Snow Reports France
Christmas and New Year might have been a bit of a wash-out for many resorts this year, but the great news is that it’s now snowing BIGTIME in the French Alps! Unfortunately in a lot of cases this new snow is falling on a pretty thin base, so the above summary of snow depths from J2Ski should prove useful if you’re trying to decide where to go.

Having just returned from Sainte Foy Tarentaise ourselves, where we also skied Les Arcs, we can confirm that the conditions are now pretty good, as they seem to be generally in the Tarentaise.

Chamonix however remains firmly at the top of the pile, as in fact it was over Christmas and New Year, reporting a very welcome 3m snow depth currently, with another 9cms on the way soon.

Long may it continue!!!!
