Chamonix in Mar/Apr?

I love mountains, but for hiking, not skiing. I'm planing a trip to eastern France for the end of March - beginning of April - BA and Air France have some hard-to-resist fares. If I were to arrive in Chamonix the very end of March, would it still be too snowy for hiking?

Worse than 'yes.'

Probably. If it's not too slushy.

Thanks. I guess I'll head for Lyon instead. How about Annecy? Will that still be snowy too?

In March mountains have snow. (Some roads don;t open until June.)

Only lowlands will be snow free - but likely muddy.

I decided not to go - hope you have fun! (I'm in Nice this weekend.)
