Spoke to the lovely Steph at Planet Subzero about getting somewhere sorted to live in Chamonix. Lo and behold, am all set up! Perfect.
Everything's coming together nicely and picking up pace at a good rate with more ideas for work coming into the pipeline and being discussed. Will book flight this week and start dusting off my thermal thong and the rest of the boarding gear.
For those who aren't sure where Chamonix is, here's a link to the French Google maps listing.
