Tignes Val d’Isere Snow Report & Weather Forecast – 19.02.17

Meteo Mike Snow Reports Tignes Val d'IsereBy Meteo Mike
Pretty much a piste day all round today, I saw very few folks off piste other than a few ‘skinners’. In general the pistes are in very good condition, but there are one or two slick areas that you have to keep an eye out for. But from Bellvarde, to the Grande Motte there were lots of holidaymakers enjoying the slopes of Tignes-Val D’Isere. Today was moderately busy, I expect tomorrow will be worse as the Sunday transfers join in and the ski schools start spreading their wings.After a cold night tomorrow will be pretty much like this afternoon, a little more cloud after lunch perhaps. After that it is getting a little harder to be precise as the high pressure keeps contracting and expanding. But Tuesday looks like it will be more cloudy in the morning and sun in the afternoon. A strong wind will also pick up above 2200m in the afternoon. Wednesday morning looks nice, but the wind will again pick up after lunch, threatening the opening of the high lifts, it will also be a good 3 or 4 degrees warmer. Thursday looks nice in the morning, deteriorating in the afternoon as the weather approaches. But the snow will not start until the early hours of Friday, there will be strong winds all day, and snow showers moving quickly across the sky. The snowline will start below resort levels but will creep up to 1900m in the morning before descending below Les Brevieres later. In the colder air and winds it will feel pretty much like winter has returned. Currently transfer days looks fine, but no promises, as ever.
