Snow Conditions in France (31 July 2014)
It was quite a sunny morning for our featured French resorts. Les Deux Alpes (205cm) offers great summer piste skiing but the off piste is a little varied due to lack of recent snow fall. It started out quite bright but clouds developed with the afternoon. Of the 54 lifts 23 were in operation on Thursday 31st August and the temperature was around 8C.
Tignes is scheduled to close on the 3rd August so this weekend will be your last opportunity to ski here until it reopens nearer winter. On Thursday it was quite sunny and warm with three lifts in operation, darker clouds developed later in the afternoon which brought light rainfall lower down the mountain. The off piste is limited so be cautious of rocks if you do hit the side piste.
As the weekend approaches, it will be a mixture of sun and cloud for Friday with more clouds dominating the skies on Saturday and Sunday, which could bring a light snow fall.
