After yesterday’s exertions and a fairly boozy Strictly Final Party, today was a very gentle morning on pistes. There is still lots of good skiing between the poles, for off piste we will have to wait for new snow. There was a nasty accident in the Val Park this morning, so much so the Park team have been appealing on social media for folks to read and follow the rules.
And now the forecast – the high pressure system is finally breaking down. But the charts are a mess so accurate predictions are going to be difficult. The sky will progressively cloud over tomorrow, but there will be some sunny periods. But it will be windy especially later in the day, expect the high lifts to close and keep an eye on the links status. The air will also be colder, so with the wind chill it will feel Baltic compared with today. Wrap up warm. As the light goes there may be the odd flocon in the wind. Currently, Tuesday looks like a proper winter’s day with snow and wind (there may be a brief glimpse of sun in the afternoon). As the weather is coming from the east, any forecast of snow depth is likely to be wrong, but Le Fornet will get more than Tignes Les Brevieres, such is the nature of this particular weather beast. Wednesday will be much the same as Tuesday but I would not be surprised if that forecast changes tomorrow. The 3 days after that would appear to be more benign with sunny periods. Christmas looks a bit blowy with some more snow.
