Samoens and Grand Massif Snow Conditions & Weather

We're building up towards the 2019-20 ski season here in Samoens! Once the season begins on 14th December we'll bring daily updates on snow and weather conditions, until then we'll keep you updated on how conditions are shaping up!

11-12-19 - We received around 30-40cm of snow in the Grand Massif on Monday which has topped up an already excellent snow base for early December. But in terms of snow, the main event is Friday and Saturday with Chamonix-Meteo predicting 50-70cm of snow on Friday alone! AND it's currently snowing, right now, in Samoens village at 700m. Opening week conditions are going to be sensational!

09-12-19 - Snow is falling at Samoens village level! Almost every forecast is predicting more than 1m of snow this week, ahead of the full opening of the Grand Massif this weekend. Before today, we already had up to 120cm on the pistes of the Grand Massif and combined with what is forecast to fall this weekend, we could be in for a sensational first few weeks of the season! Get here for opening week (next week!), beat the crowds and quite possibly secure some stunning skiing conditions!

06-01-19 - Thanks to the great early snow, Flaine is opening early this weekend only (7-8th December) for a special pre-season opening. The full opening of the entire Grand Massif is from Saturday 14th December. The forecast looking VERY exciting next week, with heavy snow and cold temperatures forecast! Significant amounts of snow are possible, which would set up wonderful conditions for the first weeks of the season.

01-12-19 - It has been snowing for several days in Samoens and the Grand Massif and we now have a excellent snow base for the 1st day of December! Meteo-France are reporting 140cm of snow at 2500m, and it continues to snow today! This is all fantastic news for those planning an early season visit to the Grand Massif! Check out our social media channels for recent photos and videos (links above).

23-11-19 - Current forecasts are suggesting a possibility of heavy snow for the Grand Massif for the last few days of November. Possibly over 50cm! Fingers crossed!

20-11-19 - Snow conditions are looking promising in the Grand Massif! Heavy snow and cold temperatures have left the slopes above Samoens looking decidedly wintry, we've even had some snow down to village level. Ski tourers have been enjoying the great early conditions! Cold temperatures have allowed the snow canons to run and create huge mounds of snow which are now being groomed to form a durable base which will hopefully set us up perfectly for the season ahead.

04-11-19 - We've got snow on the pistes of the Grand Massif! The forecasts suggest further snow all week with the snow level dropping to around 1000m, just above Samoens village level! Great news, and a great start to November.
