Snow overview for France

25 February 2020

With a north-westerly air current, the French Alps were the first to see the snow arrive on Tuesday. After a bright morning, this made for a significant change in conditions after a very mild and sunny weekend.

Lower slopes were really suffering by the end of the weekend, thanks to a combination of the high temperatures and busy half term traffic. Resort runs at the likes of Chatel, Morzine and La Clusaz were strips of snow surrounded by brown fields by Monday.

Further up, some good wintry snow conditions could be found, but only on the very highest north-facing slopes at the likes of Tignes, Les Deux Alps and Val Thorens. Even here, no off piste was available over the weekend, but this looks set to change.

Lots of snow is forecast for the French Alps over the coming days, with the Tarentaise (resorts such as La Plagne, Tignes and Les Arcs) set to be the focus of the heaviest snow. More than 100cm is expected in places by the time the week is over, with more possible next week too. This looks set to transform the skiing, but beware of the avalanche danger which is set to rise considerably over the coming days.
