Snow overview for France
Thursday 04 February 2016

The last week has seen the conditions improve once again at resorts of the Northern French Alps. There has been some snowfall on the Southern Alps and Pyrenees but the snow has not fallen as heavily as at those resorts further north.

The greatest snowfall of all of the resorts we feature across the world has been reported at Chamonix (20/320cm), where almost two and a half metres of fresh snow has fallen over the last week up on the Aiguille du Midi. The snowfall total down in the main ski area in Argentiere (20/240cm) is lower but still impressive at a metre and a half in the last seven days.

The resorts across the Northern Alps were in great shape on Thursday 4th February, as this region received the greatest amount of new snow in the recent storm. The weather was a mixture of sun and cloud. The skies were much brighter for those resorts in the Southern Alps, providing excellent visibility to enjoy the packed and groomed now on piste. Fresh snow has landed over the last week. Serre Chevalier (20/115cm) is a very popular resort in this region and here 25cm of new snow landed on 31st January.

Further snowfall is expected over the coming days too across the French resorts, in the north and south, which will top up the bases ahead of the increase to visitor numbers over the half term period.

First skiing of 2015/16 in 3 Vallees
Overall rating: 5 stars
Paul Bridgland
Visited: December 2015

We stayed with Ski Magic in La Tania from the 12th to 26th December and had a great couple of weeks.
Compared to the last couple of years when you could not ski into La Tania for the first week, you could ski right down on the Folyeres piste which was in superb condition. Indeed we would always make the most of this run before moving onto other favourite pistes of the holiday including Lapin to Meribel Village, La Masse runs in Les Menuires and from the top of the Plantrey chair down the red through 1850 to 1550 in Courchevel. Of course not all pistes were open but the great advantage of 3 vallees is there are still plenty to enjoy. The 3 vallees team worked hard to maintain and improve them using everything from shovels to helicopters to move the snow around.
We highly recommend the Bouc Blanc bar by the top of La Tania gondola for a quick drink on the way home whilst the pistes empty for a clean run down the Folyeres to end the day. Once in resort the Ski Lodge is a popular haunt for young and not so young apres with La Taiga and Chrome Bar offering (most of the time) a quieter end to the day.
Chalet Chocolat run by Sue and Pete provided an excellent base with plenty of good food and company to make the stay a great one.
Hopefully with fresh snow when we return later in January it will be a 5/5 in all areas!
