Snow overview for France
Thursday 17 April 2014

The fine sunny weather which blessed the French resorts on Monday 14th April has lasted all week. This has reduced base depths in some locations and the snow does soften quite quickly, with the freezing level hovering around the 2,500m mark or just above it. Clouds could move in as we move into the Easter weekend, but the good news is that the freezing level is expected to drop to around 2,000m on Saturday 19th April which could result in fresh snowfall.

As you might expect for this time of year it is best to stick to the highest slopes if you prefer the conditions to be less sun affected, especially the sheltered and higher north facing slopes.

The Pyrenean resorts of Cauterets (260/360cm) and Bareges/La Mongie (65/270cm) offer some superb skiing at the moment due to the deep snow bases on the upper slopes.

Further north in the Alps there is also excellent skiing available. The classics for late season, such as Tignes (40/190cm), Val d’Isere (40/128cm) and Val Thorens (85/190cm), offer fantastic spring skiing due to their high elevations. The upper slopes at La Plagne (5/200cm) are also in very good shape.  In the Southern Alps, Isola 2000 (95/270cm) has an impressive base depth on the higher slopes at the moment of over two and a half metres, providing lovely riding conditions.

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!
