Snow overview for France
Thursday 20 November 2014

The fantastic amount of fresh snow recently has allowed resorts to work on the slopes and a number of resorts will open this weekend.

It is already possible to ski at Tignes (15/70cm), with excellent early season riding up on the Grande Motte glacier.

Val Thorens (30/60cm) will open for their full winter season this Saturday 22nd November and with 20cm of fresh snow falling into 18th November the riding will be excellent this opening day.

La Clusaz (0/100cm) will open for skiing on the Balme area for Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd November, with reportedly the best conditions high up at this time of year for 15 years.

Alpe d’Huez (10/150cm) will also open for skiing this weekend, along with parts of the Montgenevre skiing area (10/30cm) on the French side of the Milky Way ski domain.

Serre Chevalier plans to open for weekend skiing on 29th and 30th November, as a season pre-opener. They are saying this is the first time they’ve opened for a pre-opener in November.

Chatel plans to open for weekend skiing in the Pre-la-Joux area from 29th until they open daily on 13th December. Font Romeu, Les Deux Alpes and Val d’Isere all plan to offer skiing on 29th November, along with Bareges/La Mongie and Cauterets in the Pyrenees.

The forecast across the French resorts is for the bright weather of Thursday 20th to continue into Friday before clouds build, with a chance of rain and snow towards the end of the weekend.

Cracking resort!
Overall rating: 5 stars

I love the Espace Killy ski area and have skied it quite a lot, however, this time was the 1st time making use of the SCGB Leader service. I was in Tignes for 2 weeks and skied with 3 Leaders over the course of my stay and they each took me to areas I had not skied before and thanks to their in depth knowledge of the resort we had some great skiing despite challenging conditions. Thanks to David Morgan, Gary Hickman and Gerry Aitken for a cracking time! Even with my good knowledge of the resort I would not have had such good skiing as I did with those guys, their knowledge of the resort and not forgetting the other members!

Tignes has something for everyone, although beginners may struggle a little. The ski area is vast, especially when you take advantage of the wider Espace Killy. It's high altitude means there is always good snow to be found even when nearby resorts may be suffering and if you take advantage of the Leaders service you'll be taken to the best of the best.

The lift system is very good and due to the multiple lifts out of resort you can always get up and skiing quickly and easily.

The free bus service around the resort is superb and gives easy access betwen the main areas of Val Claret, Le Lac and Lavache til late at night. There is a wide range of bars and restaurants so off the piste the "something for everyone" theme continues.

I've stayed in Val D'Isere mainly before but think it will be Tjgnes for me in the future.

This time we stayed in a very basic apartment by private arranegment so I have opted not to rate accommodation as we opted for basic and that is what we got. Tignes has a wide range of accomodation available to suit most budgets
