Tignes Val d’Isere Snow Report & Weather Forecast – 26.01.17

Meteo Mike Snow Reports Tignes Val d'IsereBy Meteo Mike
Well, I did mention yesterday that I wouldn’t be held to the forecast – a good job as there was a lot more cloud than any of the forecasts suggested! It started creeping over from the east fairly early on and although there were a few breaks where there was good light it was mainly flat. The wind did shut the Grande Motte cable car from the outset. It has now started blowing hard in the village as I type. The air felt damp so it wasn’t the most pleasant of days. The pistes were hard to begin with, but softened as the day went on. But there has been just a small amount of snow.After a windy night, tomorrow will be predominantly cloudy and there will be a stiff breeze. This should reduce in strength over the course of the day. Saturday will also be cloudy and a strong wind will return. It doesn’t look appealing at all! Sunday and Monday will be days of sunny periods, a bit changeable and a bit breezy at altitude. Beyond that it is all up for debate, but currently we are expecting some snow showers. By day the snow level will be around 2000m, probably not the news the lower resorts want. Luckily up here in Tignes and Val D’Isere it will not make a difference.
