The weather

Mottaret is on roughly the same latitude as Bordeaux and so still has the beautiful blue skies and but being at 1700 metres it is a few degrees cooler.    Have a look at the Summer Webcams and read the daily Weather Report.  If you have skied in late April you will know that it can get pretty hot (it reached 23c at 2300m on 1st April 2001).  The temperature continues to rise to peak in mid summer in July and August.  The temperature can easily exceed 30c.  Generally the weather is sunny and very hot, though being in the mountains it is cooler than lower in the Savoie region.  To see the current weather conditions visit the summer webcam page.
