The story behind "Skiing on the Bosson glacier, Chamonix Mont Blanc"

The little village of Chamonix was advised to change its name into Chamonix Mont Blanc as many tourist came to see the highest mountain of the Alps.

The old normal route is hardly used anymore except in spring, when it can be skied. Close to the valley, it feels like you are in a different world here. Shot with regular wide angle, no fisheye even though it might appear so, with Canon Eos 3 on B&W slide film, likely in 2003; scanned later.
