WATCH – Henry’s Avalanche Talk French Alps Snowpack Report

Mountain Safety

Avalanche expert Henry Schniewind, of Henry’s Avalanche Talk, brings us a report on the current snow conditions in the Northern French Alps, particularly around the Val d’Isère area.

Henry says: “All the new snow we have received in the last few days in the N French Alps (65-75 cm at 2000 m much more or less depending on exposure to wind) is sitting on a very weak layer(s) of snow in many places and on many slope aspects. Here are some thoughts and advice for the next few, mainly clear days.”

Henry’s Avalanche Talk (HAT) provides off piste training and essential information for skiers and snowboarders who may have previously felt held back by a lack of knowledge or confidence.
