When is it ski season in Chamonix?

Yeah, yeah, yeah; I know...this is one of those questions you seasoned travelers hate because it sounds like I'm asking you to predict the weather! Well, I'm not; I'm merely asking for your experience, if you have any. Besides, kickoff isn't for another hour, I don't give a flying **** about either team, and I'm bored out of my skull, so I'll ask! Multiple choice: In general, in your experience, is it: a) usually b) almost always
c) practically never still ski season in Chamonix in mid-April?

If you're going this year, I'll make a prediction... despite getting a late start this year, there's been so much snow that, barring an unusually warm spring, they may even be able to stretch the ski season out to May. If you're going next year... I don't know.

Thanks. Actually, I'm going to be traveling all around Europe all April, with no itinerary. I am not going to ski. I only want to see mountain scenery, and maybe ride the cable car to one of the peaks near Chamonix. But if it is likely to still be ski season, I may leave that for a different trip. I'd be competing with skiers who can afford to pay a lot more for rooms and meals than I want to, even if I could find space at all. Thank you for the prediction. This helps me a lot.

Well how happy am I that we are being asked to give our volunteer time that could be used for people who have genuine needs because: I don't give a flying **** about either team, and I'm bored out of my skull, so I'll ask! Well I don't give a .... about people who just take up our time because they ... don't give a flying **** about either team, and I'm bored out of my skull, so I'll ask!

Nigel, I'm sorry my sense of humor, such as it is, offended you. That was not my intention.
