Latest Chamonix Snow Report
Welcome to the Chamonix All Year Snow Report for Friday March 16th.
After a fantastic week of all kinds of weather we are again looking forward to new snowfall! The snow measure at La Flégère (which had fallen below 2m in warmer weather of late), is now inching toward 3m once more and will likely get there by next week. See the build up on the roof of this mazot at La Trappe:
Chamonix weather experts say:
An altitude cold minimum drifting towards the western part of the Bay of Biscaye will probably pass over our Region eastward bound, causing gloomy and cold condition with light snowfall on Saturday and most likely on Sunday as well.
High winds yesterday of over 80km per hour, combined with the affects of the aforementioned warm temperatures (Wednesday), followed again by more snow will effect avalanche risk. Take the necessary precautions when heading off-piste such as hiring safety equipment (and undergoing training) or employing a local guide.
