Chamonix late season

Is there still a decent amount of good skiing at Chamonix mid-late April?
post #2 of 2

I think it depends on the year. Last season I was able to ski on May 5 (2012) after a business trip to Geneva because late snowfall had permitted the highest station at Chamonix (Les Grands Montets) to stay open later than expected. It had been scheduled to close April 22 or something. See http://www.epicski.com/t/112349/1-day-solo-at-chamonix-les-grands-montets-may-5-2012


I personally would not book a late trip in advance just to ski, but if you will be in the area for other reasons you should definitely keep an eye on conditions and bring your gear. Here's the English version of the current conditions web page: http://www.compagniedumontblanc.co.uk/en/lifts-chamonix
