Snow overview for France
Thursday 26 March 2015

Thursday 26th March was a mostly cloudy day across the French Alps, with the best chance of brightness for the southern resorts. Elsewhere some light snow fell overnight, with the most being on the upper slopes as the milder air led to a wintry mix falling lower down.

For the best sunny skies on Thursday, the southern Alps and resorts such as Isola 2000 (125/175cm) and Foux d’Allos (46/157cm) provided the best bet. Some new snow was recorded here earlier this week, leading to some good ski conditions across the mountain. Expect some slushier conditions lower down and the odd bare patch as the recent warm weather has reduced the snow depth somewhat.

Thick clouds were covering the Portes du Soleil on Thursday, with resorts such as Avoriaz (120/270cm), Chatel (65/165cm) and Morzine (25/110cm) remaining socked in. Some light dustings of snow were recorded at these resorts, but the tricky visibility led to some difficult skiing conditions.

Resorts with the very highest slopes were fortunate to see sunshine, but only above around 2,800m. For example, the Pic Blanc above Alpe d’Huez (78/170cm) was bathed in sunshine, as was the Roche de Mio above La Plagne (15/155cm).

Sunnier skies are forecast for Friday, but don’t expect brilliant blue skies as the clouds are not far away. These are set to return on Saturday and are set to bring 15-40cm of snow on Sunday with a freezing level of around 1,800m.

HONESTLY NOT THE BEST
Overall rating: 3 stars
Michelle Hodson
Visited: February 2015

The best thing about Morzine is the short transfer time from Geneva, approx. 1 1/2 hrs, which makes it ideal as a short break/weekend destination. After hearing so much about this resort and the Portes du Soleil ski area we expected to love it. The village is huge, which means a lot of accommodation, which means very busy slopes. Also the area is NOT truly linked. Skiing from Morzine and down into les Gets you then have to take off skis/boards and either walk across town or wait for a little train which will take you onto Mont Cherie. The same is true coming into Morzine from Avoriaz. You cannot ski down and have to take the Super Morzine down into the village where again you walk across town to Plenney or wait for the train. In our opinion if staying in Morzine the better option is to take the Super Morzine and from there you can ski to Avoriaz, Chatel (very nice) and into Switzerland. This area is better linked. Not a lot to test the advanced skier. The only blacks we came across were reds left unpisted. We would NOT rush back and much prefer les Trois Valleys and L'espace killy.
