Snow overview for France
Thursday 30 March 2017

After a really good spell of fresh snow for a number of resorts over the weekend, Thursday 30th of March saw a return to spring conditions. Slopes are starting to suffer in many places, especially at lower altitude, and it is really feeling like the end of the season now.

Lower slopes in Alpe d’Huez (100/200cm) are looking a bit worn to say the least, so it’s definitely worth staying up high for the best snow. As the sun melts the snow, it may be best to call it a day early and enjoy a drink on the terrace – slushy slopes will be the order of the afternoon. Lower slopes were suffering in a number of resorts, but none more so than the aptly name Portes du Soleil, where the sun was shining. Slopes down to Chatel (10/60cm), Les Gets (10/85cm) and Morzine (40/100cm) were on life support and groomers are doing a great job keeping them open. Conditions on the upper slopes are still very fun; it just might take you longer than usual to get to the good snow.

There were some excellent conditions still to be enjoyed in Flaine (42/265cm), where the best skiing was mid-morning, when slopes had been softened somewhat but were not too soft. This is not an exception, and if you like firmer slopes then these can be found in a number of resorts if you get up early enough.

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!).
