We awoke to a thin layer of cloud above Tignes – Val d’Isere, which has slowly marched down the hill. There are now a few flocons floating about which should continue through the evening until after midnight. Not surprisingly the pistes were in pretty much the same condition as yesterday.
By the time we all wake up in the morning the sky should be clear with a bright, cooler day to clear the remnants of the previous day’s excess from the head. It will cloud over late in the day and start snowing down to 1800m by midnight. Saturday will be snowy/rainy all day with a snowline slowly dropping down to 1300m, so by Sunday the pistes should be in much better condition. But this will make the trip out of resort slow unless you leave early (before 7) or late (after 1300). I suspect the police will be checking for chains…… The authorities are expecting 33,000 vehicles between Moutiers and Albertville on Saturday so stand by for queues.
Sunday looks like a better day with sunny periods, but cooler than of late. After that there is just a queue of fronts charging towards us from across the Atlantic. Monday will be mainly showery, Tuesday will be snowy and high, lift-closing windy on current forecasts. Beyond that more of the same, but the timing will change so it’s difficult to forecast. I still suspect that we will get somewhere between 50cm and 120cm over the next 10 days – not quite the exaggerated amounts touted by some apps.
