I might be able to squeeze 1 day of skiing in Chamonix (Grands Montets) on the last weekend after a business trip in Geneva (May 4, 2014). Conditions do not look nearly as good as in 2012 when I did the same, at least judging from the web site (dirt showing in webcam images; "spring snow" label). Any locals have on-the-spot information that is more optimistic?
End-of-season (May 2014) conditions in Chamonix?

No but I was there exactly a month ago and it has been very low snow year. You could ski all the way to the bottom of Grand Montets on 1 run. The top was mostly frozen solid when we were there so I am sure there is skiing. A lot more rock showing than usual from what I was told.
