La Marmotte: June 25, 2023

No, not that one, this here:

The date for this most venerable of fondos has just been revealed and it is a little earlier than expected, at least by me – June 25, 2023. This is good news and bad news for me because I actually had a week-long tour scheduled to start that very weekend on Alpe d’Huez (and I hadn’t booked any hotels, so that’s definitely off the calendar now) – so that’s the bad news. The good news is that this event would be ideal training for me for Haute Route Alps 2 months later. I’ve done La Marmotte, but not the traditional route, so I might be persuaded to give it another go.

Anyone out there considering it?
