Snow is falling, all around me...


We have been super excited in the office with all the snow news coming in. The French Alps is turning white right before our eyes, so here's a rolling round-up of what our resorts were sharing! We will keep adding to this page (and to our Instagram and Facebook) new snow snaps as and when we spot them.

The snowfalls over the weekend have been some of the biggest in living memory before Halloween.
