Snow overview for France
Thursday 23 February 2017

Thursday 23rd of February was yet another sunny day in France. The general story is of hard packed slopes up high and where the most traffic is but soft, spring like conditions on resort runs. Overall, conditions are very variable on piste. Off piste skiing is limited at the moment due to the warm temperatures and a lack of new snow but looking at the weather forecast, this could all be set to change.

Some of the best conditions in France can be found in Les Arcs (48/152cm). Slopes, especially at the top, are well groomed and grippy. They can be hard in places, especially with the amount of holiday traffic, but remain very good overall. Conditions were also good in Montgenevre (150/260cm) where slopes were wel-groomed. They were packed and grippy in the morning but softened up throughout the day.

The snow line has been visibly receding in the Chamonix (20/200cm) area recently. Strong sunshine today means that slopes lower day are softening up fast. Up high, however, slopes can be hard packed but are still ultimately very enjoyable.

There were early spring conditions in Morzine (30/50cm) and the rest of the Portes du Soleil today. When the slopes begin to soften up, head to Avoriaz (80/110cm) for the best snow.

With its varied terrain, links to the Portes du Soleil, its charming town centre, which is a year round attraction, Morzine has something for everyone. Easily reached by car from Calais or by plane via Geneva (less than an hour long transfer), this resort has served our family well ever since we first visited 10 years ago. Our children, having learnt to ski on its generous and forgiving nursery slopes, were then able to experience their first sense of independence, skiing the blues back to the resort. Now older, they think nothing of completing the 'tour'; Chatel, Morgins, Champousin, Les Crossets and Champery, finishing the day, and their father off, by negotiating Le Mur Suisse, a truly terrifying black, best experienced with your eyes clothed. Dining on the slopes is a constant and varied delight and apres ski can be as quiet or as lively, as cheap or as expensive as you like. Although some might pick holes in aspects of the lift links or the absence of more extreme skiing, it is the ideal place for a mixed ability group.
