Well this week is officially the busiest of the season In Tignes and Val D’isere according to the bookings people. So lets have a bit of Blur:
All the people
So many people
The photo shows the scene on the snow front in Tignes at 12 o’clock. Mobbed! There was some really thick cloud about today as you can see in the photo. As some stages you could only see 40m or so. At other times the sun came out from behind the cloud and visibility was good, but not for long! So off piste was out of the question so we had a lunchtime charge around the pistes which are in excellent condition after the recent top up. The temperature has dropped markedly (my thermometer has dropped 9 degrees between 10am and 4 pm). It is now snowing moderately.
So what can we say about the weather. COLD COLD COLD. Its time to think December/Jan temps. Tomorrow will be mostly sunny, some clouds may pop over from the east and there may be the odd flocon or two late afternoon. Meteo France are suggesting the warmest temperature will be -13 tomorrow so put all the layers you have on and then steal another from your room mate/partner/lover! Tuesday will be a bit more cloudy with the chance of a snow shower and it will be a degree or two colder. Wednesday is likely to be a day of milky clouds, the air will be a bit warmer but a breeze at altitude will negate any benefit. There is quite a lot of unsettled weather arriving for Thursday, it will be warmer, windier and snowier, so keep following for further details. Friday will be similar. Wrap up!!!
