Snow overview for France
Monday 02 March 2015

Some good new snowfall was recorded at altitude in France on Monday morning, but below around 1,800m, rain was falling. This has resulted in some heavy piste conditions, but with temperatures dropping and new snow in the forecast some of the damage will be repaired.

Around 20cm of new snow was recorded at many resorts, although only above around 2,000m owing to the mild temperatures in place across the French Alps. The Argentiere (20/220cm) and Chamonix (20/220cm) Valley was one of these places, with some good falls of powder recorded on the upper slopes. The resort runs were unfortunately not in great condition owing to the rain.

Flaine (65/230cm) also saw 20cm of new snow on the upper slopes, which is forecast to increase during the day on Monday and into the rest of the week.

The Pyrenees were experiencing even milder conditions, with temperature above freezing even on the highest slopes. As a result the pistes are soft at resorts such as Cauterets (360/500cm), but with the huge snow base, there is little worry of bare patches showing through!

The outlook is again a snowy one, with snow expected to fall until Thursday. The totals are expected to be lower than recently, but temperatures are set to drop so what does fall will be more powdery and should fall to all levels. A welcome return to sunny skies is currently set for Friday which is great news if you’re heading out this weekend.

Very well planned resort
Overall rating: 5 stars

Visited: January 2015

We stayed at a Ski-Val chalet which worked reasonably well except for the quality of the food, and the hot tub and sauna were temperamental. The resort has some lovely shops to browse in or to buy wine/cakes/provisions. The transport works brilliantly from the buses to the lifts. We skied with ski club members for 3 of the six days which was excellent. As the snow was late arriving this season, the resort runs were icy so we avoided them and skiied above 2700m as much as possible where the conditions were excellent. Unfortunately it blizzarded for the last 2 days, and as they only opened a few lifts we chose not to ski. We did have a fantastic meal at the Michelin star restaurant, L'Atelier d'Edmond (Le Fournet). It was worth every Euro! We had previously skiied in Tignes but prefer this resort as the runs are less crowded but you still have easy access to Tignes.
