Snow overview for France
Thursday 24 April 2014

This is the last week of winter operations for a number of resorts across France, including some of the larger ski areas.

Meribel (10/65cm) and Courchevel (46/122cm) in the Three Valleys ski area are both scheduled to close for skiing on Friday 25th April, along with Les Saisies (26/102cm). The Paradiski area, which includes Les Arcs (26/160cm) and La Plagne (0/215cm), closes for the season on Saturday 26th April, as does Montgenevre (50/70cm). Isola 2000 (55/265cm), Risoul (20/60cm), Vars (20/60cm) and Cauterets (150/250cm) should all then close on Sunday 27th.

The state of skiing at the open resorts is good at the moment, with the best snow conditions high up. The Grands Montets ski area at Argentiere (65/205cm) in the Chamonix area reported 10cm of new snow in time for the lifts opening Thursday 24th April at 3,275m.

Fresh snow could fall at all of the open ski resorts over the weekend, with heavy clouds forecast and a drop in freezing level to below 2,000m

Cracking resort!
Overall rating: 5 stars

Visited: March 2014

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
