Here is a review of the winter using Meteo France’s figures, but that obviously doesn’t give the full picture of what people experience on the ground.

My thoughts, Early snow and good cover above 1000 meters in the Northern Alps with ski touring possible from trailheads at 800m and a return to skiing in the forest of the pre-alps. Some surprisingly bare spots on summits and ridges due to the very high winds. Frustration at not being able to get out more due to work commitments.
