Ski Samoens with a few handy phone apps

Ski Samoens with the help of some handy apps

Winter is definitely on its way! The Samoëns valley is full of the spectacular colours of autumn and we’ve seen snow on the surrounding mountains a few times already (in fact, as I write this, there’s still snow cover to about 1,600m).

With well over 3 metres of snow already at the top lifts and 150cms at Samoëns 1600, we thought that our luck might be running out… It turns out the snow gods have other ideas with another day of constant snow last week!
