Tignes Val d’Isere Snow Report & Weather Forecast – 08.04.17

Meteo Mike Snow Reports Tignes Val d'IsereBy Meteo Mike

 There was another hard frost last night under the cloudless skies, indeed the Face de Bellevarde was closed this morning while they waited for it to thaw a bit! A few clouds developed in the afternoon, but nothing to spoil the view. It was another day of searching for the spring snow, we had to wait a little longer today. However, because the Grattalu lift was having a day off due to mechanical gremlins it meant the Palet sector was blissfully quiet. Eventually the snow softened enough to have a couple of great runs under Grand Huit and then down from the eye of the needle. After that I disappeared off to the Altiport to the Aeroclub de Tignes ‘portes ouvertes’ (open day) where a collection of aircraft had flown in for a BBQ and a few (soft!) drinks. A really pleasant afternoon.Tomorrow will be a carbon copy of today, there may be a few clouds over Le Fornet in the afternoon. And, guess what, Monday will be the same! There may be the odd shower through the night into Tuesday, the sky will be obscured by a thin veil of cloud in the morning, this will break in the afternoon. The sun will be back in force on Wednesday but a stiff breeze may pick up in the afternoon. Looks like sunny periods until the end of the week.

For those travelling tomorrow, it will be like today, a bit hazy and a slim chance of fog at Gatwick and Stansted (where the fog did appear this morning causing delays). Over here will be FAB (fine and beaut), the roads will be much quieter.
