Unfortunately the Ultra TMB Marathon (168km 10000m ascent and descent 22hrs) was canceled due to the snow so we didn't see these mad bastards speed past us.
Avery pleasant day even though it was raining. Initially we walked along a valley with loads of little Heidi holiday houses with neatly staked fire wood outside. Then after lunch there was the mandatory steep ascent through woodlands with little wooden carvings (mainly if mushrooms) dotted along the way. Luckily it was only about 500m. so relatively easy.
Champex is a little ski resort village with a lake with a few people fly fishing for trout. Quite successfully too. Checked into the Gite and called it a day
