Snow Overview - France (snow news updated 24-Apr-2017)
Sunny weather continued to dominate the skies for the remainder of open resorts on Monday 24th April.
In the Tarentaise region, Val Thorens (90/140cm), Tignes (33/145cm) and Val d’Isere (35/145cm) still have a good amount of lifts spinning, and the skiing is surprisingly good for the time of year.
Futher south, Les Deux Alpes (0/200cm) continues of offer some nicely groomed pistes on the glacier, but nearby its sister resort, Alpe d’Huez has now closed.
From Tuesday 25th onwards, the forecast is predicting fairly heavy snow for many resorts. Chamonix (0/180cm) could receive up to 70cm by the end of the week.
European Weather Outlook
Snow wintery conditions are making another late season return to the Alps. Although it is not as rare occurrence as many think, heavy snow this late in the year has sadly caught many resorts shut down. For those resorts which remain open, powder conditions are expected. Most of this week’s heavy snowfall will be focused in the broader region of Italy and Austria but snow will fall right along the main Alps range. The high mountain resorts in Germany, France and Switzerland can expected heavy snow right through until Thursday.
There is currently now skiing in our featured Pyrenees resorts, although the area will see some light snow this week.
In Scandinavia the normal mix of grey and dull skies is forecast this week.
