Snow overview for France
Thursday 18 December 2014

Unfortunately rain was falling across much of France on Thursday 18th December. This followed some good snowfalls of up to 20cm on Wednesday, which below approximately 2,000-2,500m will have been affected by the rainfall. That being said, upper slopes will make good gains from this snowstorm, so hopefully more terrain up high should open for the coming weekend.

The best conditions again remain at altitude, with glacier resorts seeing the most snowfall but more importantly snow on Thursday rather than rain. Tignes (25/40cm) saw 20cm up on the Grande Motte glacier and over the links across to Val d’Isere (10/40cm). Val Thorens (60/100cm) continues its excellent start to the season, reporting 20cm of fresh snow and owing to its high altitude it was still snowing on Thursday.

Elsewhere, the situation is not looking as good. In the lower resorts, such as those in the Portes du Soleil the rain has been a big set back. The upper slopes should hold on to Wednesday’s snowfall, but the latest webcam images on Thursday suggest that at resort level much of this is already melting.

As many resorts are due to open this weekend, keep an eye on resort websites for the latest opening information following Thursday’’s rainfall.

What good fun
Overall rating: 5 stars

Helped that we choose what we were told was the second best week of the season!

Had a very mixed party of twelve, including one complete beginner and a couple who decided to do some snow-shoeing, and we all thoroughly loved the holiday, despite a big dump of snow during the first couple of days which made things very heavy on the pistes (but great for those of us who want to explore a bit),

The basic Pleney area is pretty crowded with ski-schoolers, as were the slopes above Les Gets, but we spent a lot of time in the Chavannes area, great reds on both sides of the valley, and had one totally uncrowded day at Mont Chery. the highlight being lunch in the top restaurant (Les Grandes Orson), excellent food and great views to Mont Blanc.

Had a couple of days in Avoriaz, found the runs much more crowded than in Morzine, but good skiing once we got over the border into Switzerland - but give the long blue into Morgines a miss unless you want a long pole! One place we wished we'd stopped for lunch was the second (very small) restaurant down the very long red (Rapaille) into Gran Paradis - the fondue being eaten in the sun looked and smelt lovely, the sort of place you dream of finding on the slopes.

We stayed in a lovely chalet (Chez Nous) but it was high up under the Super Morzine chair - luckily we were hiring skis from SkiSet in town so could keep stuff in their bootroom - if you had had to carry skis or boards back up to the chalet it would quickly have become less than fun! The lesson is check out exactly where you're staying - it can be a long steep trudge back home!

Holiday arranged through skiline.co.uk who were most helpful in sorting everything out for us.

As we were flying EasyJet we hd a mid-morning flight out, so could sort out skis etc before we started, and then had a late flight back so we could ski until 4pm on day of return - effectively an extra day's skiing as the transfer time is so quick to Geneva.

Thoroughly recommend it!
