Snow overview for France
Monday 27 March 2017

Monday 27th of March saw a return to sunny weather after recent snow storms in the Alps and Pyrenees.
 
People skiing in Alpe d’Huez (100/200cm) over the weekend woke up to 20cm of new snow, and for a few hours at least, were able to put down some fresh tracks in the sunshine. It didn’t take long for the slopes to return to spring conditions, however, thanks to the warm weather. Slopes softened up fast today and resort runs were slushy early on. With these late season powder days, you need to be there when the snow is falling or you will miss the best of it.

Alpe d’Huez wasn’t the only place to get new snow towards the end of last week and over the weekend, as a number of places experienced a late season top up. Among the biggest winners were Bonneval sur Arc (90/310cm) and Val Cenis (40/235cm) – both got around 40cm of fresh snow. It’s worth bearing in mind that this is already tracked out and snow is fast returning to spring conditions. There were also some fantastic conditions in Montgenevre (140/250cm), where 30cm of new snow fell yesterday, and fresh powder can be skied for a little while longer. Finally, Val d’Isere (98/227cm) is a great option today with 60cm falling yesterday. Tignes (98/227cm) got marginally less, but still lots of new snow there.

Overall, yesterday and today were great days for many resorts in the Alps and the Pyrenees. As the sun is set to stay out this week, we can expect spring conditions to get more and more intense, with slushy slopes throughout resorts.

La Clusaz is a beautiful mountain village, with plenty of shops, restaurants and bars/cafes. There was plenty of snow still when we arrived for Easter with good links to the other mountains. A good Beginner/intermediate resort, we are keen to return.
