[resname] Snow Report & Forecast

Discover the latest [resname] snow conditions

Ana Hernández, [resname] Editor | Published

The La Plagne lifts will welcome the first skiers and snowboarders on Saturday, December 14th, for what is set to be an awesome 2019/20 season. It's been snowing on and off for pretty much the whole month and the La Plagne slopes are covered in a fluffy blanket of fresh snow.

Snow depths reach well over 50cm at 3000m, with around 15cm of snow down in the town centre. The weather forecast is for more snow today and on Sunday. Are you ready to carve the first turns of the season in La Plagne? Roll on winter!

La Plagne Dump Alert - 9th December 2019

It’s dumping down in La Plagne this morning following a very snowy few weeks across the area. Indeed, the resort received so much snow through November that the lift company took the unprecedented decision to open for an early-season teaser yesterday, ahead of the official opening this coming Saturday (14th December).

Our man on the ground, Tim from Plagne Bellecôte’s Spitting Feathers pub (http://tiny.cc/vljfhz), sent us these photos showing the perfect conditions yesterday contrasted with the heavy snowfall today.

Around 40cm is expected to fall today with a short lull tomorrow before winter truly returns with a vengeance towards the end of the week. If current forecasts are to be believed, we could be looking at a further metre and a half by Saturday, adding to the existing base of 1.10m up high and 30cm in the lower villages – quite exceptional depths for this early in the season. The week before Christmas is always one of the quietest times of the year so if you fancy riding deserted pistes with perfect powdery snow, best get booking now.
