Winter 2021/22 is about to kick off and the conditions in Chamonix are looking great.
We have had snow down to low level (Geneva) for a good few days now and there is more forecast. This, coupled with the fact that we have had snow at altitude now for a number of weeks means that the snow depths about 1800m are good and ready to go.
For this reason The Compagnie du Mont-Blanc have announced that from next weekend (4th December 2021) certain areas of Grand Montets will be open full time (not just weekends).
With the storm that is coming this weekend notably Saturday things should be off to a great start.
Now that Chamonix is open for skiing you might be looking for an easy way of getting to the slopes. We have a dedicated vehicle (normally more than 1) servicing the valley for groups and individuals that dont want to stand in line for the bus or who require a lift home after an extended “Apres Ski”……
The frosty mornings have returned all too quickly and we are looking at the beginning of another winter! 2018/19. I really can’t believe how quickly summer went.
Please don’t forget to book your Geneva airport transfer as soon as you book your flights and accommodation to avoid any disappointment, and of course always book with a reputable firm. There are many dodgy transport operators out there that shouldn’t be working.
The latest snow forecast for the Alps is looking very good!
If you have not already booked your airport transfer now might be a good time. Â An early dump of snow followed by cold weather is the perfect start to the season and means that Xmas and New Year is more likely to be “Snow Sure”.
We will of course be following this and reporting as soon as we see the white stuff falling out of the sky.
Chamonix cabs are the first and (so far) the only Taxi/Transfer company in theÂ area offering an “Eco” service with 100% electric cars.Â
Summer in Chamonix is about to kick off with the “fete de la musique” and then the Mont-Blanc Marathon followed by a constant stream of events right through until the end of September.
During the summer we are available non stop for in-Valley “Taxi” services. Â We have a large selection of vehicles available from Eco electric cars right through to luxury Mercedes vehicles, we can move any number of people and cover any distance short and long.
Policing of the “normal” route and Trois mont-Blanc route on Mont-Blanc will now go ahead for this coming summer climbing season 2013.
From June through to September police will be placed on two very popular climbing routes to inform and, when necessary prevent people attempting Mont Blanc.
They will mostly be present in two places: the Col du Midi and the Tete Rousse hut. They are being placed there to educate climbers and give advice for a successful summit attempt. They will look at equipment, peoples fitness, weather and other factors.
The only place where is it permited toÂ bivouac is at the TÃªte Rousse, where there is a designated camping area.
