Tignes Val d’Isere Snow Report & Weather Forecast – 23.03.18

Meteo Mike Snow Reports Tignes Val d'IsereBy Meteo Mike

Its over to Katrina and the Waves for the weather report in Tignes and Val D’Isere:

I’m walking on sunshine (Wow!)
I’m walking on sunshine (Wow!)
I’m walking on sunshine (Wow!)
And don’t it feel good

Quite apt really as it was wall to wall sunshine (with a chilly breeze at altitude all day) and we went for a skin over the Col du Palet. The snow on the north facing slopes is still in great condition, light and deep and relatively untracked. So we enjoyed it all the way down to Plan du Janin and then skinned back up to the Refuge for lunch served by the Gardien, Nico. Marvellous!

Tomorrow, the weather will be just about like today, perhaps a few more fluffy clouds in the afternoon. The cloud will thicken as all the new holidaymakers get off the bus but these should break up to leave sunny periods on Sunday morning. They will be a bit thicker in the afternoon and there may be the odd light shower of snow if enough clouds form over the border. Monday should start OK with a few clouds and a lot of sun before the clouds build up again and snow showers start in the afternoon. there will be a gusty wind at altitude which may close some lifts. Tuesday looks windy, snowy and cloudy and quite chilly – looks like spring has gone on hold!

As for the travel tomorrow, the roads will be clear and with 29000 vehicles arriving in the Tarentaise and 26000 leaving there should be fewer jams than in previous weeks. the lights will still be operating in the usual places at peak times. Leave early or late. If you are flying it looks like being a dank drizzly day in most of the UK, but not enough to affect flying. Over here there may be the odd shallow fog patch floating about, at the moment it should be OK to make an approach even at Chambery if this forms.
