Skiing at Christmas

Christmas 2017 saw some of the best snow for years and 2018 offered brilliant conditions too. In 2017, the Alps saw 10 days of consecutive snowfall in some places the week before Christmas. But snow had been falling consistently from November so it was a bumper start to the season. Snow depths for La Rosiere, for example, were 290cm on the upper pistes and 182cm on the lower pistes. That's almost double compared to historical data for the same time of year. Almost every resort in the French Alps saw heavy snowfalls over Christmas and New Year.

Christmas dates

Christmas week 2019 commences on Saturday 21st December which gives you enough time to settle in and unpack before the big day on Tuesday. Check out is Saturday 28th December, again meaning when your home you have enough time to settle and unpack before New Year's Eve!

Christmas Snow Record

“The 2017/18 ski season got off to a memorable start …certainly the most promising beginning for at least four years.” - Patrick Thorne, Editor, InTheSnow.

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

Microclimate

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 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.
