Going back to an old ‘Meatloaf’ song, ‘Two Out of Three Ain’t Bad’, pretty much sums up the weekend! Both Friday and Saturday were absolutely brilliant as we were treated to some unexpectedly good visibility. This gave us plenty of options and allowed us to navigate and ski positively off-piste.
The avalanche risk on Friday was 4/5 but we managed some great skiing in the trees and off the edge of the piste and with the risk at 3/5 on Saturday we opened up the Tour du Charvet in stunning snow. But Sunday was a totally different story! We had another 20-30cm during Saturday afternoon and overnight. With the wind howling at 120km/h to 140km/h the resort was once again in ‘shut-down’ mode. That makes 5 or 6 days of closures this season and it’s frustrating for just about everyone in town.
