First Proper Dump of 2013 : 21st November 2013
Snow is falling.. all around...
Snow's been coming don thick & fast this morning with around 10cm predicted in resort and a few more centimetres falling into the afternoon and overnight. Everywhere is looking white all over now as this photo from the webcam shows. Temperatures are getting warmer towards Sunday and then cooling off again, so perhaps we'll get some more snow next week...? Keep an eye on the latest weather conditions here.
Unbelievable Start to the Season: 10th December 2012
What a start to the season! After four solid days of snow falling there was a fresh 260cm on the upper slopes and a very high avalanche risk. Even the snow ploughs almost gave up the fight! We got to the stage where the police weren’t letting anyone in or out of resort without winter tyres and chains. Speaking with locals, they find it hard to remember when this much snow fell at the start of the season! But yesterday the skies cleared and revealed one of the most stunning blue bird days of riding I have ever experienced. Thank you snow gods! Current conditions.. its snowing!
A Snowy End to November: 28 November 2012
It's been dumping down in Alpe d'Huez for the past 24 hours and the snow is still continuing to fall today. The white stuff started coming down yesterday afternoon and overnight we must have had around 30cm fall in resort. With another 20cm expected over the course of today, we're all set to get out on the mountain as soon as possible - only a week to go until the season begins for real!
The first real snow in over a month here in the Oisans has left both Alpe d'Huez and 2Alpes with a good covering on the pistes and enough to freshen up the off piste as well.
Snow at resort level is a bit wet, but low temperatures at altitude overnight mean powder higher up. Another couple of falls like that should see great conditions in both resorts right through to the end of the season. For the time being this latest top up is great news for anyone heading out this week.
It's snowing in Alpe d'Huez!: 20th January 2012

We had plenty of snow in the first few weeks of the season, followed by wall to wall sunshine for over a week. This gave us the chance to take advantage of the fabulous conditions (and the seriously cold temperatures ensured everything stayed in peak condition). And now, the snow is back again to top up those powder levels!
The webcam still shows Alpe d'Huez this afternoon. The resort pistes in the background are barely visible, thanks to the inclement weather.
Snowfall is predicted to continue into the weekend with possible brighter spells next week. Hurrah!
