Where to Ski or Board in France in May 2018

STORY BY Patrick Thorne 30th April 2018

Although a few ski areas like Chamonix and Val d’Isere stretched their winter seasons to Tuesday, May 1st, that was the last day of the season for them, leaving only two French resorts to stay open a little longer in to May.

Tignes will be staying open to the end of the ski day next Sunday, May 6th.  Even though temperatures have been above freezing up at the summit of its ruins at 3450m, it reports almost all of its terrain remains open with more than a metre of snow lying in resort and 2.3m (nearly eight feet), up on the glacier.

Val Thorens will go on a further 48 hours, closing on Tuesday May 8th, the last ski area in France for winter 17-18.  Here again most of the slopes are still open and the snow is lying 2-3 metres deep.

Lift-served French skiing will return on June 3rd when Val d’Isere re-opens for summer skiing.
