Another leisurely start today as we headed for the Vallee Blanche. For those not in possession of a Chamonix season pass its a £50.00 round trip; £50.00 to get scared witless on the ‘Midi’ cable-car contemplating your chances of survival should the cable snap and then, at the end of the day, you have to climb a million stairs to take a poxy little cabin back to the Montenvers train in which you’re packed like sardines for the journey back down – the skiing bit in between is just fantastic though…….
