There is now going to be a 13th month added to the calander. It going to be called Fevril. It's actually going to be scheduled to happen in February but incorporate April's weather at the same time as February's, but mostly Aprils. It is being trailed this year and its not universally popular especially in the ski resorts like Megeve.
At valley floor level there is no snow. The cross - country tracks have been closed and the trees are begining to show signs of buds.

Yet above 2000 meters the snow cover is excellent. Recent regular to ups of snow have produced some good off-piste skiing conditions. The Vallee Blanche has been in good condition - especially considering how bad it was last year.
