Great ski conditions at the Grands Montets for the last few days of the Chamonix winter ski season. Grands Montets closed tomorrow and Friday, but open for the weekend...

After a wet weekend, we had some great powder in the high mountain zone when the sun came out on Monday, and today we had spring snow conditions in the mid mountain at Grands Montets, and winter snow in the high alpine. It is t-shirt weather in the valley bottom, while still being skiable up high - a great combination.

The Grands Montets will be closed for 2 days before re-opening for this weekend to see out the end of this ski season. The weather looks to be unstable tomorrow and Friday, probably with more fresh snow in the mountains, so the closing weekend looks like it might have powder, and then there is the "Freeride Days" closing party on Sunday.

The Aiguille du Midi will stay open for the whole spring, and the Vallée Blanche is just about skiable still (with a guide, as there are some gnarly crevasses opening up around the Salle-a-Manger).

We have had a great winter this year, with lots of snow, and somehow also lots of sunshine! There has been some good powder days, and some awesome spring skiing conditions too. Enjoy the last 2 days of lift accessed skiing this weekend - there is still plenty of snow...
