Snow overview for France
Monday 14 April 2014

Excellent spring riding conditions exist across the open French resorts this week. Bright sunny weather blessed skiers on Monday 14th April, and similar weather is expected for most of this week. Clouds could move in as we move into the Easter weekend.

The deepest base depth of our featured French resorts is reported at Cauterets (310/410cm) in the Pyrenees. The skiing is very good at Cauterets and at Bareges/La Mongie (90/300cm) due to the excellent snowfall the Pyrenees has received this season.

St Gervais and Chamrousse both closed for the season over the weekend, joining Font Romeu, Foux d’Allos, Notre Dame de Bellecombe and Villard de Lans.

Visited: February 2014

The architecture and design of the resort will not be to everyone's liking, but being ski out and in is convenient. We were in the Pas du Lac block very close to the top station of the Prodain cable car. We got a transfer from Geneva (90 mins) to the bottom of the Prodain lift and took it up to Avoriaz. We bought our lift passes at the bottom and got a free return on the cable car for our arrival and departure days which saved us some cash. Getting luggage to and from our apartment was ok, but for most apartments a horse drawn sleigh or caterpillar track taxi would probably be required, particularly if you have children too small to carry their own bags.

I am not a fan of self catering in France, the apartment would have been very cramped with four people in it, fortunately there were just two of us. Restaurants were ok, but don't start serving until 7pm and it was essential to book. Which could be a problem for a family with young children. We'd recommend the Wild Horse, the burgers and ribs we had were excellent. There are several supermarkets in the main shopping area for those who would prefer to cook for themselves.

We were there after UK school holidays but some French schools were still on holiday, so it was quite busy, but still lift queues were seldom more than 5 Minutes. Runs are predominately red and blue. There are off-piste possibilities from the lifts, but you would need to get an early start to get first tracks. Being high the snow was excellent, when Avoriaz was getting fresh powder, it was raining in Morzine!!
