Back again after a few days of being very remiss with the blog.
In general the weather has been a fair bit better than we expected this week, with some very decent sunshine and some respectable spring temperatures. The snow on the lower slopes is definitely pretty hard in the early mornings and pretty slushy in the late afternoons, but still skiable, and there’s masses of it. However, above 2,000m the snow has stayed in super condition and I would defy anyone to complain about it!
I haven’t personally skied higher than the Cretes this week (had beginners in the mornings), but up there it’s quite fabulous.
On sunday (10th) I took a series of photos from the viking poma in town:
Today I was up there on the Cretes and took this photo of La Muzelle poking her head through the clouds:
We’re now in the middle of some nasty freezing fog (temperature inversion I suspect), but it’s like a pea-souper out there – I’ve just been out in the car and had to put the fog lights on!
heavy snow is forecast for Sunday night – yippee! however I’d really prefer to have a goodly bit just before Easter for all the Hot Shots to ski in. We’ve been a bit poor in the powder department at Easter the last couple of years.
