Snow Report | 15 Sept: First snowfall in France

Snow Report | 15 Sept: First snowfall in France The first sprinkling of snow has started to appear on the peaks of some of our favourite ski resorts’, reminding us that winter is just around the corner. 

Up to 20cm fell in the northern French Alps in the higher ski resorts. The best of the new snow was seen on the Grande Motte glacier in Tignes as the brown, dull landscape is transformed into a snowy, winter wonderland. Take a look at the video below if you don't believe us!

Les Deux Alpes and Tignes have now closed for summer skiing and both are set to re-open in October. 

If the sight of snowfall is getting you excited we currently have a fantastic range of  deals, including the lowest prices we’ve seen in a long time for Christmas and New Year getaways.

Here are our favourite recent photos of the new snow:
