Are snow conditions still good in the Alps?

Well, the snow was good, but weather conditions not so. Monday and Tuesday were pretty blizzards, with lots of snow. Anyone skiing in the next few days is in for a treat: lovely snow and empty slopes!

The top here today was lovely, so fingers crossed it lasts for you!

Oh well. Fingers crossed Flaine will be OK at the top; it's always slushy at the bottom when we go anyway.

1550 to 2620. Forecast is warm with a bit of rain this week. Conditions are OK at the moment, but can imagine they will be rather pants next week. They do snow cannon a lot, but it's only a sticking plaster over the patches!

Oh no. How high is Ste Foy?

Very sunny now and i think snow will melt fast over the next few days, as it's forecast to be 10-11 degrees every day and no new snow...

Friend arrived in Innsbruck yesterday and has posted a few very snowy photos grin

We are in Ste-Foy right now and they are great! Even some sun today.

Got back from Italy yesterday, and you could still ski right down to the valley where we were. Big fall of fresh snow on Thursday night. Obviously places do vary, but if you're going somewhere reasonably high I think you should be fine unless there's a heatwave this week.

We are going to Flaine on Thursday, so fingers crossed.

Depends whereabouts. We are in La Rosiere at the moment and there has just been another dumping. Good skiing here!! However as we drove up there was not much snow lower down.

Just that really...we are about to book a last minute holiday, and hoping the snow is still good!
