The skies cleared quite quickly this morning to leave a bright blue day. The odd bit of cloud did escape Italy on the southerly breeze (which was very chilly); at one stage the Panoramique restaurant looked like it had a beret of cloud on top of it. The pistes were a little more forgiving today as it had been warmer overnight, so a great day charging round the Aiguiile Percée sector in Tignes and then over towards the Grand Pré in Val d’Isere. All the pistes still have a great snow depth, it’s just the surface conditions that vary thanks to aspect and how much sun they get before the refreeze starts. There are patches of hardpack but only in areas of high traffic.
Tomorrow will be sunny throughout, the air will be 3 degrees or so warmer and the breeze at altitude should almost disappear, making it a great last day of the week. There may be the odd cloud on the high ridges. For those remaining Saturday will be the same, but there is a chance of mist in the early morning down the valley, hopefully not enough to disrupt the 29,000 vehicles leaving the valley between Moutiers and Albertville and the 27,000 coming up. Expect queues of traffic at peak times though. Sunday will start with a thin veil of cloud, but the sun should break through in the afternoon, before snow showers after dinner. These will continue through Monday with a variable snow line depending on the time of day. Tuesday and Wednesday look like being days of sunny periods and fluffy clouds.
