Snow Report | 23 Mar 2016: Over 100cm of snow forecast!
Slope conditions and snow bases are looking excellent for this time of year, with many upper slopes in France with well over 250 cm snow base, including 350cm in Flaine, 300cm in La Rosiere and 280cm in Val Thorens.

Ski conditions are the best we’ve had all season. Since January, the Alps have seen more snow than the previous 2 seasons. If you thought the end of season snow was good last year, than they are even better this winter! With the excellent snowfall we’ve experienced so far this March, Easter and April skiing will be exceptional, especially with even more snowfall on the way!


Tignes snow depth history

Tignes snow data
Since January, Tignes has had more snow than the 2014/15 & 2013/14 ski seasons. Winter 2015/16 has seen 759cm of snowfall so far in Tignes.

We’ve always loved skiing in March and this season has been one of the best March’s in years. View last minute ski deals.

Snow Report | 29 Dec 2015: Snow is coming!
Santa may not have delivered us snow for Christmas but 2016 is set to drop the goods so winter can get back on track again.

We’ve been checking the snow reports daily and the coming snowfall has been changing around, but it now seems to be sticking to a light snowfall on New Year’s Eve then a heavier snowfall of well over a foot on 2nd-4th January in most ski resorts in the French and Swiss Alps

Snow forecasts are predicting up to 140cm may fall in the French Alps as temperatures drop considerably, 60-90cm in the Western Alps and 30cm in the Pyrenees. Up to 50cm may fall in the higher regions of Austria, but most resorts are forecast just between 15-30cm of snow. Snow news is varied in Italy, western resorts such as Cervinia, Courmayeur and Champoluc are forecast between 40-80cm, whereas South Tyrol resorts may only get a sprinkling of fresh snow over the next week.

Chase the pow and take a look at our last minute 2016 ski deals

Highlights for the next 9 days snow forecast include:


Chamonix - 156cm
Zermatt – 154cm
Les Deux Alpes – 149cm
Flaine – 146cm
Alpe d’Huez – 132cm
Avoriaz - 131cm

Val Thorens, France


We were in Val Thorens for opening week at the start of the month where the slopes were in good condition and there was more than enough snow for great skiing and snowboarding. As Val Thorens is the highest ski resort in Europe, the slopes are still in good condition.

View photos from our early season ski trip to Val Thorens.

Here's how it's looking in Val Thorens now:





There are poor snow conditions in places in the Southern Alps, including Italy, southern French Alps and low Austrian resorts. So if you are thinking of a last minute ski holiday in 2016, aim for the higher ski resorts or talk to one of our ski experts to discover a ski resort best suited to you.
