Avoriaz Snow Report & Forecast

Discover the latest Avoriaz snow conditions

Caro Blackwell, Ski Editor Published

We’ve been enjoying a fabulous week here in the Alps with near perfect conditions, although really very cold we have sunshine, blue skies and plenty of snow around to enjoy! We’ve had no significant snowfall since last Wednesday. We’ve been eagerly watching the forecast for early next week, thinking we have a *Nordstau finally coming (*this is when a wandering jet stream has a more north/south pattern, with polar air able to pick up moisture from the North Sea) which should bring good snow on Monday evening. Currently, this is scaling back as there is a high pressure area to the west of The Alps, which will likely hinder this. However we are surmising on a weather situation that is still 4 days away, so quite hard to predict.

In Avoriaz it remains very cold and we have colder air coming in, peaking at -11°C Friday evening, with a maximum of -3°C on Monday.   Generally it will remain sunny with some cloud cover and a few snow showers.  It’s looking like we may have to wait a little longer for our top up of snow, although a few cms are forecast for Monday. We have good snow conditions with an upper snow depth of around 290cm with 90cm at 1800m resort level.  The avalanche risk is currently moderate at 2/5.

The freezing level is down to 0m on Saturday night but predicted to rise to between 750m and 1100m on Tuesday.

Top Tips if you are coming skiing this week

  • While the pistes are still quiet, if you head out during the lunch break between 12 and 2pm, it is often like having a private mountain to explore! 
  • The pistes are quite hard-packed, but the snow on the sides of the runs is often softer. Keep to the sides of the pistes for a more effortless, less icy experience. 
  • Pack a variety of equipment - highlight and low light goggle lenses and you'll need layers!
  • If you are heading out at night, windchill is dropping the day temperatures by up to 10°C, so really keep warm and stay safe. 
  • Always check the avalanche risk and don't head off-piste if you don't have the correct information, equipment and guidance.

You can still grab a last minute deal to enjoy the sunshine and snow before the school holidays start.
