We’ve enjoyed another sunny and warm week here in the Alps this March. With only a few cloudy days here and there, lots and lots of sun tanning has been happening. Surprisingly though, we have a bit more forecasted to come in tomorrow and possibly next week. Not a ton of snow by any means, but we’re happy with a dusting! Find out exactly what’s happening in your resort below.

Snow Report in the Alps

La Tania

Bluebird days are here! Dustings of snowfall during the night and cold temperatures have kept the pistes is great condition. Blue skies forecast to continue with some snowfall forecast for tomorrow. Foyleres the home run into la Tania is fantastic to ski at the moment.

Les Arcs

Les Arcs is enjoying fantastic conditions with a healthy metre of snow on lower slopes and nearly 3 metres at the top. Piste conditions are superb, with all areas well and truly open including the incredible, 2000m drop, Aiguille Rouge run all the way down to Villaroger. Snow coverage off piste is great and there’s never been a better and safer time to enjoy the major off piste epics like the North Face of the Bellecote. For anyone coming out to Les Arcs in the next few weeks you can be assured of a very snowsure finale to the season.

Meribel

Spring has sprung! The sun is shining and the goggle tans are looking good. While a few brown patches are appearing further down the valley, all slopes in resort are open and beautifully groomed. Aim for first lifts to make the most of the corduroy pistes. If you’re a fan of the slush there is plenty to play in on the runs down to the Chaudanne after lunchtime and all the parks are in mint condition. Head to the DC park in Motteret or the Moon Park at the top of Plan de l’homme to try your best moves.

Snow depth at the top: 190cm
Snow depth at the base: 76cm
Snowfall expected in the next few days: 6cm
Open pistes: 60/63

Morzine

The snow in Morzine is fantastic this week, with firm, grippy snow in the morning which gets softer during the day. Get out early and make the most of the beautiful sunny days and quiet pistes. Our favourite areas at the moment are directly around the Pleney lift in Morzine – in particular pistes B and D for cruisey blues and piste H for a challenging red. Mont Chery was another great spot today – empty pistes, soft groomed snow and blue skies!

Snow depth at the top: 260cm
Snow depth at the base: 30cm
Snowfall expected in the next few days: 13cm
Open pistes: 115/117

Tignes

Conditions are still great in resort with pistes firm in the mornings, softening up throughout the day and springlike in the afternoons. Despite the warmer temperatures the snow isn’t getting too slushy so we’ve not hit the end yet! It can get bumpy, however, towards the end of the day so save some energy for your last run back into Tignes. For the best conditions head up to the Grande Motte Glacier to get a true taste of winter. For those looking for a more cruisy experience the slopes around Grand Pre (between Tignes and Val) are also still in tip top condition. Some snow reports are forecasting more snow at the end of the week, if it stays true the season’s far from over yet!

Snow depth at the top: 238cm
Snow depth at the base: 143cm
Snowfall expected in the next few days: 7cm
Open pistes: 76/77

Val d’Isere

The sun keeps shining and the bluebird days are here to stay. The goggle tans are looking strong, t shirts have been spied on the slopes and the pistes are still in great shape. The hot days do mean that slush is starting to appear, especially on the lower slopes. Hence it is more crucial than ever to get that first lift to sneak in the best runs before the crowds hit them. The two glaciers are still in great nick; Cascades, Moraine and Glacier runs are ones to seek out. With the slush it is a perfect time to practise moguls, so head to Sache, Epilobe or Foret if thats what you fancy.

Snow depth at the top: 238cm
Snow depth at the base: 143cm
Snowfall expected in the next few days: 5cm
Open pistes: 76/76

Verbier

It’s warm and sunny in Verbier town but up on the mountains the snow is still great.  The pistes by Lac des Vaux and Attelas are very good this week.  Today’s photo is of one of Verbier’s famous official off-piste runs.  It goes from the cold top of  Mont Gele, down into warm, sunny La Chaux, with superb views.  This itinerary didn’t open last winter, due to lack of snow but as you can see there’s plenty this year so come and join us!

Snow depth at the top: 230cm
Snow depth at the base: 30cm
Snowfall expected in the next few days: 11cm

Spring skiing is definitely here! Scoot out to the Alps for a last minute getaway – or before you know it you’ll be waiting for December to put those planks on again.

We hope you’ve found our Snow Reports valuable this season. We are signing off on our snow reports until it starts falling again next season. Don’t fret – we’ll let you know when the first flake falls!

See you out there!
