Samoëns 2012/13 Snow Report

The 2012/13 Snow Report for Samoëns and the Grand Massif

If you need more reasons to choose the Grand Massif for you next winter holiday, look no further than our impressive snow history.

Another bluebird day in Samoëns

Given our geography and location we are blessed with consistently impressive snow depths and, arguably more importantly, incredible snow conditions!

The more famous resorts such as nearby Chamonix are not only more expensive and busier, but it’s a myth that they offer better snow conditions. Just take a look at the snow history below…

Super Snowy Samoens

It’s All About the Snow

Given the impressive levels of white stuff falling on Samoëns and the surrounding area, it’s only right that this blog post is about snow! The start to the season has been incredible and the skies keep on giving! Read on for the snow facts…

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow…

The weather outside is not frightful, but ski conditions are truly delightful!

Off-piste skiing Samoëns

Off-piste Skiing in Samoëns – a powder paradise

Samoëns sits within the extensive Grand Massif ski region, the fourth largest ski area in France. This impressive ski domain boasts over 265km of pistes (interestingly, this statistic hasn’t changed in at least seven years despite the creation of new pistes almost annually!)

Despite being a fantastic all round resort, particularly good for families (see more on family-friendliness in our previous post) one of the strengths of the Grand Massif and Samoëns is its off-piste skiing and boarding.

An off-piste adventure

This winter season has started brilliantly with an abundance of snow (250cm on the upper slopes – the best week 2 snow level in over eight years!) and we took to the slopes today to find some of that wonderful powder.

Sometimes the best spots are worth a little walk…

Samoëns Weather Update – And the snow keeps on falling…

Truly Amazing Conditions for the Formal Opening of Samoëns Skiing

After the treat of the early weekend opening in Samoëns, everybody in the valley (and I do mean everybody!) is excited about the formal opening of the lifts this Saturday.  Admittedly, the weather in the village has been pretty variable with snow, rain and everything in between, but whenever there’s a break in the precipitation, the clear skies reveal the snow line well below 1600m (it’s been down to about 900m today!).
