La Plagne Snow Report & Forecast

Discover the latest La Plagne snow conditions

Stuart Hamilton, La Plagne Reporter | Published

La Plagne has had a really mixed bag of weather once more this week. There has been snowy, overcast days and sunny, almost spring-like days.

This weekend will see more sunshine and warm temperatures while the winter is set to return next week, with temperatures dropping and more snow coming our way.

Watch as Stuart heads to Champagny to avoid the February half-term crowds.

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.

Cupid may be lining up arrows today but it was storm clouds that had the best aim yesterday in La Plagne. It snowed more or less all day – at times with white-out conditions – bringing around 25cm fresh snow to the hill.

Today, the sun has reappeared meaning we’ve got near perfect conditions – and all with the omnipresent sound of avalanche blasting in the background as the security crews work at making the hill safe. In this slightly topsy-turvy season where it seems nothing is predictable, this fresh snow will work wonders at refreshing our already substantial base.

The snow underneath is now pretty hard in places so expect some scoured spots in the very high traffic areas. However this new dump really is the most welcome Valentines gift and also arrives just in time for the start of the UK mid-terms.
