Les Gets snow report 01.01.2013
Here is the latest snow report from our team in Les Gets
A full 140cm of snow sits laying in wait at the top of the Portes du Soleil this morning, eagerly awaiting its morning rush of guests and locals alike! As tested by our first team snowball fight squad, snow is around ankle depth in resort, with about 50cm. However, due to its icy nature, two players were injured during the battle.
The last snow fall in resort was 27/12/12. Although we were not blessed with snow from the heavens last night, the brilliance of snow cannons means that a fresh layer of powder lies on all the major runs.
66/69 runs in resort are open today. Other than the occasional black, all runs are fully open in the Portes du Soleil! No excuses for not going for a good carve on New Years day!
A whopping 202 out of the 208 lifts in the Portes du Soleil are open today! With 49/51 lifts in Les Gets open today.
With light snow expected to fall constantly throughout the day, with more tomorrow morning, snow conditions can only get better, with an extra 10cm hitting resort. There’ll be a few clouds tomorrow afternoon, with Thursday being a much clearer day. Temperatures will hit a low of -13 in the next few days, reaching only as high as 1. Wind chill will be slightly cooler dropping down to around -20.
The ski conditions are absolutely fantastic! In Les Gets & Morzine the snow cannons and piste bashers have really worked their magic, leaving all the major runs perfectly groomed for this mornings visitors to lay down some fresh tracks. Up higher in Avoriaz and the Swiss resorts, conditions could not be better, with further fresh snowfall last night accompanying the previous weeks snowfall to leave conditions absolutely perfect. It’s safe to say that the conditions in Les Gets so far this season have not disappointed us or any of the visitors to resort.
There is a real family Christmas feel to Les Gets at the moment, family orientated events have been taking place most evenings in the central square and will continue to do so for the remainder of the Christmas period. For those of you wanting to experience some traditional local charm make sure you check out the local weekly market on a Thursday morning down at the Chamois car park and try some of the fantastic local delicacies and look out for the marmots.
