Forecasting a beautiful week of sunshine now is the time to be in resort!
After fresh dustings of snow over the weekend, pistes around the Pic Bblanc and second DMC stop area ski conditions are perfect, the snow is not too deep and there’s not a trace of ice. Les Chamois, Bartavelles, Belvedere and Olympique offer challenging skiing on soft snow around the main basin and the blues (Les Jeux, Les Sagnes and those around the Marmottes area) further down are pisted to perfection for those wanting to take it easy or who are beginning to ski.
Signal offers good sheltered skiing in the sunshine in the morning and head over to Vaujaunay or Auris as the day draws out. With snow falling heavily this morning we are set for some brilliant snow off piste and on piste over the next few days.

Head over to Vaujuanay, Auris, off the back of signal or take the helicopter across to the La Grave and you can start making your own tracks in the fresh snow. On piste the snow is fabulous with lots of choice. Certain pistes like Vernettes, poutat, les chamois and even le couloirs have some soft moggles to dodge for those of you who want a challenge. Otherwise head over to Oz and Vaujanay taking runs like les chalets, edelweiss and le vaujaniate for some lovely smooth wide winding blues in the sun. The pistes off the back of signal and in the main basin are also in perfect conditions for cruising down on soft pisted snow.

The ice caves at the first DMC stop opened it’s doors for the first time last week for the VIP’s of the film festival. This week it’s open to the public on Wednesday and Friday evening till late with the opportunity to come down in a piste basher. The sculptures are fantastic, definitely worth a look.
With a sprinkling yesterday, and a few days ahead of us, the powder has arrived and it’s snowing right now! Fresh snow for all this weekend! Snow depth at the top of the ski area is approx. 290cm and round resort 119cm.
