La Plagne Snow Report & Forecast

Discover the latest La Plagne snow conditions

Stuart Hamilton, La Plagne Reporter | Published

Once more, La Plagne has enjoyed another week of sunny skiing. However, the snow conditions remain pretty good on the slopes.

Things are changing as a new dump of snow is forecast tonight and over the weekend, with around 20-30cm expected to fall at mid-mountain level. After that, the sun will shine again.

Get in touch with our reporter Stuart Hamilton on his new site iRide, featuring videos, guides, playlists and more. Stuart also produces SnowGuruSnowGuruVRSnowboardApp and SkiApp – a range of Android skiing and snowboarding apps that improve your time in the mountains.

La Plagne Dump Alert - 18th January 2020

Snow started falling in La Plagne around midday yesterday, varying in intensity between light showers and full-on blizzards at times. Consequently, we’ve woken this morning to a glorious, fresh covering over the entire area – with the added bonus of bluebird weather and zero wind.

The last couple of weeks have seen a startling drought across most of the Alps but yesterday’s mini-storm has changed all that with freshly-groomed pistes and hidden powder-pockets awaiting those lucky enough to be here on a Saturday – normally the quietest day of the week. 

We have an estimated 5cm of fresh at 1250m, 8cm at 2000m and 14cm at 3000m. Granted, not the dump of the century but still enough to completely transform the mountains and, in essence, reboot our winter. Next week’s forecast suggests largely settled, sunny weather which, combined that with the fact January is pretty much the quietest time out here, should make for perfect riding conditions.


Get in touch with our reporter Stuart Hamilton on his new site iRide, featuring videos, guides, playlists and more. Stuart also produces SnowGuruSnowGuruVRSnowboardApp and SkiApp – a range of Android skiing and snowboarding apps that improve your time in the mountains.
