The season is almost upon us and the snow is on its way. This weekend we could see up to 70 cm of snow in the Three Valleys and as the temperature is set to drop it means that the snow will stick around. Here is our round up of the snow forecasts for this weekend in the Alps.
This map from Snow-Forecast.com shows that the Three Valleys can expect between 40 and 70 centimetres of snow on Saturday!
Other forecasters are in agreement.
Meribel is set to open on the 5th of December and Val Thorens was due to open on the 21st of November. Due to the current poor snow conditions and the massive snowfall that is predicted for this weekend Val Thorens has decided to postpone the opening until the 28th as they believe that they will need the week to prepare the slopes.

More snow is expect in the coming weeks which could mean that the start of the season will be full of amazing powder days.
There are some great deals on ski holidays to the Three Valleys for the beginning of the season.
