Photos from Chamonix

I have posted all of the photos from our trip to Chamonix and even have a video of Cullen snowboarding, including one face plant. Don’t let the photos fool you, the skiing was terrible. One day we got to one of the ski areas (there are about 5 or 6) and it was raining so hard and so windy at the top that the woman selling tickets told us that skiing that day was a bad idea. When it didn’t rain, we had either ice, really thick wet snow, or just hard crud. At least we had some great sun at times so we could see the Alps, which are certainly impressive.

The next ski trip will probably be in Austria or Switzerland and we will stay at someplace that allows us to ski-in and ski-out. In Chamonix you have to rely on the city bus or a taxi to get from town to the ski areas and back.

I also have short a video from inside the gondola as it starts to descend from the Aiguille Du Midi peak at Mont-Blanc, which is very is steep.
