Spring has sprung – at least temporarily. Today was spent cruising the pistes around Bellvarde and the Solaise in Val d’Isere. The snow depths are still great but some of the pistes were a little scraped. Those pistes in the sun for most of the day are now getting soft by lunchtime (eg Bluets from the Chaudannes down to Tignes Le Lac) but even by late afternoon they are white rather than that funny slushy colour. So plenty of snow for an Easter late booking.
Tomorrow will be like today – blue skies all day and maybe a degree or two warmer. Both Sunday and Monday will be spring-like with sunny periods and bubbly clouds, especially around the peaks. Tuesday through Thursday will be one or two degrees cooler, again sunny spells with fluffy clouds – one or two of which will give showers. What arrives at ground level will depend on the time of day but it will always be snow above 2500m. After that it all becomes a little unpredictable…..
For those flying tomorrow, there will be no weather problems in the UK to affect flying. Over here, there may be some mist down the valleys, this shouldn’t be dense enough to affect driving or at the airports. There is a slim chance of fog at Grenoble, but not dense enough to cause problems. Chambery are going for hazy conditions early on and if that were to thicken a bit more than the forecast then there could be one or two delays until the sun burns it off. But all in all it should be fine. Don’t worry that it’s all green down the valley when you arrive – the winter wonderland is still in good order.
