The Vosges region, one of the lower mountain area for ski resorts in the country has received a particularly notable covering of up to 50cm (20 inches) at 1,200m. At Gerardmer, one of the region's leading ski areas, Fabrice Clair, manager of the resort, told Skiinfo,
"It has snowed more than 50cm on one day, greatly increased the snow depth which had been very thin at the beginning of winter. It's now 1.2m (4 feet) in place thanks to artificial snow, but there is an average layer of natural snow from 50 to 60cm over the entire ski area."
Across France as a whole Chamonix Mont-Blanc has the top snow depth of 4m (13.3 feet) with Oz en oisans and Vaujany below Alpe d'Huez at 3.2m (10.6 feet), Flaimne and La Clusaz have 2.9m
