MONT BLANC HIGHLIGHTS
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
Encircled by mountains and blue sky.
What did you think of your group leader?
Simon did an excellent job finding alternative routes as our end of May departure (first of season) was thwarted by too much snow on the routes meaning we were unable to do much of the stated itinerary. But its a credit to Simon that we still managed to get out every day, enjoy challenging walks, beautiful views and overally a great experience of the Mont Blanc region.
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
The trip notes are spot on - you need to take the full range of gear and you will wear it (especially for the first departure) - waterproofs, gloves, woolly hats, sun hats & sunglasses all in one day!
Is there anything else you would like to add?
Just go with it! The challenge of the fantastic amount of snow for June (they re-opened Verbier the weekend we came home!) provided us with the unexpected opportunity of snow shoeing for a day - great fun! Jayne and John do a brilliant job at Chalet Chocolate - creating a really warm and friendly environment where nothing is too much trouble and the food is absolutely fantastic, with every taste catered for and no waistlines spared!
