It’s 10th July and here in Morzine we have just had 4 days of non-stop rain and its been cold. This is very unusual for a summer in the French Alps, as normaly we would expect long periods of high pressure at this time, bringing endless sunny days and temperatures in the mid to high 20s. Instead we woke to the sight of snow in Avoriaz this morning! Is this the first snow of winter 2014/15?! Surely not!
We are forecast a few more days of rain and then back to glorious sun next week, phew! But in the meantime, a trip to one of the glacier resorts for some summer snowboarding could be in order!
Here are some photos from Avoriaz in the snow this morning and followed by webcam photos from other resorts in the French Alps, including Tignes, Les Deux Alps, Val Thorens & Meribel.
Snow on the glacier in Les Deux Alpes, which is currently open for summer snowboarding…
Tignes in the snow which is also set for summer snowboarding on the Grande Motte glacier….
Next is Val Thorens…
And finally the summit of Tougnete in Méribel.
All this snow making you start thinking about a snowboard holiday for winter 2014/15? Why not join us on one of our snowboard camps in Morzine & Avoriaz!
