The avalanche risk in Chamonix has jumped up to Level 5 (the highest) today, due to all the snow that just keeps on falling. More snowfalls are expected to continue next week, and the avalanche risk is due to fall as the snow starts to stabalise. This is great news for all our groups heading out to the Alps this weekend. Our snowshoeing season starts tomorrow, with groups heading out most days from then onwards. There is deep snow now in Chamonix town, with a lot more forecast, so if you are driving out, make sure that you have winter tyres or chains as the roads higher up the valley will be snow covered.
