We Have Snow. [At last]
The snow has at last arrived. We had about 20 cm of fresh in the garden. It has been raining all week and snowing down to about 2000 meters.
None of the lifts are open for skiing as yet. Les Grands Montets have some "technical problems" which is nothing new. They decided in October that they better change the cable car cabin. The new one was ordered and would have been delivered but the lorry driver went under a bridge that was too low and sliced the top off the new cabin. The year before they did exactly the same thing with the new cable for the Aiguille du Midi and got that stuck.
