Les 2 Alpes Snow Report & Forecast

Discover the latest Les 2 Alpes snow conditions

Alex Armand - TipTop Ski Coaching, Les 2 Alpes Reporter | Published

The week started with sunshine and warm temperatures but it all changed on Tuesday night when snow started falling and continued all the way through Wednesday.

Thursday was a powder day, although avalanche risk had risen to 4/5, so plenty of caution was needed on the slopes. The sun will be shining on Friday and then more snow is forecast over the weekend and into next week.

Just as forecasted, snow started falling in Les 2 Alpes on Tuesday night, continuing all the way through Wednesday with just some brief respite when the sun shone through the clouds.

It continued overnight, bringing around 30cm of fresh powder to the Deux Alpes slopes. What's even better is that this is just the beginning of a very snowy few days, with another 20cm of snow on the forecast this afternoon, and then at least another 25cm from today and until Tuesday, making it a total of almost 70cm of fresh snow in the next seven days or so.

The sun will shine on Friday, which is set to be a beautiful bluebird powder day. However, the avalanche risk has risen to 4/5 so please stay safe out there!
