Another day under blue skies on deserted pistes – ahhhhhhh. Both resorts are busy making snow at higher levels to top up the pistes, which can mean some interesting contours on the slopes during the day before the mighty piste bashers beat them into submission overnight. Indeed the FIS World Cup training was delayed in Val whilst an errant bump was shaved off the course. We had a hurtle round the Palet sector, all but the last 100m into resort is in great nick. A trip to the Grand Pre area followed, there is still some soft snow to the sides of the piste. Clearly this is now all tracked out.
I think I will leave the forecast to Katrina and The Waves – We will be ‘walking on sunshine’ from now until the middle of next week. The high pressure has strengthened further and so it will be like today for another 5 or 6 days at least. Tomorrow will be a couple of degrees warmer, it will then cool down a bit. A light breeze may disturb the flags over the weekend. There are some signs it will be a bit more unsettled from mid week next week, but don’t hang your hat on that forecast.
