After an amazing one-month stretch of almost uninterrupted beautiful, sunny, bluebird days with perfectly groomed quiet pistes it’s snowing again. Actually it’s a blizzard with very high winds from the northeast which have already delivered about 40cm of fresh pow on the lower, less windy slopes while it’s quite difficult to know what’s fallen on the higher slopes because of the high winds but reports suggest
The best slopes to ski yesterday were under the La Daille Gondola if you didn’t want to face the blizzard down from the Funival, and in La Fornet as well as the lower Solaise area. Today should bring another 10 to 20cm of snow with 18km/h to 60km/h winds and -12Cº to -5Cº.
For the next seven days, we are expecting another 114cm of pow with much less wind. Snow depths before this fresh fall were 190cm on the upper slopes and 100cm on the lower slopes. Avalanche risk is currently at 3/5 but will probably increase as the wind accumulates snow and slabs on to the mostly hard and smooth base off-piste.
Enjoy the snow, be safe and see you on the slopes!
