Day 5 A visit to the Musee Alpin, Chamonix

Musee Alpin, Chamonix

Today the weather wasn’t great for me. Visibilty looked bad so I decided not to go skiing. Instead, I went to visit the Alpine Museum in Chamonix town.  The museum is in a beautiful palace like building.  It displays the history of the valley including print making, alpinism, skiing and tourism.

Print making and cartography

I particularly enjoyed learning about printmaking and why it was useful in the 18th century. Printmaking made reproduction possible. It appealed and was accessible to the masses. Tourists who started to arrive en masse to Chamonix during the golden age of alpinism created demand for souvenirs that they could take home. These prints were mainly made by engraving on metal plates. Cartography and landscape prints were popular.
As techniques improved, artists were able to become more creative with their designs.
Printmaking is a skill I really want to explore. I love the retro stylised Chamonix posters. They capture the glamourous golden age of skiing.

Oakely goggles and wooly headband

I love to travel and draw. Today’s sketch of the day in my moleskine art journal: My Oakley goggles and wooly headband. Essential ski accessories for a gloomy day in the mountains. Even if the weather’s bad, it just means less skiing, more drawing and possibly eating. I am in France after all 🙂

Day 4 Mer de Glace, Montenvers, Chamomix, France

Montenvers, la mer de glace

La mer de glace (sea of ice) is France’s largest glacier measuring 7km in length and 200m in depth.
Our journey starts in Chamonix town where we took a 20 mins train ride up to Montenvers Alt 1913m. Then it’s a 2 min cable car ride down to a platform where we have to walk 420 steps down into an ice grotto. It’s not a long tour. The ice grotto is about a 50m loop. It’s quite spectacular to walk through the glacier. I thought people used to live in there but my brother just laughed at me. I failed to read the info. Lol
Back at the top, if the weather is good there are great views but it was snowing. The whole trip took us 2h 30 and it was free with our ski pass.
