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.

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.
