This page shows the readings transmitted by Meteo France's network of automatic high-altitude weather stations - known as "Nivose" weather stations - in real time. This information is particularly useful for off-piste skiers.
The wind readings are a useful indicator of whether or not wind slabs may have formed in the last few days.
Temperature readings are a useful indicator for assessing the state of the snowpack.
Depending on the altitude, snowfall readings are a useful indicator for assessing the depth of the snowpack.
