The precipitation was light thankfully in Tignes and Val D’Isere as we have had everything going past the window, rain sleet and snow. It has been windy and warm all day and you can visibly see how much the snow has settled on the roofs and lots of water has disappeared down the gutters. So the oven got its end of season deep clean and the gym exercised the non skiing muscles! Still there was lots of brave souls out on the soft pistes. As I can’t think of any songs with oven cleaning in we will have to do without and settle for an archive picture, clearly they had lots of snow way back when, the roads seem to be a little wider too!
The conundrum that is tomorrow is not resolved so the best advice is too look out of the window, it will be windy but as to how much cloud and precipitation I don’t know. It will be a little cooler than today so if it snows it will start getting moist below the Dam. There could well be sunny periods or it could be pretty much like today. But the high pistes will be very firm initially, lower down they will be soft. Thursday will be a bit cooler with light snow showers in the morning giving way to sunny periods in the afternoon, but there will be less wind so probably not a bad day. High pressure arrives for Friday – blue skies, sunshine and warm temperatures a great last day for most. Saturday will be even warmer with quite a few fluffy white clouds drifting across the sky, but plenty of sun. The wind will pick up late afternoon heralding the arrival of more cloud and showers overnight.
