Snow overview for France
Thursday 20 November 2014

The fantastic amount of fresh snow recently has allowed resorts to work on the slopes and a number of resorts will open this weekend.

It is already possible to ski at Tignes (15/70cm), with excellent early season riding up on the Grande Motte glacier.

Val Thorens (30/60cm) will open for their full winter season this Saturday 22nd November and with 20cm of fresh snow falling into 18th November the riding will be excellent this opening day.

La Clusaz (0/100cm) will open for skiing on the Balme area for Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd November, with reportedly the best conditions high up at this time of year for 15 years.

Alpe d’Huez (10/150cm) will also open for skiing this weekend, along with parts of the Montgenevre skiing area (10/30cm) on the French side of the Milky Way ski domain.

Serre Chevalier plans to open for weekend skiing on 29th and 30th November, as a season pre-opener. They are saying this is the first time they’ve opened for a pre-opener in November.

Chatel plans to open for weekend skiing in the Pre-la-Joux area from 29th until they open daily on 13th December. Font Romeu, Les Deux Alpes and Val d’Isere all plan to offer skiing on 29th November, along with Bareges/La Mongie and Cauterets in the Pyrenees.

The forecast across the French resorts is for the bright weather of Thursday 20th to continue into Friday before clouds build, with a chance of rain and snow towards the end of the weekend.

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!!
