Snow overview for France
Thursday 04 February 2016

The last week has seen the conditions improve once again at resorts of the Northern French Alps. There has been some snowfall on the Southern Alps and Pyrenees but the snow has not fallen as heavily as at those resorts further north.

The greatest snowfall of all of the resorts we feature across the world has been reported at Chamonix (20/320cm), where almost two and a half metres of fresh snow has fallen over the last week up on the Aiguille du Midi. The snowfall total down in the main ski area in Argentiere (20/240cm) is lower but still impressive at a metre and a half in the last seven days.

The resorts across the Northern Alps were in great shape on Thursday 4th February, as this region received the greatest amount of new snow in the recent storm. The weather was a mixture of sun and cloud. The skies were much brighter for those resorts in the Southern Alps, providing excellent visibility to enjoy the packed and groomed now on piste. Fresh snow has landed over the last week. Serre Chevalier (20/115cm) is a very popular resort in this region and here 25cm of new snow landed on 31st January.

Further snowfall is expected over the coming days too across the French resorts, in the north and south, which will top up the bases ahead of the increase to visitor numbers over the half term period.

(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!
