Photo Diary: How Was The 2017/18 Ski Season In The Alps?

Image Tuesday, 01, May, 2018


There's no doubt that winter 2017/18 was one of the best, snowiest seasons the French Alps have seen in recent years. The mountains have been snow-covered from beginning to end and we've loved it! To celebrate, we've round up our favourite shots from the season...


Ski Conditions in December 2017

“Superb ski conditions were served up for Christmas in the French Alps with blue skies and groomed snow the norm but now fresh snow is falling and temperatures have dropped. Prospects for skiers as we head into the New Year look really exciting with heavy snowfall and also sunshine days in the forecast…. Epic conditions for the start of 2018.” Telegraph, 28th December 2017.

“Ski season has best start in years as snow falls across the Alps.” Independent, 18th December 2017.

Ski Conditions in March 2018

“The snow is great and the skiing is even better. This is the year to head to the Alps for a last-minute ski trip. It has been one of the best winters in the Alps for years. Snow began falling early in December and there have been regular dumps of the white stuff since, with forecasts for the weeks ahead looking promising.” Tom Chesshyre, The Times, 10th March 2018.
