You should not be worried at all about skiing in Chamonix in April or late March, you will find good conditions in the resort for off piste skiing and for the Vallee Blanche.

To give you an example you should have a look at pictures from off piste skiing in Chamonix at: www.mountainspirit.info/gallery.asp…

I was there for the end of season party in May. The town was at nearly 30 degrees celcius and everyone in shorts etc- whilst up on the slopes the snow was only slightly heavy but fine. That was in MAY- so you will be fine!

Normally there's a reasonable chance of good conditions on the higher slopes. Log onto www.chamonet.com/dump_alert : they send regular updates whenever there's a dump of snow.
