Christmas & New Year Snow Record

Nearly all our resorts have a snow range above 1500m (around 5,000ft). Altitude is however not the only important factor.


Some areas like the Grand Massif or Mont-Blanc Val d’Arly benefit from a microclimate because of their close proximity to Europe’s highest peak, Mont-Blanc. These areas have a much more reliable snow record than other resorts at the same altitude or even than some higher-up.

North-Facing Slopes

Other important factors for good snow are North-facing slopes as whatever cover they get will simply last longer. What lies below the snow cover is also of importance: a few centimetres will be enough to ski on pasture whereas more will be required to cover a rocky surface.

Snow Cannons

Finally resorts that have snow cannons to cover the lower slopes (generally the nursery slopes) offer a good guarantee. These will normally run at night from early December to top-up on natural snow cover.

Above all what is important is to check the hard facts, as in the end the snow history over a period of time is the only reliable indicator. Over the past 8 years skiing was available in all our featured resorts. Please see individual resort pages for historical snow records.
