Les Arcs Snow Report, 05 March 2010

Les Arcs Cable CarThere is a snow depth of 220cm at 3300m at Aiguille Rouge and 110cm at 2000m with 5cm falling yesterday!

Snow fell in Les Arcs throughout the day yesterday, topping up the snow levels nicely. The protection offered by the trees above 1600, Peisey and Vallandry have proved an always popular choice for skiers trying to find the most sheltered skiing during snowfall.

The Les Arolles red run and the Mont Blanc blue run, both above 1600, have proved popular as ever during the snow with sheltered skiing and quiet fantastic snow almost always assured.

The next couple of days are forecast to be two of the best weather days of the season so far. Clear skies and sunshine are due for the entire Paradiski area. Temperatures are due to be bitterly cold however so don’t let the clear skies fool you and make sure everyone is wrapped up very warm.

The new initiative by the ESF to put on a freestyle demonstration and torchlit descent every Tuesday has proved extremely popular. Crowds have been gathering in mass to see the instructors show off their best tricks, with noone going home disappointed.

Conditions at Allalin are fantastic with just over 229cm of hard powder. A long heavy fall of snow over the last 24 hours has left the top of the mountain thick with powder.

The lower slopes are in great condition with 86cm of snow covering the nursery slopes. This helps massively when practicing turns on the lower slopes and makes learning to ski so much fun!
