Snow overview for France
Monday 24 April 2017

Sunny weather continued to dominate the skies for the remainder of open resorts on Monday 24th April.

In the Tarentaise region, Val Thorens (90/140cm), Tignes (33/145cm) and Val d’Isere (35/145cm) still have a good amount of lifts spinning, and the skiing is surprisingly good for the time of year.

Futher south, Les Deux Alpes (0/200cm) continues of offer some nicely groomed pistes on the glacier, but nearby its sister resort, Alpe d’Huez has now closed.

From Tuesday 25th onwards, the forecast is predicting fairly heavy snow for many resorts. Chamonix (0/180cm) could receive up to 70cm by the end of the week.

Plenty of skiing - but not well connected to Tignes
Overall rating: 4 stars

Visited: March 2017

The Espace Killy Ski Area is named after French Olympic champion downhill skier Jean-Claude Killy. Val d'Isère is located in a steep valley and it is these steep slopes that have attracted the hard core skiers since the resort opened for downhill skiing in the mid 1930's. I am an intermediate skier who has skied at Tignes before so found plenty of good blue/red runs for 6 days skiing albeit there is no easy way to ski from La Daille (Bellevarde) into Val d'Isere only an un-pisted Blue Santons or Black runs - experienced skiers in our group thought the Black easier than Santons! Skiing towards Tignes is straight forward in either direction and would be better for beginners. I found the Ski Bus offered the best and fastest way to access the Val d'Isere side of the Espace Killy so you can get the Ski Bus to Le Fornet (or Le Laisinant) first thing and spend the rest of the day skiing back using the Olympique Cable Car to return to Bellevarde and thence La Daille. There are a couple of flat spots in the resort where you may have to take skis off or pole along. Also the snow on lower areas like Tignes 1550 (Les Brévières) gets slushy in the afternoon so best do these in the morning. I did brave the infamous La Face Black run in Val d'Isère as first run on the last day - not for the faint hearted. Amongst our group the favourite runs we could all manage/enjoy were Red Cascade at Le Fornet and Blue Génépy at Val Claret. Best table service lunches we had were at La Tete de Solaise and La Bouida at Tignes 1550 (great pizzas) - we were also recommended to try the Edelweiss at Le Fornet. If you get fed up of skiing you could try a microlight flight 12 minutes is €80 or 18 minutes €100 - on a sunny day the views would be amazing!
