Snow overview for France
Tuesday 22 April 2014

The Easter weekend was the end of the season for many French ski area, although around two thirds of the French resorts are still open for skiing. This is the last week of winter operations for a number of resorts though, including Cauterets (200/300cm), Meribel (30/95cm), La Plagne (0/215cm) and Les Arcs (33/166cm)

Fresh snow fell over the weekend at resorts in the Northern Alps too, providing excellent skiing conditions in areas such as the Espace Killy, the Paradiski area and the Three Valleys.

The temperature has increased again this week though and as a result spring skiing conditions dominate. Cloudy skies are forecast across this week and next weekend, with the freezing level remaining above 2,000m. This could rise to around 3,000m later this week, bringing rain to many locations.

Chamonix minitrip!
Overall rating: 5 stars

Visited: April 2014

Cham remains one of the jewels of skiing anywhere in the world. Short 3 day trip at Grand Montets, Tours and very sunny Vallee Blanche. Spring snow and fantastic weather.

Grand Montets packs massive amounts of the greatest skiing anywhere into a relatively small acreage. A must for reasonable/ good skiers who have never been there.
