Although it might be spotting with rain in town right now, the forecast is promising a few cm of snow tonight at around 2500m, with more overnight Saturday, Sunday and then maybe up to 30cm through until Wednesday.
Higher up at the top of Grands Montets (3275m), and the Aiguille du Midi (3842m) / Valley Blanche there looks like there's going to be a fair old dump between Monday & Wednesday, maybe 50-60cm? The 12 day forecast is showing snow next Friday, Tuesday & Wednesday aswell.. what the chuff?!?
Piste skiing options are limited to just Les Houches for this weekend (lifts close on the 21st) and Grands Montets at the moment, but the Midi lift is still running for access to the Valley Blanche and other off piste routes, and there's always the option of ski touring higher up. Have a look at our mountain huts section to see options of where to stay on a tour.
If you fancy heading over to Italy, Courmayeur resort is open until the 21st April. From now until 4th May, Grands Montets will remain open - first lifts at 08:30. Work is going to start after this to build the new Plan Joran chair lift - read more about Chamonix ski lift investment plans here.

A weekend of girly stuff on the mountain
Ellie Mahoney | Chamonix Editor | published: 14th April 2014
I've gotten into bad habits recently, getting up late and hitting the mountain after midday at the weekends.. which is great timing for the bullet-proof pistes to have softened off a bit and for the sun to hopefully have hit all my favourite deck/chair coffee spots.. more »
