I am born 10th of May 1971 - and first time I got a ski injury was this year in Chamonix Valley Blanche ! ( See at Top Stories - Danger, Crevasse ) .
What a chance ! Now our planned Chamonix trip becomes futile for now !
Any news on repairs? A colleague is off there this summer for some climbing. He’s hearing that one school of thought is that its easy to repair. Meanwhile there is a school of thought that is shaking its head, sucking air through its teeth and totting up the cost of a new cable.
No news yet. I was talking to a member of the Chamonix Gendarmerie yesterday who said it was probably going to take sometime, possibly July and that local guides were concerned about the impact it will have on their business.
