Live reports from the French Alps 

Overview 

17.02.17

There was a coherent narrative in France on Thursday 16th of February: sun and fast, well groomed slopes. It was a beautiful day in the Portes du Soleil, where the sun was shining throughout the day. The slopes are in good condition but can soften up fast where exposed to the sun and become hard where they are in the shade for too long. Generally, conditions remain best in Avoriaz (90/120cm) but Chatel (50/90cm) is also a good option. It was a similarly lovely day in the 3 valleys where the sun was shining. The skiing there is still fantastic as the pistes remain in excellent condition, especially at the top end. Resort runs are pretty variable but even the runs down to St. Martin are still in good condition, despite softening up fast in the strong sun. The slopes will be best in the morning and that is true across all resorts. As a general rule, slopes will soften up pretty early in the strong sun but will tend to harden where there is shade, so if you want to avoid hard and possibly icy slopes then stay on the sunny side!
