Chamonix Snow Reports and Skiing Conditions

40-50cm of new heavy snow!
We had 50cm of fresh snow overnight at 2000m, and it is snowing all day above Chamonix! That means that it is a very complicated day, though, with not much ski terrain open, and lots of wind in the mountains.
Today was a gloomy day in Chamonix, and also at most of the ski areas, but in the high mountain the sun was shining bright on a bit of freshly fallen snow above the ocean of cloud!
The Pierre-a-ric provided some good mixed icy and soft shredding
After a cloudy weekend, with some snow in the mountains and rain showers in town, today was gloriously sunny and warm in the direct sunshine, but the air up at Grands Montets stayed pretty cold for most of the day.
Test your slalom skills at Le Tour
Today started off with a thick layer of high cloud, but the sun started to burn through it, and we ended up with a nice hazy morning, warm in the sun, with some perfect mid morning soft corn snow on the run down from Le Tour mid station to the village.
Great visibility in the Courmayeur forest
Its been windy around Chamonix the last couple of days, and I thought it was time that I took a trip to the Italian side of Mt Blanc, Courmayeur, with my Mt-Blanc-Unlimited skipass, for some great espresso coffee and grappa!
The sun is still with us, and the temperature has stayed cool around Chamonix for the whole week, so we still have plenty of snow. The sunshine will have some clouds to compete with this weekend, though, with maybe some light snow showers.
