Val Thorens Snow Report & Forecast

Discover the latest Val Thorens snow conditions

Amelia Power, Val Thorens Reporter | Published

The last video report of winter 2019/20 from the slopes of Val Thorens is an unusual one, as it's brought to you from our reporter Amelia's house. Sadly, the ski season has been cut short quite abruptly due to the Coronavirus crisis but we wanted to give it the farewell it deserves.

The team at SeeValThorens.com is working hard to get everything ready for the summer season. Summer is a wonderful time in the mountains, with plenty of things to do from hiking to mountain biking, mountaineering, sightseeing or just relaxing in a spa or sunbathing on a bar's terrace. And, of course, the snow will return to the slopes of the Three Valleys next winter and we'll all be able to shred those pistes again, we'll just have to wait a bit longer this time.

So, goodbye for now and see you here in a few months! In the meantime, keep an eye on our site for the latest information from Val Thorens.

2020/21 Winter Season's first big fall

The Alps received a light but very welcome dusting of snow earlier this week. What seemed like a promising start, was confirmed by the deep blanket of fluffy powder that is now covering the mountains. Unfortunately, with the lifts closed in France, there's still not a lot many of us can do with it right now (although some of us will be touring up to enjoy the first fresh turns of the winter).

We still don't know exactly when the lifts will be able to operate this season in France, or when (and even if) international travel will be allowed this winter. Swiss resorts like Verbier, however, have been taking skiers and snowboarders up the slopes for a few weeks now, with a full opening scheduled this Saturday, December 5th.

Although the resorts are "open" and you could enjoy a white Christmas/New Year with a range of other mountain sports, the lifts are currently not allowed to operate. The French authorities are discussing an opening of the lifts early in the new year, and the season will hopefully be fairly normal from then on. We are expecting a further official announcement on the 11th December. With the easing of confinements, reduced caseloads, roll out of vaccinations and shortened quarantines on the horizon, it will becoming easier to travel as well.

Our ability to report on the snow conditions will be slightly limited this season, depending on where/how we can deploy our powder hounds. In these difficult times, we'd like to thank you for your continued support and, to those of you who book via our sites and make it over, an even bigger thanks!

Take care of yourselves and we very much hope to see you on the pistes soon.
