April 1st and the cloud is down to the ground
A well deserved lie in and a little local wandering as didn’t fancy skiing in zero vis.
Pretty incredible it’s April and there is this much snow still at Chamonix town level. The crocuses are doing a fine job of popping out mind you.
The Church in Les Praz and the Dru are looking mighty fine as ever.
And the dodgy old Flegere cable car which is gracing these pictures has been replaced this season (2020) am writing this on March 30th 2020 with a completely new system much like the Plan Joran at the GM. No more crazy queues to get up to the slopes.
I’ll take a few snaps of it’s deserted glory in my next 15mins outing in COVID-19 locked down France and post here. A monster of a building and I can’t quite fathom how I’ve not been up to Flegere or Brevent this season.
The weather is looking much better tomorrow so GM here we come.
