Tignes Val d’Isere Snow Report & Weather Forecast – 23.01.17

Meteo Mike Snow Reports Tignes Val d'IsereBy Meteo Mike
There was just the thinnest veil of cloud at very high altitude, which took the glare from the sun. As the wind had virtually disappeared it felt much warmer and as it had been less cold overnight the pistes were a bit softer than yesterdays boilerplate making life a little easier. Still it could have been much worse you- could have been at Heathrow watching your flight get cancelled due to fog! A group of like minded folk shot across to Le Fornet today, we did try and find some decent off piste but to no avail. After lunch we tried the Solaise (again very mixed conditions off piste as I can attest to – at least my bindings work!). Probably the best snow was to the southern side of Arcelle, quite grippy chalky stuff, parts of the piste were very slick. By the look on one ladies face as she slipped down on her rear quarters it could be responsible for a divorce!The weather until Saturday is dead easy – “The sun has got his hat on”. The air temperature will be similar to today but the winds will vary. They will pick up towards the close of play tomorrow, just keep an eye on the links. They look like being strong at altitude on Wednesday and Thursday also, making it feel cold. Friday and Saturday will be much more benign. Meanwhile in the south of the UK it will be foggy and cold, so relax and enjoy it!!
