Tignes, Val d’Isère, Courchevel, Méribel, Val Thorens, Les Arcs and La Plagne, all affected.
The Tignes and Val d’Isère resorts were among the worst affected. With the avalanche risk at 5 (the highest risk level), visitors to Tignes were asked to stay indoors until around 11am on Thursday morning until given the all-clear. The ski area for both resorts was closed all day, with no lifts running, and the road to Bourg St Maurice was closed until late afternoon.
