Chamonix Dump Alert: 10th January 2017

It's finally happening and in a big way.. the snow clouds have returned and Chamonix is at the start of an epic dump of snow.

Already in the centre of Chamonix we've got a good 5cm on the ground and the flakes that are falling are getting bigger and bigger. 

There's better news yet though, the snow forecasts have been updated and this one from Snow-Forecast (at 2440m) is showing snow all the way through to the weekend.

With heavy, fresh snow fall comes a fresh danger of avalanches. You can find the latest bulletin from France Meteo here and at all the lift stations. Read more about safety in the mountains or talk to one of the mountain guides for advice if you're considering any off piste skiing.

Stay safe out there!
