Tignes Val d’Isere Snow Report & Weather Forecast – 16.04.16

Meteo Mike Snow Reports Tignes Val d'IsereBy Meteo Mike

After quite a heavy snow shower over breakfast there was more than enough light to ski around. There was a sharp wind at altitude but the new snow above 2800m allowed us a few shallow fresh tracks. The pistes soon softened so it’s definitely the time of year for an early finish.

The wind has now decided to die down overnight but tomorrow will be cloudy and showery all day. There may be the odd glimpse of the sun from the highest bits of Tignes – Val d’Isere. The snowline will start the day at 2300m dropping to 1800m by the time the lifts close. There is a chance of a thunderstorm around the middle of the day. The wind returns for Monday and after snow showers at dawn it should be a day of sunny periods but the air will be markedly colder. On the other hand, Tuesday will be very warm and sunny before Wednesday and Thursday get even hotter with sunny periods and the risk of a thunderstorm in the afternoons.

Tomorrow will be a benign day weather wise for flying in the UK – over here not too bad but there is always the chance of a sharp shower with a gusty wind and it will be bumpy around them. Also, there is still a chance of a thunderstorm almost anywhere over here. For those driving or being driven to Geneva – don’t forget the Annecy Marathon!
