More Pre-Half Term Snow Is Falling

Is the half term going to be the best, snowiest conditions we have seen in the Alps during the popular school holiday? It's certainly looking that way as snow just keeps on falling and in droves never seen before by many of our faithful followers.

This weekend boasts the perfect combination of snow and sunshine, with blue skies today and around 20cm of snow is forecast all over the place.

France is boasting great snow this weekend and early next week, with most resorts expecting around 20cm of fresh snow and some welcome sunshine so you can enjoy the powder. France is having its season of seasons and the half-term skiing is going to be exceptional at this rate.
