Another beautiful morning in Tignes and Val D’Isere this morning, a few degrees warmer than yesterday, but the cloud started to fill in and it is now overcast. The pisteurs have been hard at work and Merles chairlift opened in Tignes this morning with Piste Lac. This is all natural snow so it was in superb condition with some nice soft patches to the sides, but I did find a rock so ski – off piste with caution or old skis!
The weather forecast over the next few days will be difficult to pin down exactly as a series of weak fronts and troughs complicate the picture, so take this forecast as a trend rather than a certainty! The cloud will continue to thicken and we are expecting light showers of snow just after dark and this should continue throughout tomorrow, there won’t be much snow and no sun either. The light snow showers should continue into Thursday but the sun will make an appearance on Thursday afternoon. Friday will be a day of sunny periods and showers. Currently Saturday looks like being sunny but the start of Baltic like temperatures by day.
