Historical Snow in Chamonix

Chamonix Snow Report – 2013-2018 (5 season average)

Chamonix and more generally the Chamonix Valley has always benefited from a superb snow record thanks to the microclimate resulting from the very close proximity of Mont Blanc. Snow cover on at least parts of the ski area is pretty much guaranteed from early-December until late April. Here is the snow record data for Chamonix. The first row shows the week for which the measurement applies eg. February 3 is the 3rd week in February. Top slopes shows the average snow cover in cm at the top of the ski area. Bottom Slopes shows the average snow cover in cm at the bottom of the ski area (this is generally where the nursery pistes are located). About 10 cm is generally enough to ski but it very much depends on what’s below ie. grass or more rocky surface.
