Skipping the pre-season in Chamonix this year and going straight for mid-winter powder skiing during most of December! Since it started it never really stopped. The cold storms with heavy snowfalls have been releasing each other, with just a few clear and warm days in-between.
This was our December 2011 and the whitest Christmas I've seen in the Chamonix valley. As the new year has just arrived we are excited and confident that 2012 is gonna be a BIG winter in the Alps!
