With a fresh fall of snow last week the powder available off piste is exceptional. The snow at the top of the ski area has reached a depth of 350cm.
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.
Today we are expecting clear skies with lots of sun and a light wind to keep you cool across resort. Temperatures maximum -6 and minimum -9. Tomorrow conditions will be similar but slightly warmer with less of a breeze, even warmer on Thursday just before a drop in temperature on Thursday evening and fresh snow fall on Thursday night leading into Friday morning.
The visiting Bob Marley tribute plan is playing tonight and Thursday night in Underground after a popular opening performance on Sunday evening.
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.
