Tignes Val d’Isere Snow Report & Weather Forecast – 02.03.16

Meteo Mike Snow Reports Tignes Val d'IsereBy Meteo Mike

There were a few rays of sun this morning and some good skiing early doors. But the cloud soon started to descend and after lunch the wind started to blow hard – this closed some of the higher lifts. The snow intensity has varied – currently it is moderate and could soon become heavy. Between today and tomorrow something like 35cm would be a mid-point guesstimate!

The snow and high winds will continue until tomorrow afternoon, so expect delayed openings and much blasting from about 6am. Also I imagine the high lifts will probably remain closed. By lunchtime the freezing level will have only made it as high as Bourg St Maurice, so a day of many layers and watch out for frost nip on exposed skin, because of the wind chill. Spring is most definitely not here – “froid de loup” – “as cold as the wolf” (?!? or maybe the chilling effect of a wolf’s cry) as one of the café owners describes it in Tignes Val Claret.

Friday will be a couple of degrees warmer and there will be less wind, especially lower down but it will be cloudy with light snow most of the day. Saturday will be a couple of degrees cooler and there will be snow showers through the day with maybe an odd glimpse of the sun. Snow tyres or chains looks like being the order of the day. Sunday looks more showery so a real mixed bag – detail is a little tricky at the moment.
