Snow falling…resorts opening

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.

Snow arriving on Friday?

Could the snow arrive towards the end of the week? The ensembles are still showing good possibility of snow from Friday, Méteo France and other sources seem to agree. We expect the resorts to confirm over the next couple of days whether they will open this weekend, and we are hearing rumours that Les Menuires have delayed opening to 10th December. We will try to get confirmation…..
