2012 in Chamonix 'is amazing'

The next three months in Chamonix look set to provide some of the most amazing skiing conditions in the world, and will ensure that nobody is disappointed on their ski holidays, it has been claimed.

According to the advice site Planet Ski, the huge snowfall over the last few weeks has provided perfect conditions which are the best seen for many years.

"This winter there is deep powder snow everywhere, with piles of cleared snow at the top. There is currently, at the beginning of February, a snow depth of 4.5m, which is the highest depth for many years," the site explained.

What is perhaps best of all is that, on the way back down to the valley floor, the rocks are thoroughly covered and the snow is deep, with even locals saying it is one of the best seasons they can remember, the source added.

It explained that, baring exceptional weather conditions, there should be plenty of snow until the last lift runs, with nearby resorts such as Les Houches having equally good snow and likely to remain covered in the white stuff.

The site added that, although many people head on ski weekends in December and January, there are great winter sports opportunities for the entire ski season.

"Many of those in the know recommend the end of the winter as one of the best times to ski. March, April and even May often sees uncrowded pistes, long sunny days, a good base and a more relaxed and laid back atmosphere," it added.

A spokeswoman from the Chamonix Tourist Office noted that Mont Blanc has an excellent spring skiing record and the Grands Montets does not close until May, so the great quantities of snow this year should ensure March and April will be an "awesome" time for ski holidays.
