Exceptional snow cover

Due to its proximity to Mont-Blanc, Arêches-Beaufort benefits from exceptional snow cover for its altitude. Most of the slopes in the ski area are oriented towards the north side, this makes it easy to conserve snow and at the same time limits the production of artificial snow. Its location at the bottom of the valley protects it from the winds and stops the course of the clouds which deposit their flakes from the villages to the top of the Grand-Mont.

In some years when snow is scarce in the other valleys, Arêches-Beaufort therefore benefits from its microclimate! A bailiff even came to see the amounts of snow in 1989 and 1993.

This makes it a benchmark destination for modern freeriders looking for powder. On fresh snowy days, we jostle at the opening of the lifts to make the first tracks!
