Tignes Val d’Isere Snow Report & Weather Forecast – 07.12.16

Meteo Mike Snow Reports Tignes Val d'IsereBy Meteo Mike

 

The only difference with the weather today was a light south easterly breeze and a little less cloud at altitude. I think it is now fair to say that the official “going” on most of the pistes is “good to firm” in horse racing parlance. That said there are still very few people around and there is still some good skiing around, decent edges are becoming a requirement though. With the warming and refreezing the conditions off piste have deteriorated a little. There is a distinct temperature inversion at the moment (ie cooler as you descend as opposed to the other way around). It was +7 deg in Tignes as I drove down the hill to Bourg where it was +2; There was also some spectacular hoar frost in the trees that had been in the shade all day down there.

The high pressure system has reasserted itself so there is no sign of a break in the weather for a week at least. It will be sunny all week with varying amounts of high altitude thin cloud, but nothing to spoil the view. It is going to be even more unseasonably warm over from Friday to Sunday (3-4 degs warmer) before returning to todays temperatures on Monday. The breeze may be a little stronger over the weekend.
