The annual Nick Ski snow analysis should be along soon but safe to say it ended up pretty good in the end. The early snow around Val Thorens opening day was great but lower down it was unusually slow to get started. Mild temperatures meant it was the first time since snow cannons went in on Folyeres in 2003 that you haven’t been able to ski down to resort on opening day. That said, once the snow did come in a decent amount it had to happen on probably the busiest transfer day of the season – with lots of stories of transport chaos, heroic rescues and everyone helping each other out in the end. Fairly consistent snowfalls followed and snow depths were up to around average by the end of March.
So a little break before Summer when La Tania opens on 4th July until 28th August – Check out all the activities available in Summer on our Summer Life in La Tania page.
