The amazing winter in Chamonix continues.
WOW....the conditions here in the Chamonix valley continue to be amazing with another substantial snowfall this week. The snow started on Monday and went through until this morning when the sun returned and I was out there to make the most of it.

Everyone keeps harping on about how great a season it is but that's a bit of an understatement, the snow just keeps coming week after week adding to the already huge snowpack depth.

Click to view full imageThe upper mountain now has a snowpack of over 4 meters and mid station altitude is now at 2 meters so the base of snow now would last until the end of the season. The snow is dry and even though there has been some wind this week there was some amazing powder turns to be had.
