Powder Skiing in December 2011

By Mountainspirit @Mountain_Guides

Coming home to Chamonix from Thailand first week in December we had to readjust quickly into ski mode – it was dumping hard and the rocks were buried at a rapid pace after a warm and dry autumn in Chamonix. Since it started it never really stopped. The cold storms with heavy snowfalls have been releasing each other, with only single clear and warms day in-between them. The result was the whitest Christmas we have seen in a very long time in the Chamonix valley.

As 2012 has just arrived we are excited and confident that 2012 will be a BIG winter in the Alps. We aim to produce a monthly ski report capturing the recent conditions and happy moments through out the winter, so stay tuned!

This was our December 2011. The pre-season skiing took place mostly in Chamonix, but also a short visit to St Anton. Enjoy and be inspired if you missed it, remember if you were here…
