France - Ski Resort Opening Dates

Opening and Season Dates for French Ski Resorts

When do Ski Areas open in France?

The table below gives the planned opening dates for a number of French ski resorts.

Please Note :- All Ski Areas are subject to rapidly changing snow, weather and road conditions - and other operational constraints - and actual opening dates and times often change considerably from planned.

You can find the reported and forecast snow and weather for France on J2Ski, but you should always double-check the latest conditions with the Tourist Office before travelling.
