Les Arcs will be opening this Saturday, with around 70% of the ski area expected to be open. Around 8-9000 visitors per day are expected on the opening weekend.
As the snow continues to fall, around 20 resorts should be open by this weekend. Whilst the weather outlook over the next few days looks very uncertain, another half meter could fall at altitude before the weekend. In addition to the Savoie and Haute Savoie resorts already open (Courchevel, Tignes, Val d’Isère and Val Thorens), we expect the following will probably open on Saturday:
Les Arcs, Avoriaz, Chamonix/Grands Montets, Châtel, Flaine, Les Menuires, Méribel, Montriond, Orelle, Peisey-Vallandry, La Plagne, La Tania and Valloire.
