Megeve Snow Report

14th January, 2017

About 30-40cm snow last night and it snowed all day today so virtually all the pistes and lifts are open.  The pistes are perfect and the off-piste is knee deep and fluffy.

It started to snow yesterday evening and by this morning there was about 15cm of new snow.  It snowed most of the day and is continuing this evening.  Forecast to continue until Sunday/Monday. Very cold skiing today and some lifts had frozen cables and started late. The expectation is that 80% or more of the pistes will be open from tomorrow.  The pistes are perfect and there is a lot of off-piste to be found.  Lots of Chamonix skiers around - Chamonix has very little open because they need a metre of snow to cover the rocks  - luckily most of the base in Megeve is pasture, so you don't need much snow.

It snowed for most of the day yesterday and dawned sunny this morning.  About 8cm of new snow so the pistes were perfect.  There was a little off-piste (see above) but the cover was thin - luckily most of the base in Megeve is pasture, so you don't need much snow.  The forecast is for about 50-70cm over the next few days  so hopefully we will be almost fully open by the weekend.

There was a little snow a couple of days ago and the Croix de Christ bowl is  open via the Clementine ridge - a very nice run. Today it started snowing at about 10am and is forecast to continue until early tomorrow, then heavy snow Thursday and Friday and for the foreseeable future.  Two more pistes opened today - Olympique on Rochebrune and the Mont Rosset red so there is now quite a lot of skiing.  The pisteurs are on alert that days off may be cancelled on Thursday so they can open a lot more.   There are now about 20 pistes open including three long greens from the top to the bottom of Rochebrune, Mont D'Arbois and Bettex and several long blues and reds.   Hopefully the Thursdays snow will mean a lot more will be open on Friday.

It snowed overnight and this morning bringing about 8cm of new snow to freshen up the pistes.  It was very cold and windy today.  There are now about 14-15 pistes open including three long greens from the top to the bottom of Rochebrune, Mont D'Arbois and Bettex.   Hopefully the new snow will be enough for a few more pistes to open.  More snow forecast for early next week.

3rd January, 2017

A light dusting of new snow this morning in town.  Hopefully a few cm on the mountain to freshen up the pistes.  There are 7 or 8 pistes open now including three long greens from the top to the bottom of Rochebrune, Mont D'Arbois and Bettex.  More snow forecast for later in the week.

Good short term weather forecast.  Reasonably reliable.
