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.
When visiting Chamonix there are a large number of great activities, one is to visit Park Merlet in Les Houches, Coupeau. Â
With children its a wonderful day out, there is a great Restaurant with fantastic views and a number of wonderful walks where you will spot lots of wildlife such asÂ Chamois, bouquetins, mouflons, marmottes and dear.
Getting there can be easy, there is a Bus service from Les Houches centre (Marie) that stops by the Train station in Les Houches and costs 2 Euros. Â This will still require a bit of a walk but it will be worth it.
We also offer transport to the Park either in one of our minibuses or our Eco taxi from anywhere in the Chamonix Valley.
