Snow overview for France
Thursday 18 December 2014

Unfortunately rain was falling across much of France on Thursday 18th December. This followed some good snowfalls of up to 20cm on Wednesday, which below approximately 2,000-2,500m will have been affected by the rainfall. That being said, upper slopes will make good gains from this snowstorm, so hopefully more terrain up high should open for the coming weekend.

The best conditions again remain at altitude, with glacier resorts seeing the most snowfall but more importantly snow on Thursday rather than rain. Tignes (25/40cm) saw 20cm up on the Grande Motte glacier and over the links across to Val d’Isere (10/40cm). Val Thorens (60/100cm) continues its excellent start to the season, reporting 20cm of fresh snow and owing to its high altitude it was still snowing on Thursday.

Elsewhere, the situation is not looking as good. In the lower resorts, such as those in the Portes du Soleil the rain has been a big set back. The upper slopes should hold on to Wednesday’s snowfall, but the latest webcam images on Thursday suggest that at resort level much of this is already melting.

As many resorts are due to open this weekend, keep an eye on resort websites for the latest opening information following Thursday’’s rainfall.

Little snow but good slopes and freerides
Overall rating: 4 stars

Visited: December 2014

Every eary December we are going to french Alpes, alterning between Tignes and Les Deux Alpes. My favourite is Tignes.
This year there was only 10 slopes opened all at the glaciar, and many people up there. Despite of this the snow was good and there are plenty of free rides!
