Another glorious morning – just a little cooler than yesterday but as soon as we got up the mountain you could see the cloud cover to the North associated with the weather up there. To the South – just sun. Luckily we stayed in the sun most of the day, but a breeze picked up after lunch. The pistes were a bit hard this morning after a night under the stars but all in all they are still good. We started around Tignes’ Grand Pre and after coffee we decided to head for Val d’Isere’s Le Fornet, luckily we chose the bus to Laisinant as there had been a power failure on the Solaise with Glacier Express, so Madeleine and Cugnai were all shut. Having spoken to another group the diesel engine on the Cugnai was doing a more than passable imitation of the Flying Scotsman.
As ever the snow on piste was great in Le Fornet – though the off piste cover is thin over there. We did a lap of each open piste. After lunch, it was a quick cruise home and a game of dodgeball on Trolles!
Tomorrow should see a bit more cloud, a degree or two drop in temperature and a light breeze. There might be a light shower in the early hours of Friday morning; the cloud will then clear to give a sunny day. Saturday will be a mix of sun and sunny periods and another degree or two cooler. Sunday is then the tricky one – it still looks like the main band of precipitation will pass just to the north of us and we will be left with light showers of snow down to 1900m, but we will cop for the high winds associated with the weather to the North. On Monday the temperature will rise through the day and the cloud will progressively clear ahead of mixed weather for the rest of the week.
