Snow Conditions in France (16 April 2015)
Following a week of very warm sunshine, clouds moved into France on Thursday, bringing the possibility of some light rain showers later in the day.
The lower slopes have really taken a hit this week and as a result expect some very worn conditions or even closed resort runs. So head high for the best skiing and the most reliable snow conditions. Resorts such as Val Thorens (110/225cm) and Tignes (76/180cm) provide two of the best options at present owing to their high altitude slopes.
Some good skiing is also available at present in the Paradiski area, with both Les Arcs (45/200cm) and La Plagne (10/180cm) reporting good conditions on the upper pistes in particular. The lowest slopes are suffering but the link remains open and both resorts are set to keep their lifts turning until April 26th.
Sadly some fairly heavy rain is forecast over the coming days, providing a wet final weekend for many resorts. The higher slopes (above 2,500m) could see up to 30cm of fresh snow in places over the weekend so head high for the chance of some powder.
