Snow overview for France
Thursday 22 January 2015

France caught some good snowfall over the weekend and some places, especially in the west and the south, have continued to pick up more in the past few days. As a result conditions are generally good across the board, with icy and bare spots now limited and some powder stashes to be found off piste.

Some of the resorts that have struggled the most so far this season have seen some of the best falls of snow in the past week. The conditions at Foux d’Allos (45/155cm) and Chamrousse (40/70cm) have been vastly improved this week, but more snow is still needed to open the final few lifts.

Conditions in the high resorts of the Haute-Savoie continue to be good. Ski Club Ambassadors at Meribel (25/95cm), Val Thorens (90/130cm) and Courchevel (51/86cm) in the Three Valleys have all reported some great conditions this week across the huge ski area.

Cauterets (100/170cm) was reporting 10cm of fresh snow on Thursday 22nd January, adding to the already impressive base depth in the resort. 12 of the resorts 16 lifts were turning and some great powder has been reported across the mountain.

Some light snow is expected this weekend across the French Alps and also the Pyrenees, although totals are unlikely to top 10cm for most. Cold temperatures (-10C at mid-mountain), so whatever snow does fall will be very light and should make for some excellent skiing.

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!
