It’s been like winter this week in the 3 valleys! It started off with about 25cm of snow down in Meribel on Saturday and it has been cold ever since. It has been mostly a mixture of sunshine and cloud the rest of the week with snow flurries here and there but no more than a few centre meters. But still enough to keep the slopes freshened up
As it has been cold the slopes have stayed in pretty good condition with the snow cannons being able to do their job as well. The runs that are in the shade have been getting a bit icy later on in the afternoons. All the inter resorts links are open also runs back into the resorts are open.
The forecast into next week is for the temperatures to stay cold and get even colder as the week goes on. Snow-wise, there is some forecasted for Saturday and then again on Tuesday but again, only a couple of . In the longer term it looks like there will be a big storm arriving towards the end of next week 29th January. There is still a whole week ahead of us so it might change, but lets stay hopeful!
It’s been some of the best ski conditions of the season so far with some fresh powder and cold temperatures. Hopefully there will be more snow to come this week! I had some freestyle lessons with Johno from Cab9 Snowboard School in Meribel and he said it’s going to snow all week! I’m not sure how factual that is or if it’s just his is optimistic view but I hope he is right!
