Snow overview for France
Thursday 17 April 2014

The fine sunny weather which blessed the French resorts on Monday 14th April has lasted all week. This has reduced base depths in some locations and the snow does soften quite quickly, with the freezing level hovering around the 2,500m mark or just above it. Clouds could move in as we move into the Easter weekend, but the good news is that the freezing level is expected to drop to around 2,000m on Saturday 19th April which could result in fresh snowfall.

As you might expect for this time of year it is best to stick to the highest slopes if you prefer the conditions to be less sun affected, especially the sheltered and higher north facing slopes.

The Pyrenean resorts of Cauterets (260/360cm) and Bareges/La Mongie (65/270cm) offer some superb skiing at the moment due to the deep snow bases on the upper slopes.

Further north in the Alps there is also excellent skiing available. The classics for late season, such as Tignes (40/190cm), Val d’Isere (40/128cm) and Val Thorens (85/190cm), offer fantastic spring skiing due to their high elevations. The upper slopes at La Plagne (5/200cm) are also in very good shape.  In the Southern Alps, Isola 2000 (95/270cm) has an impressive base depth on the higher slopes at the moment of over two and a half metres, providing lovely riding conditions.

Enjoying the huge expanse of the 3 Valleys
Overall rating: 4 stars

Visited: March 2014

A return to Meribel for three weeks with a range of conditions from hot, sunny spring to fresh powder.
Skiing wise, the 3 Valleys particularly suit those that like to cruise well groomed pistes and like to clock up the miles on endless different routes, as the the mountains and lift system are very extensive. The only negatives, if they can be called that, are that to go across the valleys, say from Meribel to Val Thorens, requires taking quite a few lifts and many of the connecting runs are essentially paths, Also black, red and blue runs often merge, resulting in skiers or boarders of all standards on the same run, which isn't ideal, particularly when busy, and there are many crossing pistes. The signposting is excellent so reference to the piste map shouldn't be required very often. It would be a waste to go to Meribel and not get a 3 Valleys ski pass.
The lift served off piste is vast and with plenty of open slopes so that route picking is easier than in many resorts.
The on slope apres is up there with the top resorts with the Folie Douce in Meribel and Val Thorens and Rondpoint in Meribel. In the resort there is live music being played all over the place, both at apres time and after dinner in places like the Meribar, Taverne, Jacks and Evolution (check up on the programmes as the evenings change).
There are lots of mountain restaurants offering everything from a sandwich, to plenty of self-serve and full table service. Caribou, Chalet de Thorens (great warm goats cheese salad) and Bouc Blanc spring to mind.
