Chamonix Snow Report & Forecast

Discover the latest Chamonix snow conditions

Author Caro Blackwell, Ski Editor Published

So that’s it for this winter in Chamonix. It’s been a strange season, mainly enjoyed in two halves! After an early snow dump and optimistic signs of a good winter ahead, we suffered a real lack of snow at Christmas and New Year on the lower slopes. Then finally mid January we were rewarded for our patience with colder temperatures and a good dump of snow to get the season re-started and just in time for the February half terms.  We then enjoyed a sunny dry spell but by mid-February we were begging for more snow, even with our snow dances, the snow eluded us. Finally early March brought us more much needed snow and spring skiing was on! Although we suffered on the lower slopes at times. End of March and throughout April we were delivered more snow, in fact some big dumps of snow which has seen us through to the end of our season in style! An enormous shout out to those magnificent pisteurs who kept our resort going throughout, even at times when it seemed incredibly difficult on the low slopes. We’ll be back next winter with our weekly snow reports, until then, enjoy a break before summer in Chamonix opens up.

For the last few days of the season on Les Grand Montets, which closes on 1st May, enjoy some good skiing. Llight snow is forecast on Friday over about 3000 metres but with fresh westerly winds.  Saturday winds will be decreasing and moderate snow is forecast in the evening and through Sunday with the freezing level down to around 2300 metres.

Les Houches closed on 10th April, La Flegere, Le Tour and Vallorcine closed on the 16th April. Le Brevent closed on the 23rd April. Les Grands Montets will remain open until Monday 1st May 2023.
