Snow overview for France
Monday 05 December 2016

France enjoyed a beautiful day on the 5th of December with many resorts open for skiing. Of all our featured resorts, Isola 2000 (30/130cm) is looking the best at the moment. They’ve had a great year for snow so far, and to cap off a great start to the winter, home boy Matthieu Faivre won his first FIS world cup race over the weekend with a stunning victory in Val d’Isere. Montgenevre (70/180cm) was also looking in fantastic condition, especially considering the time of year. Cauterets (16/36cm) enjoyed a beautiful day on Monday, and though the snow cover is sparse and often artificial, to have skiing at this time of year is a massive achievement. A few more resorts opened over the weekend, like Serre Chevalier. Chatel, however, has pushed back its pre-season to next week due to lack of snow. There was some decent early season skiing in Font Romeu (20/30cm), where groomers have done a great job making 15 slopes available this early on in the season.

(Nearly) As Good as it gets?
Overall rating: 4 stars

Visited: January 2016

Very good snow, blue skies and sunshine. Le Nevada accommodation / spa excellent. Touches of "Fast Food" in Val Claret - otherwise pretty good + convenient to lifts & slopes.

Tips: Bus service very good. Check out the public lifts for boot comfortable transfer between levels in resort.

But ... Chambery Airport on a Saturday is a bottleneck / nightmare - despite best endeavors of airport staff etc. Grumpy Pilots. Be Prepared!
