November snow in the Alps

The early part of November 2016 has seen epic quantities of snow fall on the Portes du Soleil, France. Avoriaz received the first snowstorm on 5th November with Morzine getting covered with a blanket of snow too. Temperatures have been unseasonably cold with snow falling right down into the valleys, as low as 500m in altitude. On 13th November The Sunday Times Travel section announced that a massive 161cm of snow had been recorded in the Portes du Soleil! Here are some photos of this November snow and of winter 16/17 so far in the Portes du Soleil.

On 12th September we woke up to blue skies after another night of fresh snow, so we got the splitboards out for a tour up the Pointe de Chesery. Below are some photos of the epic November snow conditions in the Portes du Soleil, check here for more photos of our splitboard tour.

Due to the huge amount of early snow, Champery on the Swiss side of the Portes du Soleil, has announced that it will open 1 month early, on 19th November 2016. Avoriaz is set to open on Friday 9th December, although rumours are circulating that both Avoriaz and Les Gets might open early – we will keep you posted if so!

With over 20 people booked on, we have groups of all levels from Beginner to Intermediate and Advanced Technical Performance. Join us and make the most of these epic conditions!
