Happy Monday from a Winter paradise in Meribel and La Tania! The snow just keeps on coming in the 3 Valleys and we are ecstatic. Heavy snowfall has been non-stop since last night and is forecast to continue well into Tuesday. The skiing footage on this weeks video report was taken on Sunday (5th March) between 11am-1:30pm… O how the weather has changed! Nearly half a meter of snow has fallen and who can blame us for feeling like children on Christmas morning!
Snow and weather breakdown
The weather forecast is looking fabulous with heavy snow today and tomorrow. The sun will be beaming down Wednesday through to Friday, followed by snow again early next week and sunshine towards the end of the week.
Temperatures are looking promising over the next 7 days with highs of 6 degrees and lows of -10 degrees. The coldest wind chill is forecast at -19 on Tuesday evening… brrr chilly!
The Meribel valley currently has a reading of 65cm of snow at resort level (1450m) and 158cm at Altitude (2700m).
The Courchevel valley currently has a reading of 102cm at resort level (1850m) and 158cm at Altitude (2700m).
Avalanche risk is 4 out of 5 today, with this huge dump of snow we advise to not go off piste unless you are with a qualified guide.
We want to keep you up to date with weekly events and happenings in the 3 valleys so here are some of the best bits to get you in the winter holiday spirit…
