Snow overview for France
Monday 08 February 2016

The skiing conditions across the French resorts were generally very good on Monday 8th February and all of the resorts we feature in France, except Font Romeu (35cm), report fresh snowfall in February. The majority of resorts received snowfall over the weekend too, adding to the snow that fell last week. Monday brought a mixture of sun and cloud, with a chance of further snowfall in the evening.

The stand-out resort on Monday for snowfall was Serre Chevalier (25/130cm), which reported 50cm of new snow landing on the upper slopes on Sunday 7th February.

Chamonix (30/360cm) is still at the top of the chart in France for base depth, with over three metres of snow on the upper mountain, but this is on the Aiguille du Midi, which is not a typical skiing area. Morillon (10/245cm) and Flaine (10/245cm) in the Grand Massif ski area sit in joint second place with just under two and half metres of snow measured on their upper ski slopes.

Cloudy weather is forecast to dominate for most of this week and into next week, with further fresh snowfall expected at all of our featured French skiing locations. Again the Chamonix valley is set to get a lot of new snow, although La Grave (60/100cm) is close to the top of the table too. At La Grave, over two and a half metres of new snow forecast at mid-mountain level by the end of Tuesday 16th February, with the heaviest snow landing over next weekend.

Fantastic place to ski

Really enjoyed a weeks skiing on vast amounts of snow, even in spring conditions. It's actually a rather pretty resort. Purpose built but not a concrete jungle. Well organised ski-in and out. Recommend booking yourself with Pierre et Vacance ... Easy drive from Calais, loads of underground parking etc. fantastic for kids as no cars in the resort itself. As it was end of season, plenty of cheap kit being sold off. Food seemed relatively cheap in comparison with some places. Good lunch stops at Lindarets. We are not ones for wild night life so if you like it quiet the Falaise area of the resort it lovely and quiet with a couple of restaurants and bars and very close to the parking too! Self catering accommodation is great and the flexibility of coming and going was fab. You can book everything online much more cheaply before you go too (make sure you use your membership card). We loved it and we will definitely go back.
