Snow started falling heavily last night across the Alps, and this morning many Chamonix residents found themselves snowed in! After the great snowfalls of last year, many were sceptical that we would have a repeat performance. It seems those fears are set aside, and we now have the greatest amount of pre-season snow that has been seen for years. The forecasts predict snow to continue to fall until Friday morning. For all those packing for Chamonix courses next week, make sure you don’t forget those gaiters and waterproof trousers, as for sure you’ll be seeing more snow that you will have for a while.
