Basically, it’s dumping down with white stuff.

The snow came in Wednesday evening and has not stopped since! And as we peek out the window now, it’s getting heavier by the minute and is scheduled to continue all the way through Saturday. Winds have been high up at the top, but are set to calm down by Friday afternoon. If you miss first lifts though don’t fret – there will be fresh lines to be had all weekend long. Time to scoot out here? We think so…

Snow Report in the Alps

Courchevel

The snow in the Three Balleys is brilliant at the moment. To wake up every morning to groomed pistes and flurries of snow still heading this way is the best. Lucky for us there is a front heading this way to hit over a three day period leaving us with close to 1.5 metres of fresh stuff. The wider skis to play in the powder are definitely out! With the slopes quieter after the half term rush, and probably the best fall of the season on the horizon about to hit us, surely this is the best place to be next week?  the best snow is at higher altitudes. If you’re looking for a good run, we recommend “Cave des Creux”. Located in 1850, this phenomenal hidden gem is full of twisty corners and three optional runs that lead back to each other… it is not to be missed!

La Tania

It is currently dumping down with snow in La Tania! With it forecast to continue snowing into early next week. Plenty of the fresh stuff to be had on the pistes – so get up there first thing to ski the fresh lines down the Foyleres piste. Temperatures in the minus numbers all next week, so the snow is here to stay for now. The forecast is to be sunny at the end of next week, so bring your sunnies too!

Snow depth at the top: 202cm
Snow depth at the base: 131cm

Careful not to get stuck in all that powder!

Meribel

It’s dumping in Meribel! Over 30cm of fresh snow have fallen in the last 24 hours and it shows no sign of stopping soon. Wind levels remain low and lifts are open all the way to the top of the mountain meaning there is plenty of lovely soft stuff to play in. Low lying cloud is restricting visibility from mid-station level up so if being able to see where you’re going is high on the priority list head to one of the tree enclosed runs, such as Gelinotte in the Olympic section or Pic Bleu, a lovely long blue which winds its way down from the top of the Col de Loze. Another half metre of snow is due to be on its way over the weekend so next week should be an absolute corker.

Snow depth at the top: 202cm
Snow depth at the base: 100cm
Snowfall due in the next few days: 54cm
Open pistes: 42/63

Morzine

It is currently snowing in Morzine right down to the town, and everyone was excited to get up for first lifts today.  The snow the last week has been great on the higher slopes, and slushy and slowly disappearing on the lower slopes.  Fear not, however!  We are due to get a dump of over a meter in the next 3 days, so get rested, dig out your goggles and get out here! I recommend heading over to the Freeride Zone for some great skiing.  Keep an eye out for the avalanche risk (currently 3), as this can change, especially with more snow on the way.  Remember to bring your avalanche pack if venturing off-piste to take advantage of all the powder!

Snow depth at the top: 240cm
Snow depth at the base: 60cm
Snowfall due in the next few days: 72cm
Open pistes: 108/117

Serre Chevalier

Once again it’s snowing in Serre Chevalier, bit of a blizzard on Wednesday afternoon up high above 2000m but no doubt fun in the forest below. Photo shows the lovely ‘Flocon’ mountain restaurant in the Monetier sector, but we had no time to stop for a coffee or something stronger!

The next week looks to be even better with more snow forecast and quiet  pistes once again.

Espace Killy

Val d’Isere & Tignes are currently laden with powder at the moment. And it’s awesome. If you can manage first lifts, or around then, the pistes provide a clean canvas for fresh lines to be carved into. Fortunately a pisteur’s strike has been avoided and hence we can all enjoy this white fun. Sunday bought half a metre of snow, thus in places you could ski through waist-deep powder! I am not lying. More snow is coming too, whilst visibility may be an issue this week the snow conditions will be fantastic. Be careful off piste though, make sure you have all your gear and know how to use it.

Snow depth at the top: 300cm
Snow depth at the base: 165cm
Snowfall due in the next few days: 60-80cm

Snow Conditions in the Alps: What's it really like?

No snow all of December. There are articles all over the internet with dreadful write ups about the state of the Alps, and how we've barely had a sprinkling of snow in the past month. All these dooms-day articles are getting people worried…
