Early yesterday evening the pisteurs started blasting around Tignes’ Lavachet Wall, Trolles and the ‘Fingers’ so there was lots of avalanche debris to look at. There will be more off piste as the snow gets heavier and wetter with the warm temperatures. Today was very windy and generally overcast with the odd bright interval. The snow was soft wherever we went, which initially was low to get out of the wind. There is still a deep snowpack down to Tignes Les Brevieres so it doesn’t matter where you are staying next week – there is a lot of snow. Up higher we did have some snow/ice pellets which were not that pleasant to say the least. Even late afternoon, it was soft rather than slush.
The wishy-washy weather continues. Tomorrow will be similar to today but the wind will be less gusty until the afternoon. The showers are more likely to be in the afternoon but the snow level will be around 2400m so it may be better to have an early start in the morning. Monday will be very similar to today; windy, gusty and the chance of a shower all day. Tuesday looks like being windier and showery but with a better chance of seeing the sun. The snow showers will generally be coming from the South-East so Le Fornet in Val d’Isere will be favourite for more snow. Wednesday currently appears better with less wind and sunny periods. After that it will get quite a bit cooler and there is a reasonable chance of some precipitation late on in the week.
If you are flying tomorrow, there currently appears to be few weather issues to cause issues. There is a chance of a shower anywhere in the UK – they could be a bit thundery around the London area in the afternoon. Leeds Bradford looks quite unpleasant in the morning with rain and fog, if it is thicker than forecast then there could be the odd delay. Over here in the Alps there should be no problems.
