Chamonix Snow Report & Forecast

Discover the latest Chamonix snow conditions

Ollie Bush, Chamonix Reporter | Published

Sunny skiing has been the norm in the Chamonix Valley once more this week, with a short break provided by a flurry of snow earlier in the week.

However, things are changing as a new dump of snow is forecast tonight and over the weekend, with around 15-20cm expected to fall at 2000m. After that, the sun will shine again.

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.

Current snow depths stand at around 2m at the top of the Aiguille du Midi and 130cm at mid-mountain level, in Grands Montets and Brévent. The sun will shine today and on Sunday and Monday, with perhaps a light dusting of snow on Tuesday and clouds in the sky for the rest of the week.
