Dump Alert for Les Arcs

Les Arcs Dump Alert: 8th December 2017

The significant amount of snow we received overnight at all altitudes, continues to fall this morning. However, this pre-season influx of powder is not scheduled to stop for days. We are anticipating periodic heavy blizzards until at least Wednesday, with only very short breaks in the snowfall expected before then.

Due to the frequent and significant dumps of snow in Les Arcs since the start of November, the pistes were already in very good order. The temperatures have stayed low and regular precipitation has helped to create a significant snow base from Arc 1600 (42cm depth recorded) to the top of the Aiguille Rouge (3226m altitude, 135cm depth). However, the arrival of considerable snow this week is getting everyone very excited. We can look forward to, not only the best start in many years but, a long and snowy season from opening day deep into April 2018.

As mentioned, the snowfall is likely to continue throughout the week with the freezing level fluctuating quite significantly every day. Today the flurries are persistent, with around 10cm of new snow already lying in valley-level Bourg St Maurice (800m). Forecasts suggest that, by the end of the week, the mountainside resorts can reasonably expect over a metre of fresh powder to settle before the lifts open on Saturday 16th December. It’s a great time to be in Les Arcs and a great time to be alive. Woohoo!
