Today we arrived in Châtel. As far as I know this is a quite famous place for skiing. However right now in the summer it is like a ghost village… almost no one is on the road and most of the hotels are closed. After one hour we found a supermarket. The weather forecast for tomorrow does not look very promising-thunderstorms and rain, rain, rain… To have some flexibility we decided to stay in the valley this time. We have a nice accommodation for this night which is a big contrast to Refuge de Bise yesterday 🙂 Talking with French people is mostly fun and it works somehow… but still it is difficult sometimes. Hopefully the weather will get better soon.
