Courchevel Snow Report & Forecast

Discover the latest Courchevel snow conditions

Eliot Prince, Courchevel Reporter | Published

The last video report of winter 2019/20 from the slopes of Courchevel is an unusual one, as it's brought to you from our reporter Eliot's balcony. 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 SeeCourchevel.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, climbing, 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 Courchevel 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 Courchevel.

And the prize for the snowiest month of the season goes to... March! So far, it's snowed pretty much every day in Courchevel since the last week of February.

Just like we predicted in our last dump alert, Monday saw around 30cm of fresh snow on the higher slopes, taking the total of fresh snow over the weekend to around 1 metre. Tuesday and Wednesday were sunny but the snow returned on Thursday.

On Friday morning, we woke up to around 20cm on the slopes. The avalanche risk has risen to 4/5 and the local avalanche bulletin has warned of a very unstable snowpack due to the combination of wind, snowfall and rain, so stay safe out there!

A dusting of snow is on the forecast today. Saturday will be sunny but there's another snowstorm coming on Monday, with around 15cm expected to fall. The skies will remain mostly blue for the rest of the week.
