[resname] Snow Report & Forecast

Discover the latest [resname] snow conditions

George Treble, [resname] Reporter | Published

The 2019/20 season couldn't have started any better. Thanks to the major snow dumps in November, there's is a great base on the Avoriaz slopes which means that December will boast pretty perfect conditions.

Thanks to these wonderful snow conditions, the lifts in the Arare and Fornet areas were able to open last weekend, earlier than planned. Around 30cm of fresh snow had fallen in the previous days and, coupled with sunshine, they made for some pretty incredible early-season skiing.

Our reporter George skinned up the slopes to find some stashes of snow and take some shots of the very lucky first skiers. Take a look at the video above and come ski with us in December!

Avoriaz Dump Alert - 10th December 2019

The winter has already got off to a great start in Avoriaz, with a limited early opening for the past two weekends. However, as the official opening date gets closer and closer, even more snow has been falling with cloudy skies over the weekend followed by heavy snowfall throughout the day on Monday.

On top of the already excellent base layer that has built up over the last few weeks, a further 30cm to 40cm has fallen. This will make the upper pistes even better but the real advantage is for the lower slopes. The runs down to the bottom of Prodains and Ardent have not been open so far, and the lower parts have been quite rocky. However, the freezing level started low on Monday (around 1400 metres) and dropped throughout the day, with snow falling all the way down in Morzine overnight. It also increases the likelihood of Super Morzine opening this weekend.

There is currently more heavy snowfall forecast for the end of the week – specifically Friday and Saturday – which should hopefully lead to an incredible opening week. The temperatures look set to remain low for the next few days before the next snowfall hits, despite the current sunshine.
