It snowed last night and this morning, before gradually clearing up as the afternoon continued. Above the telecabine there is a lot of fresh snow and although on the piste front where the ground has warmed up recently this will disappear quite quickly, it does mean a nice top up for next week.
Everywhere was ‘off piste’ today and it will be a couple of days before the bashers smooth everything out. This afternoon was just a fun time with almost everyone ending up face first at some point. Certain areas will remain closed for a day or two because of avalanche risk at this time of the season, but the snow in the trees looks lovely and very Narnia like…
Tomorrow will start cold and then sunshine will dominate so it should be a great day with fresh snow and blue skies. The weekend is forecast to be partially cloudy with the possibility of some very weak showers, before the sun comes out again on Monday and it becomes somewhat colder. The remainder of the week is expected to be a mixture of cloud and clear periods, with isolated showers and the rain/snow line around 1500m, so village level.
All looks good for our last week of the season. The roads are clear and shouldn’t present any problems for those driving. We’re looking forward to seeing lots of old friends again and welcoming some new clients to Val Cenis. The winter has flown by and it seems only yesterday we were looking forward to starting another season.
Tempus does indeed fugit when you’re having fun!
