Snow overview for France
Thursday 11 February 2016

This week has seen a good amount of snowfall across our featured French resorts. Of the resorts we feature around the world, French resorts fill 42 of the top 100 slots for fresh snow totals over the last seven days, eight of which are in the top ten.

The heaviest snowfall recently has landed in the resorts along the Chamonix valley, and in particular at Argentiere (40/250cm) where over two metres if snow has landed in the last seven days. The base depth at Lognan, often referred to as the lower skiing area at Argentiere, was 193cm on Thursday 11th February.

The conditions around Chamonix (40/360cm), as across France, should continue to improve with all of our featured French resorts forecast further snowfall over the next nine days. The greatest amount of new snow is expected to land in the Espace Killy ski area and in particular at Val d’Isere (134/235cm). La Grave (60/110cm) and Bonneval sur Arc (110/230cm) are also looking good. All three of these resorts could receive in excess of two metres of new snow over the next nine days. Even though the forecast for these three resorts is excellent, they are not alone. All of our featured French resort should get new snow, from 35cm over the same period at Font Romeu (35cm) up to over a metre of fresh at resorts further north, as well as in other resorts in the Pyrenees.

January trip to Samoens
Overall rating: 4 stars

Visited: January 2016

First visit to Samoens at end of January. No snow in village but good skiing on Samoens slopes and over to Morillon and Les Carroz. Very mild so a bit slushy at the bottom but upper slopes good. Wind closed lifts at times and ice closed Flaine lifts. Good blues and reds for us and lessons with Zig Zag were excellent. Stayed in apartment in pretty Samoens, walk to GME lift and ski hire at Extreme Glisses near lift.
Especially liked Sairon run to Morillon and Portet to Les Molliets. Reds down to Samoens 1600 were wider and better snow than the blues. Used Go Massif from Geneva for transfer and all very easy. Lots more to discover next time.
