Snow overview for France
Thursday 28 April 2016

Only ten of our featured resorts in Austria remain open for snowsports on Thursday 28th April, with this weekend set to see further closures. Good late season skiing still available across many resorts, particularly across the high glacial resorts where some good snowfall over the course of the week ensuring that pistes across the upper mountain remain in good condition. The cloud affecting many resorts on Thursday is set to hand around over much of the weekend, with fluctuating temperatures seeing the possibility of some light snow and rain fall during this period.

First time in Les Arcs, won't be my last, but I won't be staying in Arc2000 again.

I'm an advanced intermediate who's been around the gates a few times but this was my first time housed in a hotel that functions as the Arc2000 bus station. I've been in nicer prisons with better food and service. Industrial style, over-hot and dank with French-style dysfunctional lighting I can live with, but an aroma of deeply embedded piss takes ... the piste. After complaining, management opened doors between the corridors so everyone could smell it. Our cell held 3 beds, one with a table bolted over it in case we'd brought our dwarf friend. The shower worked so that was an unexpected bonus. Notes compared with the others in our group confirmed we weren't just unlucky. Sloppy refectory food, self-service, clean-up after yourself too. A ski locker that collapsed when boots were put in - not to dry, just to stay wet.

Arcs pistes were great as was the weather and snow ... if only night didn't come, forcing us back inside before curfew. Arc 1950 showed how it should be done, a pretty village square, Radisson accommodation, deli, ski and coffee shops. A small number of good restaurants and a couple of bars. Perfect, and we spent our off-piste hours here. Funnily enough we kept bumping into the other members of our party. I wonder why?

La Plagne area was prettier than Arcs with Belle Plagne the nicest. Skiing there was a bit 'easier', aimed more at post-beginner/early intermediate but still a reasonable range of reds and blacks though not with the scale of Arcs black moguls. On-piste restaurants and bars were good, the two best in Arcs were Bulle Bar on Arcabulle and Solliet on Solliet. L'arpette on ... had naked men dancing in cages if that's your thing.

The tour companies have to answer for this: they drive down prices to a point where owners can't invest. I've already lodged my complaint with #DontSkiCrystal.
