Samoens snow history

Thanks to its geographical location in the north of Haute Savoie, the Grand Massif enjoys abundant, regular snowfalls throughout the season. The area is well known for the quality of the snow in spring. With 80% of the slopes north-facing, the snow tends to lie for longer and remain in good condition.

Just take a look at Samoen's historical snow records below:
