July Snow in the Alps.

Its the 11th of July and there has been snow falling in the French Alps for the PAST WEEK. Has the 2014/15 Ski season in Morzine kicked already!!!!

It’s July and here in Morzine we have just had 4 days of non-stop rain and its been cold. This is very unusual for a summer in the French Alps, as normally we would expect long periods of high pressure at this time, bringing endless sunny days and temperatures in the mid to high 20's. Instead we woke to the sight of snow in Avoriaz this morning! Is this the first snow of winter 2014/15?! Surely not!

We are forecast a few more days of rain and then back to glorious sun next week, phew! But in the meantime, a trip to one of the glacier resorts for some summer snowboarding could be in order!

If you are looking to book your winter ski season accommodation in Morzine then get in quick, this early dusting has got many people excited for the coming winter and apartments and chalets are selling like hot cakes, or snow cakes at the moment.
