This past week has seen some great snow fall across the Alps, the great news for all skiers however is that the best is yet to come!
La Plagne has seen the most amount of snow in the past 7 days with 86cm. Whilst Val Thorens and Meribel both received over 70cms. Verbier, Tignes, and Val d’Isere all saw over half a metre of snow. Out of all of those resorts La Plagne (30/230cm – lower and upper piste snow measurements) and Verbier (27/200cm) will be happiest due to their lower piste measurements being the lowest
Looking firmly forward…
This fan favourite for Swiss ski resorts is leading the way for the amount of snow forecast. They are expecting a massive 262cm in the next nine days. Zermatt currently has 30/200cm so this almost excessive amount of snow will help out the lower piste and off piste conditions immeasurably.
One of the French resorts you can always depend on, Val d’Isere looks like a great place to go if you’re looking to pick up a last minute deal. They have 147cm predicted in the snow forecast to add to their already impressive figures, 134/235cm
It almost appears like greed when your figures are 134/235cm but Tignes is set for more snow, to the count of 133cm, on top of the already reported 65cm this week.
Like the rest of the Swiss resorts, Verbier has a healthy upper piste but a lower piste that could do with more snow (27/200cm). They have seen 65cm this week but will still be pleased with the 9-day forecast predicting 128cm for the ski resort.
Another resort which is sitting pretty marking up 150/250cm. On top of that they are set to see another metre of snow in the next nine days. The majority of which is due to fall pretty evenly over the next six days.
Other resorts of note, with particularly good conditions, are Courchevel (129/180cm – 71cm on route), Alpe d’Huez (140/250cm – 104cm forecast) and Les Arcs (125/230cm – 113cm due).
