/ Ski trip tomorrow
Friendly clean place, may be fully booked though due to time of year
Hotel Richmonde in Chamonix. Not the cheapest but if you ask for an alpiniste room (top floor, old servant quarters) it will be cheaper.
Just a great place to stay - genuine family run place (the tweed-suited grandfather is usually found hovering around reception, old fashioned and charming, plaque in the garden says Mallory lived there foir a time, as I recall.
