Snow overview for France
Monday 27 April 2015

Most French resorts are now closed for the season, but there is limited skiing available at some of the highest resorts right through into May. The weather on Monday 27th April was changeable, with heavy snow forecast to arrive during the night – dropping as much as 30cm of fresh snow above 2,000m. A further 15cm is possible on Wednesday.

The Grand Montets area remains open above Argentiere/Chamonix (0/175cm), as does access to the Aiguille du Midi. The upper slopes received a good 20cm top up on Sunday and are expecting 30cm more in the coming days.

Val Thorens (85/200cm) is set to remain open for another week and was running 28 of its 31 lifts on Monday. Good skiing was on offer across the area and with new snow forecast, some late April powder days are possible.

The Espace Killy is offering some good skiing, particularly on the very highest slopes of the Grande Motte and the Pisaillas areas. It remains possible to ski back into both Tignes (30/135cm) and Val d’Isere (30/135cm) and the link between the two is still open.

All of our other featured French resorts are now closed for the season.

Visited: March 2015

2 weeks have passed since my ski holiday in Val and I am still missing the company and conditions during the first 3 weeks of March. Although we have Ambassadors instead of leaders as a lone skier I had company to ski every day.
15-25 ski club members would turn up at the meeting place and the seasonaires would organise a day out but under the very discreet direction of the Ski Club Ambassador who for much of the time was Paul Mongan. Paul was great to ski with as he took account of the different abilities and was great company, especially with his huge resources of puns and jokes. I laughed a lot on this ski trip.
There did not seem any diminishing of the role of ski leaders, most planning seemed to take place at the Alex bar with key members such as Mike and Nicky Crompton with details arranged in the morning with the seasonaires and plain clothed Ski Club Ambassadors. In fact I have acquired about 20 new friends who have been most welcoming and indeed very good company!
