Firstly, a very happy Christmas to you all all. We hope all your wishes have come true and if your are in the Chamonix Valley that you are enjoying the wonderful snow conditions during the Christmas ski holidays.
Certainly our wish of plenty of snow this Christmas seems to have been heard, although it does seem to follow that we are either complaining about not enough snow, or too much! We are therefore trying to avoid being ungrateful here, mainly for fear of upsetting the Snow Gods for them to never return, but this year it is going to be a close call on not speaking up as it has fallen by the bucket loads (we love it really)!
This Christmas week the high mountain is reporting 2 metres of snow, with much more to come. A further 80cm is forecast next week with little respite on the horizon. So when do we start to say enough is enough?
New Year skiers can therefore expecting lots of snow and powder, however, with most of the week expected to fluctuate between snow flurries and heavy dumps, low light goggles and warm attire is strongly advised.
With the snow falling heavily throughout December and during the Christmas week, the New Year skiing looks set to offer great ski conditions, particularly with more snow on the way. Current snow depths according our friends at Compagnie du Mont Blanc are currently:
- Low Mountain (Resort): 30cm
- Mid Mountain: 140cm
- High Mountain: 200cm
2 metres at Christmas, sounds good to us! So, will the high mountain hit 3 metres next week? We certainly expect it to clear 2.5 metres! What do you think?
A recent deferral due to work commitments by one of our clients has resulted in the half-term ski holiday week, commencing 10th February 2018 to become free. Thanks to Fran and some of our trusted agents, already interest is high. The week catered (Luxury Plus) starts at £15,000 for up to ten people.
