In the past years we had an hard time in December, as the snowfalls weren’t coming that often. But this November we had already a good snowfall, about 50 centimeters of fresh powder fell recently in the French Alps. In areas like Tignes it’s already possible to ski, Val d’Isère is getting ready and it looks great as well as Sainte Foy Tarentaise. The most part of the resorts are opening the 25th November, including 3Valleys, Espace Killy, Paradiski and many more.

The old mountaineers say that snow in November means it’s going to be a great season. The temperatures just got really cold already, the nights are freezing around -10C°!

Ride Your Time ski touring

Ride Your Time experts are already on the mountains, we are skiing in the glacier and making some nice ski-touring around Espace Killy. These are the pictures of the actual conditions up-there. It’s possible to sk already, but some more snowfalls are needed in order to cover also the lower areas of the ski resorts. The artificial snow production is also going great as the temperatures are keeping cold.

So don’t hesitate to book your winter holiday.

If you come here, we assure you will properly Ride Your Time!
