Snow overview for France
Thursday 19 January 2017

Thursday 19th of January was a superb day for slope skiing as the fresh snow off-piste starts to become stale. The weather was almost perfect right the way across the country with light clouds and most and clear blue skies providing stunning vistas of both mountain ranges.

Flaine (70/200cm) and the rest of the Grand Massif have much improved conditions with slopes providing some really enjoyable skiing. The links between resorts are now finally open, much to the relief of holidaymakers. We have to mention some resorts in the Pyrenees, as these have had monumental dumps recently. Bareges/La Mongie (100/180cm) has 80cm of fresh snow at the top of the mountain, though this is fast getting tracked out. Cauterets (85/250cm) is also in amazing nick right the way down to the valley floor. Loads of fresh powder still to be found there.

If you want powder you best head to the Pyrenees, but if you want excellent slope skiing and excellent weather, all of France is providing these in abundance right now.
