Les Gets snow report 11.12.2012
The latest snow report from our team in Les Gets
Recent snowfall means we have about 3 feet of snow down in Les Gets, which is fantastic. Although roads and foot paths have all been cleared, so getting around won’t be a problem. With so much snow down in resort, you can imagine how deep it is at the top of the ski area, with a lot of it being untouched due to lifts not being opened yet.
The last heavy snowfall in resort was 8/12/12, with quite a decent amount of snow. However, since then there has been a number of light snow falls and it’s expected to continue like this.
There are going to be some fairly light showers over the next few days in Les Gets. With expected high temperatures of 0 and lows of -23; but wind chill could mean it feels much more like -30. In the build up to the weekend and the lifts opening there will be some heavier snow showers so conditions should be good for weekend skiing.
The fresh powder up on the mountains is in amazing condition at the moment. The snow on the slopes is being regularly topped up, with plenty of snowfalls in resort over recent days, and plenty more expected in time for the weekend ahead. It has been nice and sunny over the past few days, in between the snowfalls that is; perfect weather to get out on the slopes for the first time this weekend. Mont Chery is still untouched, what with the lifts not being open yet. And the skiing over there will be excellent when the runs open, as it always is when the pistes haven’t been skied yet.
In resort over the coming weeks there will be an Indian and Highlanders themed treasure hunt for the local children and guests of course, which is always fun and runs frequently throughout the season. For those of you that didn’t know, Santa Claus lives in Les Get, so in the run up to Christmas we will no doubt be seeing him out and about quite a bit. There’ll also be plenty of parties and events around resort to get the season kicked off in style.
