Snow overview for France
Thursday 29 January 2015

Thursday morning dawned snowy for most of our featured French resorts. The only places to miss out were the southern Alps (resorts such as Isola 2000) and the Pyrenees (resorts such as Font Romeu). Be careful out there as the avalanche danger is very high.

Some resorts also caught snow earlier in the week, with Flaine (100/180cm) and Samoens (45/78cm) catching 20cm on Tuesday. A further 20cm was recorded on the morning of Thursday 29th January, so powder conditions are to be found across the Grand Massif.

The snowiest spot on Thursday morning was the Chamonix Valley (40/140cm), where 40cm of fresh snow was recorded on the upper slopes. Even down at 1035m in the valley, 20cm of fresh snow was picked up. Be careful when skiing in this region however as the avalanche risk is currently very high. Another area to benefit significantly is the Portes du Soleil, with Avoriaz (120/170cm) seeing 30cm of fresh snow overnight. The even better news is that the snow is that the snow was continuing to fall throughout the day on Thursday.

The heavy snow is expected to continue throughout the weekend, with several pulses of heavy precipitation forecast to cross the French Alps, hopefully bringing up to a metre of fresh snow for many. The next clear spell is forecast for Monday, although it is likely to be short-lived as the snow is set to return again on Tuesday.

Both Cauterets (100/170cm) and Font Romeu (55/75cm) in the Pyrenees dawned dry on Thursday, but very heavy snow is expected to begin through the afternoon. By the end of the weekend a metre of new snow is possible, so some excellent skiing should be on offer over the coming days.

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.
