Snow overview for France
Thursday 05 March 2015

Great skiing is on offer across France at present, particularly in those areas that caught the most snowfall at the start of the week. High winds unfortunately limited some ski areas, but with sunny skies firmly in place, Thursday 5th March was certainly a great day to be out on the slopes.

Some of the heaviest falls of snow this week were picked up in the Grand Massif ski region, with resorts such as Flaine (63/240cm) and Samoens (92/168cm) reporting some great powder conditions. Similarly, the Chamonix (20/210cm) valley was offering some great fresh tracks following the snow earlier this week.

The Ski Club’s Ambassadors in the Espace Killy both reported some fantastic powder conditions across the area. The best snow was above Val d’Isere (113/175cm) at le Fornet and up towards the Pissalis Glacier.

Sadly high winds curtailed lift operations at several resorts, including Alpe d’Huez (109/200cm) which was able to run only 10 of its 49 lifts and Serre Chevalier (35/150cm) had 18 of its 62 lifts shut due to high winds.

Sunny skies are forecast for the weekend and into next week as well, with rising temperatures set to provide some very pleasant skiing conditions.

Club Med 1900
Overall rating: 5 stars

Visited: January 2015

For a Family trip (my sister and her husband and 3 under 10's) along with myself and our mother. Club Med certainly suited Families - and was even quite fun for myself and 60+ mother.

Brilliant ski in/Ski out all inclusive with lessons - therefore I did not take up the offer of meeting with the rep.

The Ski Club discount at Ski set was used as usual, very handy to have a car to take the skis to and from the hotel - but could have stored them at the shop had we wanted.

This was much better value than the skis at the Club Med - and the staff at Ski set were really helpful - only one small issue that they should have realised that my sister's boot issues were down to the incorrect size of boot - once noticed - on second re-visit the problem was fixed very satisfactorily.

resort itself had great snow was almost 100% open and really catered for all capabilities. beginners to guided off piste with the ESF.

All inclusive hence no rating for eating, apres and value for money
