Avoriaz snow report 18.01.2013

Here is the latest snow report from our team in Avoriaz.

There is around 250cm of snow at the top of the Avoriaz ski area and about a metre of snow by the roads. Around 15cm fell at resort level over Wednesday night and Thursday night (16th and 17th).

All 109 beautiful pistes are open today, 650km and 33 of 34 Avoriaz lifts are open.

Nothing but clear blue skies and sunshine predicted for the next few days, with cool temperature to protect the snow. Perfect skiing weather!

The conditions in resort are perfect at the moment. The recent snowfall has left the pistes covered in glorious soft powder, being kept fresh by excellent preparation. The Swiss wall right at the top of resort remains an amazing slope, with huge soft moguls offering a challenge for even the most advanced skiers.

This week sees the return of Basscamp sessions, the thumping Drum and Bass apres ski sessions hosted by the remarkable DJ Cheeba, taking place at the tremplin at the base of the Plenay and across the clubs and pubs of Avoriaz and Morzine.
