Snow overview for France
Monday 14 April 2014

Excellent spring riding conditions exist across the open French resorts this week. Bright sunny weather blessed skiers on Monday 14th April, and similar weather is expected for most of this week. Clouds could move in as we move into the Easter weekend.

The deepest base depth of our featured French resorts is reported at Cauterets (310/410cm) in the Pyrenees. The skiing is very good at Cauterets and at Bareges/La Mongie (90/300cm) due to the excellent snowfall the Pyrenees has received this season.

St Gervais and Chamrousse both closed for the season over the weekend, joining Font Romeu, Foux d’Allos, Notre Dame de Bellecombe and Villard de Lans.

Superb off piste as ever
Overall rating: 5 stars
Malcolm Bentley
Visited: January 2014

I've skied in Val d'Isere and Tignes many times and keep returning. It is the resort that suits most people, most of the time more than anywhere else: mixed groups, beginners to experts, on or off piste, party people to quiet luxury.
This season we just went for the off piste, staying down the valley in Sainte Foy. A few of our best runs, and much of this you should probably do with a guide, were superb fresh tracks off the Signal poma down Grand Vallon, across the Grande Motte glacier and over the wall, which has some steep couloir, and traversing high above the Col des Ves chair beyond the Pramecou piste for a long, steep pitch of deep powder.
