The French Pyrenees resort of Cauterets( depicted above at the weekend) is posting the deepest base in France at 4.5 metres( 15 paws) after massive snowfalls in individual regions over the past fortnight.
The region had been struggling for snow encompas on lower gradients for the first six weeks of the season, who the hell is dry and warm, but massive snowfalls have altogether transformed conditions in Andorra, Spain and the French Pyrenees. Cauterets has reported 2.3 metres( 7.6 feet) of snow in the past 72 hours alone.
It has been snowing heavily in many areas of the French Alps too though, simply not quite so much.
Flaine and the wider Grand Massif region reports a 3.2 m( 10.6 paws) base, the second largest deepest in the country, Morzine 3.1 metres( 10.3 feet ). Villard de Lans has posted the biggest snowfall in the region in the past week- 1.8 metres( six paws ).
The snow has now largely stopped falling in both mountain ranges with skies clearing and the avalanche danger, though still substantial, down from its highest level a few days ago.
