Snow overview for France
Thursday 12 January 2017

Thursday 12th of January was a day for bated breath as we await the big dump that is arriving overnight and into Friday. A bit of fresh snow over the last few days has freshened up slopes and even provided some powder off piste (if you don’t mind scrapping a few rocks underneath) so there were some good conditions available if you were willing to brave the weather. Excellent skiing was, for instance, available in Bonneval sur Arc (45/220cm) and La Plagne (3/105cm) where fresh powder meant fresh tracks. Some of the best skiing in France, however, was not found in the Alps but in the Pyrenees. Resorts like Bareges/La Mongie (50/100cm) and Cauterets (60/80cm) have had up to 40cm recently. Let’s hope the next few days bring more of the same.

Snow sure and powder stashes.
Overall rating: 4 stars

Visited: December 2016

Snow showers were plentiful in November over Europe but sparse in december such that pistes became icy and hard pack . But, on a trip to Tignes Val Claret with snoworks.com staying at the Mark Warner Chalet Hotel L'Ecrin, our snoworks instructors , Tristan and Dave , managed to find powder stashes on the West face of the Borsat range . This accessed via a short walk from the top of the Borsat lift, and a long traverse across two couliors . More powder was accessed in the Chardonnay couloirs again via short walks . The Ecrin is a well built, Savoyarde wood chalet with three floors , the staff are friendly, and the food , not outstanding, but well cooked. The bedrooms are nicely furnished , warm ( thermostatically controlled), and clean with shower /bath ensuite. Eating out can be pizzas, mexican, indian , thai, -all are here. Apres ski is not that prominent as in Val D Isere - best to make your own at the bar with friends. As with Val D, Tignes is pricey depending on where you stay - Self catering - cheap, plenty value stores for food, lift tickets = 269 Euros for an Espace Killy pass - my tip - buy on-line before you get there on the www.tignes.net website. If you don't like the Tour ops transfers , use a cheap airline nearer to home and use www.altibus.com for the bus transfer from Geneva = 97.75 Euros return GVA - TIGNES VAL CLARET.
