The French Alps are set to see more snow fall this month than any other February on record, providing ideal conditions for people heading on ski weekends, one source has noted.

According to the advice site TravelBite, snowfall at some French stations has reached 4.78 metres, with resorts at heights of 1,600 metres having depths of 1.75 metres and higher resorts even more.

The source noted that this kind of snowfall has not been since 1966, which was one of the best years ever for skiing across Europe.

"The sheer depth and quality of the snow fall in the area will offer visitors excellent skiing conditions and snowsports enthusiasts are urged to take advantage of any last-minute offers offered by ski operators," the site added.

With fresh snowfall forecast for the coming week, particularly those resorts situated around the 2,000 metre mark, things are looking good for anybody heading on ski weekends soon.
