Not every year is the same so it is essential to look at historical snow records over the past few years to get a true picture on snow reliability.

Nearly all our resorts have a snow range above 1500m (around 5,000ft). Altitude is however not the only important factor. 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. Other important factors for good snow are North-facing slopes as whatever cover their 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. 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 what is important is to check the hard facts as in the end the snow history over a period of time is the only reliable indicator.
