We’ve enjoyed an absolutely stunning week of weather, a little chilly at times due to a brisk northerly wind, but we’ve had nothing but wall-to-wall sunshine. The resort has been unusually quiet, down 13% according to the tourist office, but it seems much more than that, and with the clear blue skies it’s been paradise for those who are here to ski and board on piste.
The pistes have been groomed to perfection every night, and the snow quality has been brilliant. With the cool temperatures most pistes haven’t become too wet in the afternoon, so that it hasn’t been icy first thing in the morning. You can find icy pistes if you ski south facing slopes early in the day, but for the most part the piste quality has been excellent all day long.
