Discover the latest Chamonix snow conditions

Ollie Bush, Chamonix Reporter | Published

Chamonix's been hit by a couple of snowstorms this week. However, these have also come with high winds and even some rain down in the valley.

We're going to see sunny days this weekend with more snow early next week and every other day after that, interspersed with days when the sun will shine.

Check out Ollie's Instagram page, Chamonix.jpeg, with daily pictures and videos of Chamonix and his favourite rental shop in town, Chamonix Ski, where he gets his board serviced after a day on the slopes filming his snow reports.

Chamonix Dump Alert - 5th February 2020

After a couple of days of unseasonably warm temperatures, the snow started falling in the Chamonix Valley on Tuesday at around noon.

What began as light snow, drifting because of the wind, became heavier as the evening came and it continued dumping it down throughout the night. There are now around 15cm of fresh snow at the bottom of the valley and 28cm at Grands Montets mid-station, in Lognan. On the Aiguille du Midi, at 3840m, the layer of fresh snow has reached almost 40cm.

The forecast is suggesting that it will be sunny in the foreseeable future, with low temperatures and perhaps some more snow coming on Sunday so these are set to be some of the best skiing days of the season so far.
