Three Valleys Snow Report – Weekending 15/3/2014
What to say about a week like that? It was, quite simply, awesome.
Wall to wall sunshine, brilliant blue skies, mild temperatures for the season, all for 6 solid days. Skiing simply does not get any better than that!
However, the obvious question after such a spell of mild conditions then becomes how has the snow held up to the sunshine and warm weather. Guests arriving today though have no need to worry: there is still plenty of great snow to ski throughout the Three Valleys.
In fact, listening to experienced riders and instructors this week , they will say that the period between 10 30 and 3 on such sunny days – after the early morning chill has dissipated but before the lower slopes show too many signs of wear at the end of the day – offers some of the best conditions possible as the snow allows you to have confidence to go right onto your edges. And with the huge area of the three valleys, including the higher altitudes of the Burgin and Cote Brune sectors, and especially the VT valley, there is still great runs to be discovered for skiers of all abilities.
Amazingly, the great weather is set to continue into next week. While not quite hitting the heights of the last few days, those arriving today will still see plenty of sunshine through the early part of the week, with snow predicted for Thursday or Friday to top up the base again. It should be another great week of skiing in Meribel.
