Historical Snow in Chamonix

Chamonix snow report - 2004-2014 (10 season average)

Situated in the Chamonix Valley, Chamonix (as well as all other ski resorts in the Chamonix Valley area) has always benefited from an amazing snow record thanks to the microclimate and the proximity of the Mont-Blanc making one of the most snow-sur resort in France.
Snow cover is pretty much guaranteed from early-December until late April.
