The avalanche risk will be 3 tomorrow, expect a progressive opening of the resorts, especially on the glaciers. There has just been some blasting as I type, so quite a lot of work for the pisteurs I think. Hopefully the weather will be kind for “Live in Tignes” by FrancoFolies, there will be a variety of bands and disco sets from Val Claret, to Le Lac to the Marais plateau. Head to our the events pages on our website for more info.
It has been snowing/sleeting all day in Le Lac, but we have just had a very heavy snow shower (about 5.30pm) so lets hope that continues for a bit. I popped out about 1.30pm for a short while, I got as high as 2747m, where the snow was still damp and melting off the chairlift and onto my helmet. Of course, it will depend on what happens tonight as to the quality of the snow off piste in the morning. But the pistes above 2000m should be good as the depth will have improved, lower down – debateable as it has been drizzle in Brevieres all day. So can’t have improved things.Tomorrow will be a much nicer day, the snow will stop this evening sometime, the wind will drop by breakfast time and the sun will come out. The clouds will build on the peaks and may get big enough to give a light shower or two in the afternoon, but nothing to spoil the day. It will be cooler than last week. Tuesday will be pretty much the same as Monday. Wednesday will start clear and sunny with a few fluffy clouds on the mountain tops later. Thursday will be similar, but some forecasts are tending to very strong winds and others aren’t!
