Snow overview for France
Monday 30 March 2015

The weekend saw precipitation return to the majority of French resorts. Unfortunately this fell as rain at many locations, then the drop in temperature during the night on Sunday turned the rain to snow, providing some fantastic powder skiing conditions on Monday morning, 30th March. Rain did fall at some lower locations though, with slopes below about 1,500m worst affected.

The deepest snowfall was reported at the highest part of the Chamonix valley skiing area (0/222cm). Here a metre of fresh snow was reported up on Aiguille du Midi, with around half that amount 600m lower on the Grands Montets skiing area.

Val Thorens (145/240cm), the highest ski base in the Three Valleys, reported 50cm of new snow on Monday morning, although Courchevel (79/146m) did not report any new snow.

Lift operations in the Espace Killy were limited on Monday morning. You could not ski up on the glacier at Tignes (115/185cm) and many other high lifts were also closed due to the severe weather and heavy snowfall. At Val d’Isere (115/185cm) it was a similar situation with only 50% of the lifts operating on Monday morning. This meant that the slopes were relatively busy across the Espace Killy due to the increased visitors this week for the Easter break and the limited amount of terrain that was open. This was not too much of an issue though as the snow was fantastic. The British Universities Snowsports Council (BUSC) Main Event takes place in Tignes this week too, with over one and a half thousand students.

The Northern Alps will have cloudy weather for most of this week, with light snowfall expected on most days. The Southern Alps and Pyrenees should remain a lot brighter although these resorts will not benefit from the fresh snowfall seen further north.

Went to Valfrejus in March 2009. Not a massive amount of piste, could do them all in a couple of days, runs not very well groomed. Ideal for Val Thorens though (superb!).
