Megeve Snow Reports

19 January, 2017

Its been snowing for several days and nights now.  Excellent skiing on and off piste.  No queues off course and virtually empty pistes. Here is a pic of a friend skiing off piste down to Le Bettex.

Another huge dump of snow and forecast to continue all weekend.  There is such a big base now and fantastic skiing.  We've had a glorious day skiing off-piste.  Come and join us!

We've had more snow overnight, following almost continuous snow last week.  Its getting too much. Our staff are clearing the drive to the Sylvana car park several times a day.  

Skiing is amazing, though not a lot of sunshine - it stops snowing occasionally and we get a clear sunny spell.

Must be a good meter as a base out there now and still snowing today.  Lots of lovely powder!

Sooo much snow!

We're thrilled and very excited that there is SNOW EVERYWHERE! with meter deep snow up at Cotes 2000 and plenty more forecast right down to town level

The locals were queuing up on Friday evening at the lift offices to purchase their passes for the weekend and fantastic conditions are being reported across resort

The ceremony for the lighting of the Christmas tree took place on Saturday evening - very spectacular! Plus all the staff have arrived and are preparing for the arrival of our guests (and hopefully getting a little skiing in too!)

If you haven't already booked for this season, NOW IS THE TIME! We've some fantastic deals and now that the snow has truly arrived, we're filling up fast

Keep an eye on our Instagram, Facebook and Twitter accounts for the latest pics and news....

28th November - Even more early snow!

 

Around 20cm more fell on the slopes over the weekend and a good few inches down in town as well.  There's more forecast this week.  It's cold out there and the snow cannon are going so looking promising for Christmas and New Year!

Around 6 inches fell in town last night, we had to dig out the vans.  Loads more on the slopes.  Skiing not open yet but I guess some lucky people will hike up there!

1 March, 2017

It started snowing on the mountain 2 days ago and hasn't stopped. Still snowing in town at 8pm this evening. Today there was 40 - 50cm new snow on the mountain and 15-20cm in town.   So it was a perfect skiing day but only about 5% sunshine.  Forecast is for more snow, heaviest next Sunday.

It hasn't snowed for a week but most of the pistes are in perfect condition. Today was sunny in the morning but clouded over later - maybe a little new snow coming - forecast uncertain.  Its school holidays for Paris, UK and most of Europe, so the really popular easy-to-reach pistes are a bit busy but you can get away and find deserted pistes.

The key to french holiday skiing in Megeve is to get up early - the Parisians don't really get going until 11, so the first 2 hours are great.  The picture above is the Olympique piste in the St Nicholas area, taken at about 11.30.

The sun finally came out for a few hour this morning.  We had about 50cm new snow in the past week and the pistes are now perfect and its getting colder again making the off-piste lighter.  There is still plenty of untracked snow. Below is a pic of Kathryn this morning.

It's the first week of the Paris holidays but the slopes are not crowded.  Perhaps the Parisians have been put off by the poor early season snow and decided not to come.  On our home page there is a picture of the Cote 2000 lift at 1pm - all the seats empty. We skied straight onto lifts all morning, not even a hint of a queue.

5th Febuary, 2017

Started snowing again sometime during the night and snowed all day.  About 30-40cm on the mountain since Friday.  Here is a picture in the old town at lunchtime.

Good short term weather forecast.  Reasonably reliable.
