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.
