Snow overview for France
Thursday 26 March 2015

Thursday 26th March was a mostly cloudy day across the French Alps, with the best chance of brightness for the southern resorts. Elsewhere some light snow fell overnight, with the most being on the upper slopes as the milder air led to a wintry mix falling lower down.

For the best sunny skies on Thursday, the southern Alps and resorts such as Isola 2000 (125/175cm) and Foux d’Allos (46/157cm) provided the best bet. Some new snow was recorded here earlier this week, leading to some good ski conditions across the mountain. Expect some slushier conditions lower down and the odd bare patch as the recent warm weather has reduced the snow depth somewhat.

Thick clouds were covering the Portes du Soleil on Thursday, with resorts such as Avoriaz (120/270cm), Chatel (65/165cm) and Morzine (25/110cm) remaining socked in. Some light dustings of snow were recorded at these resorts, but the tricky visibility led to some difficult skiing conditions.

Resorts with the very highest slopes were fortunate to see sunshine, but only above around 2,800m. For example, the Pic Blanc above Alpe d’Huez (78/170cm) was bathed in sunshine, as was the Roche de Mio above La Plagne (15/155cm).

Sunnier skies are forecast for Friday, but don’t expect brilliant blue skies as the clouds are not far away. These are set to return on Saturday and are set to bring 15-40cm of snow on Sunday with a freezing level of around 1,800m.

Tignes off piste progression
Overall rating: 3 stars
Lloyd Dawes
Visited: January 2015

Just finished one week with the Ski Club on the off piste progression course, staying in the Mark Warner chalet hotel L'Aiguille. Challenging skiing but Pascal our excellent mountain guide made the very best of the conditions available. Thee hotel rooms were basic but comfortable with great beds. Shame high temperatures during the night meant we had to leave the external door open. The food was of variable quality and most definitely not enough after a hard days skiing. The wines were frankly appalling with only two being barely drinkable. Come on Mark Warner - you can get a decent Apellation Controllee bottle of wine for under EUR1.5 from the local supermarket.
