Snow Heading to French Alps

SNOW AND FREEZING TEMPERATURES HEADING TO THE ALPS!

 

Mental Pre-season Snow ForecastHeard about the Arctic Blast about to hit the UK and Europe? Well this is great news for the ski resorts of France as by Saturday, it’s going to bring freezing conditions and lots of early snow to the Alps.

After a long, unseasonably hot summer in the mountains, this is welcome news. Cold temperatures are needed at this time of the year to get the ground cold and prepare it for the snowfall which will form the all-important base. Some resorts in France are expecting to see temperatures down to -9, accompanied by up to 1 metre of snow. Check out the snow forecast for your resort.
