Historical Snow in Samoens

Samoens snow report - 2012-2017 (5 season average)

Skiing in Samoens: Samoens and more generally the Grand Massif (Flaine) has always benefited from a superb snow record thanks to the microclimate resulting from the proximity of Mont Blanc. Snow cover on at least parts of the ski area is pretty much guaranteed from mid-December until late April. Samoens also benefits from North-facing slopes which greatly helps to retain snow longer. Here is the snow record data for Samoens. The first row shows the week for which the measurement applies eg. February 3 is the 3rd week in February. Top slopes shows the average snow cover in cm at the top of the ski area. Bottom Slopes shows the average snow cover in cm at the bottom of the ski area (this is generally where the nursery pistes are located). About 10 cm is generally enough to ski but it very much depends on what’s below ie. grass or more rocky surface.
