sauce. We have written down a heap of recipes from Corinne to bring home, as all the food has been divine!
Still no snow when we went to bed and we were starting to get a bit worried that we wouldn't see fresh snow fall in the time that we are here. The temperature was dropping though, so everyone went to bed with their fingers and toes ...
