Snow overview for France
Monday 08 February 2016

The skiing conditions across the French resorts were generally very good on Monday 8th February and all of the resorts we feature in France, except Font Romeu (35cm), report fresh snowfall in February. The majority of resorts received snowfall over the weekend too, adding to the snow that fell last week. Monday brought a mixture of sun and cloud, with a chance of further snowfall in the evening.

The stand-out resort on Monday for snowfall was Serre Chevalier (25/130cm), which reported 50cm of new snow landing on the upper slopes on Sunday 7th February.

Chamonix (30/360cm) is still at the top of the chart in France for base depth, with over three metres of snow on the upper mountain, but this is on the Aiguille du Midi, which is not a typical skiing area. Morillon (10/245cm) and Flaine (10/245cm) in the Grand Massif ski area sit in joint second place with just under two and half metres of snow measured on their upper ski slopes.

Cloudy weather is forecast to dominate for most of this week and into next week, with further fresh snowfall expected at all of our featured French skiing locations. Again the Chamonix valley is set to get a lot of new snow, although La Grave (60/100cm) is close to the top of the table too. At La Grave, over two and a half metres of new snow forecast at mid-mountain level by the end of Tuesday 16th February, with the heaviest snow landing over next weekend.

Great skiing with the club
Overall rating: 5 stars

Visited: January 2016

I spent the last week of January in Val d'Isere, staying in a Mark Warner chalet. I have stayed in Tignes before but was more than happy with this chalet, being right in the middle of the resort and therefore very handy for the lifts. The weather was good and the snow was good, if a bit hard, so the only thing wanting was good company and that was provided by the Ski Club.I had two days with the instructor, Nico, which I thoroughly enjoyed, and also joined the social skiing with the club. If possible, this was even better; the local members were very welcoming and I would be more than happy to go back there. A leg injury to one of the members put a dampener on the final day and I hope she makes a quick recovery.

The whole resort is really lovely, they have upgraded some of the facilities, and you can ski from one end to the other within a day. I have one recommendation for anybody, who does not yet have a helmet. It is to buy one. I invested in one a few years ago and this year, was very glad of it when I took a tumble; it's better to think about safety before you really need it. I was really surprised to see that so many of the instructors don't wear one but Nico does.
