Snow overview for France
Thursday 05 May 2016

This is the last week of Tignes’ winter season and with base depths of 50-150cm there is still great skiing to enjoy, enhanced by the snow that has fallen over the last week. 45cm of fresh snow has been reported this week at Tignes on the Grande Motte glacier and the skiing up there on Thursday 5th May was excellent. You could still ski back down to resort level too.

Val d’Isere and Les Deux Alpes are currently closed for snowsports.

(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!
