    Val d'isère skiing

    Val d'isère is justifiably ranked up there with the best resorts in the world. Lift linked with Tignes with which Val d'isère makes up L'Espace Killy, there are 300km of varied pistes to please everyone from beginners to pros. Expert skiers and snowboarders are particularly spoilt for choice in Val d'isère with the 1992 Olympic course, the 'Face', plenty of off-piste (remember to take a guide) and a world class snow park.

    Val d'isère ski resort

    Val d'isère has not only world class skiing but also boasts some world class après ski. The Folie Douce at the top of la Daille gondola is probably the most famous of Val d'isère's après haunts but is far from the only one. Restaurants on and off the mountain are pricey but good, which added to a good range of accommodation and lot's to do for the non-skiers makes it easy to see Val d'isère's attraction.

    Snow Overview - France  (snow news updated 02-Mar-2015)

    Some good new snowfall was recorded at altitude in France on Monday morning, but below around 1,800m, rain was falling. This has resulted in some heavy piste conditions, but with temperatures dropping and new snow in the forecast some of the damage will be repaired. Around 20cm of new snow was recorded at many resorts, although only above around 2,000m owing to the mild temperatures in place across the French Alps. The Argentiere (20/220cm) and Chamonix (20/220cm) Valley was one of these places, with some good falls of powder recorded on the upper slopes. The resort runs were unfortunately not in great condition owing to the rain. Flaine (65/230cm) also saw 20cm of new snow on the upper slopes, which is forecast to increase during the day on Monday and into the rest of the week. The Pyrenees were experiencing even milder conditions, with temperature above freezing even on the highest slopes. As a result the pistes are soft at resorts such as Cauterets (360/500cm), but with the huge snow base, there is little worry of bare patches showing through! The outlook is again a snowy one, with snow expected to fall until Thursday. The totals are expected to be lower than recently, but temperatures are set to drop so what does fall will be more powdery and should fall to all levels. A welcome return to sunny skies is currently set for Friday which is great news if you’re heading out this weekend.

    European Weather Outlook

    The heavy snow falling across the Alps on Monday is set to slowly taper off during the night into Tuesday, especially in France and western Switzerland. But lighter snow is set to fall for much of the week, potentially adding a further 20-30cm to what was falling on Monday, including in the south towards Italy. Temperatures are set to fall away throughout the week and by Thursday the freezing level may reach as low as sea level. Sunshine is currently forecast to make a welcome return on Friday, but Austria may cling on to a few snow clouds into the start of the weekend. The mild air is set to clear through the Pyrenees during Tuesday night, dropping the freezing level to around 1,000m. This should be accompanied by some nice falls of snow of between 10 and 20cm. A sunny spell of weather is then expected to begin on Thursday and last into the weekend, with temperatures set to rise above freezing once more. Settled weather is expected for Bulgaria until Thursday, before more snowclouds sweep in across the country. Initially rain may fall on the lower slopes, but by Sunday around 20cm can be expected on the upper slopes, with perhaps 10cm lower down as the freezing level drops off. A nice settled spell of weather is forecast for Scandinavia, with sunshine in the forecast for both Norway and Sweden. The skies won’t be clear all the time as patches of clouds are set to drift in from time to time, but nothing more than a dusting of snow is expected. Snow is set to continue to fall across Scotland until Tuesday before potentially the best day of the week on Wednesday. Make the most of this break in the weather as sadly a strong southwesterly flow is forecast for the end of the week and the weekend, bringing strong winds and mild temperatures.
