Went to Chamonix for the first time a few weeks back and loved every minute of it. It was the first time in a while my heart rate got truly elevated for snowboarding on lift-accessed terrain. Steep & challenging sums it up. Chamonix is a lovely town with easy access to a multitude of terrain some of which is easy and some of which will get you killed if you are not careful. I actually took less photos than normal as we skiied our brains out all week.

The view from our Airbnb was pretty ok. [Fuji X-T1]

Exploring around Chamonix offered some fun views. [iPhone X]

Classic view. [Fuji X100T]

Made friends with the bartender over our shared passion for Fuji cameras. My wife called it "the international language of expensive cameras" that got us a couple of free rounds. So bummed he wasn't in focus since I was still getting used to the X100T.

Then it was off to Amsterdam to relax for a few days before heading home.

I never tire of the view from our favorite pub. [X100T]

Goodbye for now Amsterdam. My company's newest bird which I hope to be at the controls of down the road. [X100T]
