France Snow

It was another beautiful, sunny day in France on Monday 20th of March. The warm temperatures and sunny weather mean spring conditions are becoming the norm in the French Alps. Those who prefer firmer runs will need to get up early and head up the mountain. Lower slopes are likely to be slushy, getting on patchy in the afternoons. There were spring conditions as far as the eye could see in the Portes du Soleil today. Resort runs in Morzine (70/100cm), Les Gets (30/110cm) and Chatel (30/80cm) could get rather slushy later on. Even Avoriaz (90/180cm) slopes were softening up pretty quickly. It was a similar situation in Flaine (73/285cm), though pistes stayed firmer for longer thanks to the altitude. It’s worth bearing in mind that the Flaine – Sixt connection is now shut. It’s pretty muddy around the resort runs in Orcieres (15/210cm) where the spring weather is really putting the groomers to work. You can expect those to get slushy in the afternoon. There were spring conditions in Serre Chevalier (25/150cm) too, however if that wasn’t your thing there were still plenty of firmer, more wintery conditions up high. Slopes at the top of Monetier were excellent and keeping firm for a while. Conversely, slopes down to Chantemerle were slushly and soupy very early on.
