Snow Report in the Alps

After nearly two weeks of sunshine, snow has returned to the Alps! The pistes were definitely in need of a dusting and today was great skiing – on and off piste. Snow is forecasted to come in later in the weekend and then start dumping again next week. Read a local report from your resort below.

Heavy snow falling down to resort level in Meribel tops up the sprinkling we received earlier this week and takes the icy edge off lower slopes. With sun forecast later this week followed by more snow at the weekend, winter seems to be right back on track.

Snow coming into Meribel


After a recent dump of snow on Wednesday, the pistes are looking a little less brown in Morzine! Stay high to avoid icy patches. The Les Gets bowl is as ever a good option for intermediate and advanced skiers – there are nice spots next to the pistes and through the trees with fresh snow. Head over to Mont Cherry to make the most of the fresh snow as it is much quieter and less tracked. The lindarets bowl in Avoriaz has excellent blue pistes, especially the pistes coming from the Prolays chair. With more snow forecast at the weekend, its set to be a very good few days!

Snow depth at the top: 180cm
Snow depth at the base: 30cm
Snowfall due in the next few days: 25cm

Like many places across the Alps a rise in temperature has led to some interesting conditions over the last couple of days. Luckily being a higher resort than most it’s only really affected the lower pistes with great conditions still to be enjoyed, especially on the Glacier. Temperatures are set to plummet to -25 with wind chill todayand another 20cm or so of snow is due to fall. It’s looking like conditions are set to pick up again just in time for half term!

Snow depth at the top: 118cm

Snowfall due in the next few days: 19cm

Tinges meeting point after the snowfall. More on the way!

Val d’Isere

The glorious January sun continues to shine but this had meant any off piste was crusty and well tracked out. However over 30cm of snow fell on Saturday night meaning fresh tracks. It also meant carnage on the pistes as they were mogul fields before lunchtime. However now they have been groomed to perfection and are great fun, escpecially for carving afficionados. The runs round Solaise are particularly good fun as are Creux and Arcelle. Lets hope those pesky clouds stay away.
