From my balcony there was not a cloud to be seen over Tignes and Val D’Isere this morning, but that was not the full story as it wasn’t the full ‘Dame Vera’. There was a thin layer of cloud over the border with Italy which gradually drifted across towards Tignes. We now have a milky sky. What was notable – the temperature – it was chilly all day, so much so it felt like January on the chin. I had a day on piste, for the time of year they are in excellent condition, no hints of rocks at the top of Isolée, no signs of re-frozen slush in La Daille – all just great for an Easter break should the Boss and the wallet allow it! Today’s photograph is from the top of the Borsat Chairlift. Also it does seem very quiet on the slopes this week, OK the whole resort is open but it seems less busy than the number of cars forecast for the weekend suggested.
We may wake tomorrow to find a milky sky but it should break up to leave a sunny morning. Clouds will bubble up during the day, it will be a couple of degrees warmer but a stiff northerly breeze in the afternoon will make it seem like today. Friday will be another couple of degrees warmer and mainly sunny, there is the possibility of a few clouds mainly in the morning. The forecast for Saturday has changed, the approaching weather seems to have slowed down and gone a bit further south. So essentially we will have a day of sunny periods with more spring like temperatures, which is great all round really. Sunday, on the other hand, looks like being showery with sunny periods but that forecast is subject to change!
