Chamonix the first week of June- SUNNY or NOT?

We hope to travel to Chamonix from Lyon the first week of June for a few days. What are the chances of having good weather to go up on all the lifts for views and hiking? If this is a bad time of year, then we will go to Burgundy instead. Thanks for any tips and advice!

It *should* be okay -- but who can predict the weather that far out?

The only thing predictable about the weather in the high mountains is that the weather will be unpredictable. So the best way to deal with is keep your schedule flexible if possible. So if you planned to take a gondola ride in the morning but it's foggy up top (there is often a webcam you can check), then flip-flop your morning and afternoon schedules. I know this is not always possible, but it can help.

Hi,

The weather in June is normally quite settled, it's cooler than summer and the alpine flowers are in bloom. BUT you are in the mountains and it can be very difficult to say for sure. If you're looking forward to using cable cars then check out the summer lift opening times on the link below:

Early June is a great time to be in Chamonix and you don't need the lifts to be open to enjoy some of the best walks in the valley and surrounding areas. It's also much quieter in the hills than August and a bit cheaper to stay !

Good luck.

I think that June weather is more often pretty good - with a tendency to being stormy in the afternoons in very early June but this often makes for crystal clear skies first thing in the mornings. Fingers crossed !
