Tignes Val d’Isere Snow Report & Weather Forecast – 09.01.17

Meteo Mike Snow Reports Tignes Val d'IsereBy Meteo Mike

 Another day of blue skies and sunshine, if a little chilly with the sharp breeze at altitude. I had a charge round the pistes of Tignes today, they were mostly quite hard requiring decent edges. However, the snow on Leisse was beautiful, the moguls at the bottom less so. We also seem to have had an invasion of students from Durham over the weekend.The weather forecasts for the week continue to fluctuate wildly, each run of the models throws up a different set of conditions and forecast snow amounts, but it looks a bit more positive on the snow side today. Anyway, with yesterday’s warning about changes ringing in my ears here goes:

The cloud will thicken overnight and through the morning and we should see some snow starting at around lunchtime, the winds will pick up through the afternoon and it will be bitterly cold, just watch out for the links closing and expect whiteout conditions from mid afternoon onwards, expect somewhere in the range of 5-15cm of snow. Wednesday looks like a day of sunny periods and a strong breeze, and there will be a bit more snow overnight. Thursday will start OK with sunny periods but the cloud will thicken through the day and the winds will pick up ahead of the storm on Friday. On Friday there will be a lot of fast moving showers of snow, we will see the sun occasionally, but on Friday and Saturday we are currently expecting significant snowfall, it would appear winter is arriving at last!
