A Season Recap

The season is heading towards a close although the slopes over 2000 metres are in pretty good shape. Closing day at Grands Montets is 5th May and Brevent and Le Tour close on 22nd April. Otherwise Flegere and Les Houches have already closed. Flegere has snow but the Cable Car is being replaced this summer. Les Houches struggled with late season snow depth.

Early snow arrived in November prior to lift opening but didn’t really consolidate into good early conditions and the option for early season touring was limited.

Above Charamillon 11th December prior to lifts opening.

December conditions were average and the resort was super busy over Xmas and New Year. We were lucky to have a few good days with Hayley.

Below Floria

January through to early February were pretty good with substantial snowfall and some good weather days.

Early March brought some great powder days
