Snow overview for France
Thursday 26 February 2015

The skiing is excellent across the French Alps at present and with sunny skies firmly in place on Thursday 26th February, the overhead conditions were perfect too.

Great skiing has been reported by Ski Club Ambassadors in the Espace Killy ski region, encompassing the resorts of Val d’Isere (95/167cm) and Tignes (90/163cm). Some great powder turns were on offer off the pistes and the perfectly groomed powder on piste was providing some amazing turns on the groomers.

Conditions were also fantastic in the Portes du Soleil, with Avoriaz (180/290cm) and Morzine (70/195cm) offering great slopes and all lifts in their respective areas open.

Across in the Pyrenees the heavy snow has not stopped falling all week, with huge snowfall totals of almost two metres being reported across the mountain range. Cauterets (340/470cm) boasts a huge base depth as a result but was shut due to avalanche concerns on Thursday 26th February. Bareges/La Mongie (220/320cm) was only able to run seven lifts as the avalanche danger hit Level 5 across the mountain range. The treacherous conditions are set to remain over the weekend as mild air comes into the Pyrenees, destabilising the significant new snow drifts. Off piste skiing is not recommended and lift openings may be affected for some days.

Fortunately the snow is set to taper off in the Pyrenees but it is set to resume in the Alps this weekend. Around 40-100cm of new snow forecast between now and Tuesday next week for much of the French Alps so some good powder should be on offer next. As with the Pyrenees however pay close attention to the latest avalanche forecasts and stay safe off piste.

Morzine has it all!
Overall rating: 5 stars

Morzine in the Portes du Soleil has it all from short transfer times after a short 1hour 20 flight (transfer from geneva - Morzine with Mountain Mavericks Skiidy Transfers only took 1.10mins from airport door to chalet door) and we were on the slope by midday.

I had skis but others had skis and equipment waiting through doorstep skis. All great equipment. The runs were great, the snow pack was nice and the groomed runs were high quality even after a poor snowfall base to the start of the season.

Our chalet stay was great. Mountain Mavericks food was amazing and the service was more than we expected. I thoroughly recommend their chalets www.mountainmavericks.com/chalets/
