Snow overview for France
Thursday 18 December 2014

Unfortunately rain was falling across much of France on Thursday 18th December. This followed some good snowfalls of up to 20cm on Wednesday, which below approximately 2,000-2,500m will have been affected by the rainfall. That being said, upper slopes will make good gains from this snowstorm, so hopefully more terrain up high should open for the coming weekend.

The best conditions again remain at altitude, with glacier resorts seeing the most snowfall but more importantly snow on Thursday rather than rain. Tignes (25/40cm) saw 20cm up on the Grande Motte glacier and over the links across to Val d’Isere (10/40cm). Val Thorens (60/100cm) continues its excellent start to the season, reporting 20cm of fresh snow and owing to its high altitude it was still snowing on Thursday.

Elsewhere, the situation is not looking as good. In the lower resorts, such as those in the Portes du Soleil the rain has been a big set back. The upper slopes should hold on to Wednesday’s snowfall, but the latest webcam images on Thursday suggest that at resort level much of this is already melting.

As many resorts are due to open this weekend, keep an eye on resort websites for the latest opening information following Thursday’’s rainfall.

This picturresque alpine village exudes Savoyard charm and has skiing to suit all skiers and boarders.
With 4 distinct ski areas, all linked by quick lifts you can spend all day in one area or tour around, stopping for lunch in one of the many mountain restaurants.
Beauregard offers greens, blues and reds to suit beginners and intermediate skiers and quickly links into Manigod and l'Etale, where it starts to get more adventurous with ace tree runs and some uncomplicated off-piste
L'Aiguille above the village and most easily accessed again mixes blues and reds, with shallow slopes for the less advanced.
La Balme offers the highest skiing and is a paradise for freeriders, especially around the Torchere lift.
What stands La Clusaz apart is the terrain that rolls amongst limestone ridges and just gets better as you get to know it.
The stand out off-piste skiing is in the Combe de Borderan, Combe de Bella Chat and over in the trees of l'Etale - better and safer with a loal guide.

The village has a great mix of bars and restaurants, oozing that charm and with prices for all. Favourites would be the Caves du Paccaly for apres and l'Outa for dinner. But the village is small enough to wander around and dive into wherever takes your fancy
Only an hour from Geneva, this small town should be busier, but it's mainly a French and local resort. So pay a visit and then keep quiet about it!
