Courchevel

The temperatures have stayed low in Courchevel, so we’ve been bundling up but the sun has made it so lovely! The pistes are looking nice and we’ve had a bit of fresh dusting on the groomers earlier in the week. Creux piste is really nice, and all of the pistes up high near the Saulire are at their best this season! Ready for another sunny day tomorrow.

Snow depth at the top: 165cm

La Tania

This week in La Tania we’ve been starting our days with sparkly freshly groomed grippy pistes! The conditions at the end of the day are just as good as they are at the start due to the cold temperatures. At this time of year you find yourself with peaceful uncrowded slopes. Definitely worth a last minute visit!

Meribel

Snow conditions continue to impress in Meribel made even better by the reappearance of the sun. Pistes are well groomed and there is still soft, fresh snow to be found off piste. Chilly weather is keeping the snow light and fluffy but be sure to wrapped up warm.

Snow depth at the top: 175cm
Snow depth at the base: 89cm
Open pistes: 61/63

Fresh tracks in Meribel!

Morzine

The snow just keeps falling in Morzine!  Morzine, Nyon and Les Gets are providing endless runs of fresh powdery snow and quiet pistes.  The Chamossiere chair in Nyon provides two really nice runs down with fresh snow on them – a less-touched black run and a more tracked red run. The Les Gets bowl is still really nice with some of the more difficult blacks now open and the other reds and blues more groomed and ‘cruisy’. The lindarets bowl in Avoriaz is a brilliant option for good snow for blues, reds and tree runs!

Snow depth at the top: 155cm
Snow depth at the base: 75cm
Open pistes: 105/117

Tignes

We woke up yesterday to another dusting of 10cm or so of beautifully light snow! The pistes are in fantastic condition across Tignes and the Espace Killy. It has been really cold the past week (-19 one afternoon!) so we’ve been enjoying great skiing on squeaky fresh snow in amongst the hot chocolates! It’s meant to be slightly warmer this week and the sun is due to join us so it should make for some of the best conditions yet. Some areas of off-piste are still dangerous due to wind-loading so it’s still advised to hire an instructor/guide if you want to venture further afield.

Snow depth at the top: 183cm
Snow depth at the base: 102cm
Open pistes: 70/77

Val d’Isere

Winter is here. With the wind at the top of the lifts, it can get a little chilly here (-17 ˚C at the meeting point on Monday) but the snow is still fantastic. The pistes are all covered beautifully and are great fun; both the Tignes and Le Fornet glaciers are awesome. For off piste instructor Xavier has said the Hidden Valley is the best it has been in the last 6 years! Keep it coming.

Verbier

The pistes in Verbier are currently in superb condition and practically deserted. Off-piste is still quite hazardous though so stay safe! Sharpen up your edges and come and enjoy the firm pistes, covered with a sprinkling of fresh snow. The rocks and ice from December are all well buried and the conditions for carving fast, fun turns are excellent.

Snow depth at the top: 180cm
Snow depth at the base: 24cm
Snowfall due: 5cm over Friday & Saturday

It just might be the time to scoot on out to the Alps for a last minute holiday to enjoy these slopes while they’re full of snow and empty of people.
