Snow overview for France
Thursday 23 February 2017

Thursday 23rd of February was yet another sunny day in France. The general story is of hard packed slopes up high and where the most traffic is but soft, spring like conditions on resort runs. Overall, conditions are very variable on piste. Off piste skiing is limited at the moment due to the warm temperatures and a lack of new snow but looking at the weather forecast, this could all be set to change.

Some of the best conditions in France can be found in Les Arcs (48/152cm). Slopes, especially at the top, are well groomed and grippy. They can be hard in places, especially with the amount of holiday traffic, but remain very good overall. Conditions were also good in Montgenevre (150/260cm) where slopes were wel-groomed. They were packed and grippy in the morning but softened up throughout the day.

The snow line has been visibly receding in the Chamonix (20/200cm) area recently. Strong sunshine today means that slopes lower day are softening up fast. Up high, however, slopes can be hard packed but are still ultimately very enjoyable.

There were early spring conditions in Morzine (30/50cm) and the rest of the Portes du Soleil today. When the slopes begin to soften up, head to Avoriaz (80/110cm) for the best snow.

Terrific week following fresh snowfall. Our instructor Steven Groen and our Ski Club leader Kate Rowe could not have done more. We covered most of the Val d'Isere and Tignes resorts - La Grande Motte was breath taking - helped no doubt by blue skies, sunshine and minus 22 degrees! Great fun all round - The Lodge was perfect with keen staff on hand to make sure our glasses were rarely empty!
