Snow overview for France
Monday 22 December 2014

Almost all of our featured French ski resorts are now open for snowsports. The lack of early season snowfall means that low down the cover at many resorts is not as good as it normally is at this time of year but higher up the skiing is good at the moment. Monday 22nd January was sunny across the French resorts in the Alps and Pyrenees, and it was milder than we would typically expect at this time of year.

Despite the inclemently mild weather there are reports of good skiing in France at the moment. On Sunday 21st December, the Ski Club Leader in Meribel reported some nice skiing on the upper slopes and that there was plenty of good skiing around the Three Valleys, with most of the lifts open.

If you are looking for where the best snow is then there is good cover in the Pyrenees and Southern Alps, and above 2,500m in the Alps the conditions are very good. Below 2,000m the snow cover is thin, with some patchy cover in some locations.

The forecast is for a significant drop in freezing level, which is great news. Days of sunshine are expected this week although Christmas Day could be cloudy with a chance of some light snowfall. The greatest snowfall is forecast for the weekend and this should deliver a good amount of fresh snow. The majority of our featured French resorts could receive over 30cm of fresh before the end of December which is excellent news, especially for anyone heading out to France over the New Year period.

Skiworlds freebie for group leaders in Val d'isere stain at their Lodge.

Accommodation basic but clean. SW staff as usual are second to none and the food was spot on once again.

The Lodge has its own bar which is great for the evening get together or if you want to sit quietly there are plenty of other areas for this too.

The best boot room ever

The slopes are a short bust ride away in both directions, or a ten minute walk if you go to the main centre.

Snow was not the best low down but plenty of nice runs at le Fornet and the Grand motte.

Overall a great couple of days, however one major injury to the party being a broken leg.

Fresh snow falling all last night and throughout the day but sadly too late for us to make use of it!
