Snow overview for France
Thursday 26 March 2015

Thursday 26th March was a mostly cloudy day across the French Alps, with the best chance of brightness for the southern resorts. Elsewhere some light snow fell overnight, with the most being on the upper slopes as the milder air led to a wintry mix falling lower down.

For the best sunny skies on Thursday, the southern Alps and resorts such as Isola 2000 (125/175cm) and Foux d’Allos (46/157cm) provided the best bet. Some new snow was recorded here earlier this week, leading to some good ski conditions across the mountain. Expect some slushier conditions lower down and the odd bare patch as the recent warm weather has reduced the snow depth somewhat.

Thick clouds were covering the Portes du Soleil on Thursday, with resorts such as Avoriaz (120/270cm), Chatel (65/165cm) and Morzine (25/110cm) remaining socked in. Some light dustings of snow were recorded at these resorts, but the tricky visibility led to some difficult skiing conditions.

Resorts with the very highest slopes were fortunate to see sunshine, but only above around 2,800m. For example, the Pic Blanc above Alpe d’Huez (78/170cm) was bathed in sunshine, as was the Roche de Mio above La Plagne (15/155cm).

Sunnier skies are forecast for Friday, but don’t expect brilliant blue skies as the clouds are not far away. These are set to return on Saturday and are set to bring 15-40cm of snow on Sunday with a freezing level of around 1,800m.

This year we had wonderful blue sky days and powder underfoot. The week started skiing off piste making fresh tracks following a decent overnight snowfall. We skied our last day in fantastic snowy conditions. The powder becoming thicker and thicker. As a telemark skier making tracks through the trees it was about as good as it gets. However even the poorest resort is great in good snow.
My attraction to La Clusaz is the complex terrain opportunities. There is a wide range of pistes but this is not a wide expanding resort with 100's of km to ski. The ski areas are separated by rock bands. There are lumps and bumps to skoot over and jump. This is the playground of Candide Thorvex and the level of the off piste skiing is unparalleled. You watch in awe from the lifts at the tricks. There is extensive back country adventure waiting to be explored with a guide. The community of La Clusaz can only house a relatively small number of people and hense the slopes are rarely crowded.
The obvious limutation of the resort is the less than snow sure height. However I've never had a poor trip. I've been lucky.
