I went to bed last night with low expectations after checking the forecast but woke up this morning to a nice surprise – falling snow. Chamonix-meteo.com is calling 10-20cm at 1500m today, while snow-forecast.com is a lot stingier with 4cm at 2438m with 15-20km/hr wind from the southwest and 25-30km/hr from the west at 3840m.
This weekend saw knee-deep and light on Brevent with snow all the way to the bottom and, from what I experienced, a surprisingly solid snowpack. Top of Grands Montets is still showing closed for today. When it opens it’s gonna be good.
