Let it snow, Let it snow, Let it snow!!
I am excited to say that when I look out the window right now, all I see are perfect chalet roof tops covered in beautiful white snow. I can not say the whole season so far has been like this, but better late than never right? What I myself know, is that this year is not over yet. And if you look at the snowfall forecast, It looks like it is just getting started! There are still plenty of exciting things to enjoy this winter in Champéry and Grimentz, and here are some of them for this March:
