SEASON 2011/12: Some Stats

Although there wasn't a huge amount of snow during the second half of the season, the huge falls between mid-December and mid-January make this one of the best for some time, and there are great conditions in the Northern Alps for the last few weeks of the season.  It's not clear yet how good the season has been from a business point of view - but the good snow cover has clearly helped.

At one point, Les Arcs claimed to have the highest snow-depths in the world, and it was competing against Tignes/Val d'Isere as to who could open the access roads the quickest.
