Mixed bag for 2015 French Ski Season

The end of the 2014/2015 French ski season was better than the beginning, at least in terms of snow cover. French ski lift operators group Domaines skiables de France (DSF) is reporting a drop of 3% in the number of skier days compared to last season and with just a handful of high altitude resorts still open not much will change by the end of the season.

Nearly summer

With temperatures hitting 26C today, in the valley, it almost seems like summer has arrived. However we're expecting snow at 1500 meters this weekend with a brutal drop in temperatures. Winter hasn't said its last word.

Grand Revard Nordic Ski Area

The Savoie Grand Revard cross country ski area claims over 150 km on a high, wooded plateau at the heart of the Bauges mountain range. (note I added up their piste figures and got 100km with some pistes covering the same trail.
