The weather was not appealing in Tignes and Val D’Isere this morning, snowy, cloudy and windy. So it was time for a few end of season jobs; but by lunchtime things had improved dramatically and the sun was out with a few clouds on the peaks. Most of the new snow had arrived at high speed last night so off piste it was quite compacted but there was a good deal of fun to be had. The pistes are still in excellent condition, it was only late afternoon before it became soft in the last 100m or so into La Daille. The Grande Motte was looking resplendent this afternoon.
Tomorrow will start sunny and a few clouds will bubble up during the day, but nothing to spoil Easter Monday’s skiing. It will be about 8 degs warmer and there will be little wind, so a few less layers would be a plan. The terraces will be full tomorrow! After a warm night Tuesday looks like a day of problems for the pisteurs, windy, warm and showers of rain up to 23 or 2400m by day. The showers wont be heavy – but unpleasant of you catch one below the snowline. The exposed lifts will be shut. Wednesday does not look good, a few degrees cooler but there will be heavy showers all day and some may be thundery with very blustery winds, it will be snow down to 1900m. A day not to venture too far from home on the current forecast. Thursday will also be windy with light showers in the morning and sun in the afternoon. The temperature then ramps up for a sunny and summery weekend.
