Warning Avalanche

Avalanche Warning & Info

After weeks of wet snow in the Chamonix Valley the amount of heavy snow at altitude is remarkable.

The weather is going to to get hot and sunny on Tuesday 23rd & Wednesday the 24th, but this will not last long as yet another huge cold front comes in for the attack over the weekend.

The skiing has been fantastic to say the least even if a tad hectic to find an open resort. But there is a more sinister side to this EPIC winter season, Chamonix has been on a high avalanche alert for many weeks now.  Human detonated slides have been taking place up and down the valley with natural ones in between.

Many areas have been shut off & even evacuated over the past weeks and that is not set to change tonight, Les Houches, Le Tour and Route des Pecles Chamonix center just to name a few.

Stay indoors in the evening and don’t venture into restricted zones.
