Generally speaking, Chamonix is a snow sure resort and the season usually lasts well into May. However, some places have better snow than others. For example, Balme is situated in a particularly snowy location and doesn’t struggle for good coverage. With high altitude and slopes facing in all different directions, there’s always good snow to be found, you can’t always ski to the bottom of the valley at 1000m, but this really isn’t a problem as the system is especially set up for this.   

Snowmaking in Chamonix has been increased in recent years in many places, including the Flegere which improves access to Brevent. Moreover, snowmaking is particularly prevalent on the lower beginner slopes.

So if you're asking 'Is Chamonix snow sure?', then yes, at higher elevations Chamonix has consistently good snow throughout the season, but lower slopes do tend to suffer in the shoulder season.
