Snow overview for France
Monday 08 February 2016

The skiing conditions across the French resorts were generally very good on Monday 8th February and all of the resorts we feature in France, except Font Romeu (35cm), report fresh snowfall in February. The majority of resorts received snowfall over the weekend too, adding to the snow that fell last week. Monday brought a mixture of sun and cloud, with a chance of further snowfall in the evening.

The stand-out resort on Monday for snowfall was Serre Chevalier (25/130cm), which reported 50cm of new snow landing on the upper slopes on Sunday 7th February.

Chamonix (30/360cm) is still at the top of the chart in France for base depth, with over three metres of snow on the upper mountain, but this is on the Aiguille du Midi, which is not a typical skiing area. Morillon (10/245cm) and Flaine (10/245cm) in the Grand Massif ski area sit in joint second place with just under two and half metres of snow measured on their upper ski slopes.

Cloudy weather is forecast to dominate for most of this week and into next week, with further fresh snowfall expected at all of our featured French skiing locations. Again the Chamonix valley is set to get a lot of new snow, although La Grave (60/100cm) is close to the top of the table too. At La Grave, over two and a half metres of new snow forecast at mid-mountain level by the end of Tuesday 16th February, with the heaviest snow landing over next weekend.

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.
