Chamonix Snow Reports and Skiing Conditions

Sunset on the edge of the world last weekend
So, the winter season 2013-14 has ended, and we had a great one in Chamonix. Thanks to the Chamonix valley and the Mont Blanc for delivering plenty of fresh snow from Christmas until March, and lots of sunshine for the rest of it, to balance it out.
Today was a disappointing powder day that turned into a great sunny spring skiing day, as the sun burned off the sea of cloud and warmed the snow at the Grands Montets, above the Chamonix valley.
Yesterday's fruitful powder hunt
This is a weekend of contrasting weather in Chamonix and the Mont Blanc massive. Yesterday was a beautiful sunny day, and today we have steady rain in town, with continuous snowfall in the mountains above 1700m.
Today was a great day to be out on the ski hill at Chamonix, as the sun was out until mid afternoon, and the spring snow was pretty skiable.
Grands Montets
There is some active weather in Chamonix today, breaking the spring cycle slightly. It is raining a bit in town, with light snow showers up on the mountain slopes. The Grands Montets is still open, with almost all of its lift accessed terrain available above 1900m. Happy Easter!
The sunshine continues, with spring snow at the Grands Montets, Les Houches, and the Vallee Blanche. Photos from today, an overview of Chamonix from the Aiguille du Midi:
