Tignes Val d’Isere Snow Report & Weather Forecast – 13.12.16

Meteo Mike Snow Reports Tignes Val d'IsereBy Meteo Mike

Blue skies again, with the odd bit of very high cloud. A great day for charging around the pistes of Tignes-Val D’Isere. The three musketeers charged off to Le Fornet via an Olympique download and up the Solaise. The snow in Le Fornet was excellent, and the place was deserted save for the British Infantry who were race training at the side of the T Bar. We did see one or two people off piste but mainly in groups hiking a long way for freshies. We did ski back down into Val (mainly because the Solaise Gondola stopped for around 40 minutes), again sharp edges and a modicum of technique required.

The avalanche forecasting marmotte has emerged from hibernation in Bourg St Maurice, not surprisingly the risk is level 1 below 2700m, and 2 above that.

For the forecast tomorrow and Thursday will be identical to today, just the odd bits of high cloud. Friday and Saturday will be similar with a hint of a breeze and perhaps fog down the valleys. We are expecting a few more clouds on the peaks on Sunday. Last night the forecasts were predicting snowfall on Monday with a depression over the Gulf of Girona, giving us a potential ‘retour d’est’ (which brought all the snow nearly 3 weeks ago). Sadly, this depression has now moved south, but it may change its mind. Perhaps if we all breathed in deeply at the same time……
