Weekly Snow Report and Events in the 3 Valleys

As the final week of the season gets nearer, the resort is winding down for a little “you time”, from the 1st of April to the 14th, Meribel is focusing on being “Zen” and what a way to do it…

“Zen Altitude” is a two week event in Meribel that you can get involved with. Think piste nap time, mountain Yoga, leisurely lunches, girl power freestyle days with local ski schools and Spa’s for relaxation and pampering with a mountain back drop. Anyone coming to resort this week and next, can get involved just sign up to any the activities scheduled in the “Zen Altitude” itinerary.

If you are less Zen and more adrenaline junkie there is still lots to do, snow conditions may appear Spring-like with lower slopes naturally fading as a result of warm temperatures, but above 1800m the snow conditions are still great! Pistes are quiet and sunshine is forecast nearly every day for the next week.  This is also prime-time for paraponting in the Alps. Light snow showers are expected  for Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday daytime. Sunshine for the rest of the week followed by more snow showers Monday to Wednesday next week.

Temperatures have slightly dropped this week with highs of 6 degrees and lows of – 2 degrees. The coldest wind chill is forecast at -5 allowing for the snow to re-freeze overnight for perfectly groomed pistes first thing in the morning!
