So far, this season has been an interesting one in regards to snowfall. We’ve had no snow, lots of snow, early warm weather, and lots of ups and downs throughout the winter season. As of now, snow has been falling in the Alps all day. Tomorrow just might be an amazing sunny day with all of this fresh snow to enjoy! And from there, we’ll be getting more and more snow over next week.

Snow Report in the Alps

Courchevel

The snow conditions in Courchevel are fantastic, we have had a few wet days recently but nothing to cry about because the snow pack is so deep and loads more snow is due on the horizon! Over the weekend we have another foot of snow due and looks to be dropping again in temperature. I personally can’t wait to get out there for fresh powder and have some fun between the trees. One of the best pistes for me at the moment is Bel Air, it’s a gradual red with rollers and exciting inclines that all can enjoy… Especially when it’s been groomed, make sure you don’t miss out and wake up early for this one!!

Snow depth at the top: 195cm
Snow depth at the base: 139cm
Snowfall due in the next few days: 16cm

La Tania

It is snowing in La Tania as we write this! La Tania is boasting lots of snow currently, with more forecast for over the weekend. The runs are well covered and grippy. The off piste is a bit chopped up currently but this will change to powder with the current and forecasted snow. Avalanche risk is 4 so stay safe and don’t go off piste without the knowledge and equipment. Happy sliding!

Meribel

After a snowfall of 20cm in recent days and with more forecast over the next week, snow conditions are looking great at the moment. Low lying cloud is restricting visibility so head to the trees around Loze and altiport  to add some contrast to your skiing. Temperatures are hovering around the freezing level in resort and only a couple of degrees below further up the hill so no need to layer up too much. Be sure to keep an eye on the Meribel webcams so make the most of pockets of clear weather higher up the hill.

Snow depth at the top: 185cm
Snow depth at the base: 94cm
Snowfall due in the next few days: 15cm
Open pistes: 60/63

Morzine

While it has been raining down here in Morzine town, the slopes have been getting a dusting of fresh snow. Over in Avoriaz, the slopes now have grippy light snow. The ‘Tannes’ run is lovely and quiet in the Lindarets bowl. If you are looking for an adventure, the runs over to Switzerland have brilliant snow at the moment. In Morzine, the slopes lower down are not coping so well with the rain, but the pistes higher up are awesome. The run from the top of Belvedere to the Folliets du Golf is a nice blue through the trees with fantastic snow.   The Les Gets bowl and Mont Cherry are my top picks  Mont Cherry for the more advanced and Les Gets offers something for everyone!The forecast is predicting snow and blue skies for next week – the best combination!!

Snow depth at the top: 140cm
Snow depth at the base: 40cm
Snowfall due in the next few days: 25cm

Tignes

It’s been a mixed bag of weather this week in Tignes with everything from sun to snow, fog, high temperatures and low temperatures. Some south facing slopes were almost spring like on Monday due to the sun and warmth but yesterday saw a return of winter and more snow. The temperatures dropped and we’ve had about 20cm of fresh snow over the last 24 hours. With temperatures continuing to fall and with lots of snow due towards the weekend it’s looking like it could be a great end to February!

Val d’Isere

There is a springtime feeling in the air already here in Val d’Isere. We seem to have alternating days between bluebird and whiteouts. The snow under-ski is great; the slopes keep getting a healthy top up and as such all pistes and off piste remain fun. On the sunnier days the lower runs start to get a little slushy by the end of the day. Merles and cyclamen over in Tignes are great at the moment as are Creux and the Hidden Valley.

Snow depth at the top: 270cm
Snow depth at the base: 145cm
Snowfall due in the next few days: 21cm
Open pistes: 73/76
