Snow Overview - France (snow news updated 16-Mar-2014)
The conditions across France have not really changed in France since Monday 10th March. The bright, sunny weather continues, and this means the snow softens during the day, especially on exposed south facing slopes. These then harden overnight to provide firm snow in the early morning. Excellent snow conditions can still be enjoyed, especially on higher, north facing slopes.
Cauterets (250/350cm) in the Pyrenees still has the deepest snow base of our reported French resorts, both on their lower and upper pistes, with an average base depth of three metres. Here the temperature is a bit lower than at many Alpine locations, so the snow does not get as soft.
Isola 2000 (215/330cm) is in very good shape at the moment. This resort, along with other Southern Alps locations such as Pre Loup (130/295cm) and Puy St Vincent (130/240cm), offers excellent riding on piste and some good riding off piste too due to the deep snow pack they have currently.
European Weather Outlook
The weather is forecast to remain mostly sunny across the European resorts at the end of this week and into next week. Some cloudy weather could move in over the weekend with a small chance of some light snow or rain. The temperature is expected to rise for the start of next week, although only slightly, with the freezing level expected to sit around 3,000m for the start of next week.
