Val Thorens Snow Report, 12 Mar 2010

Val ThorensThe snow on the Glacier Du Bouchet, at 3200m, has reached a depth of 180cm and in resort the depth reaches 120cm.

The pistes around Val Thorens no have a light dusting of powder covering them, just enough to combat any challenging patches! The weather is good this morning, and is due to stay sunny for nearly an entire week!

There is a possibility of some snow Friday night, and I’m sure everyone would appreciate it. Sunny runs in Orelle, like Peyron and Bouchet, are going to be in great shape, and Also worth getting down to Saint Martin for the lovely long rolling runs like Jerusalem.

If you would Like to explore off-piste in the area, down Les Menuires way there’s lots of great rolling hills off the sides of the pistes, and for the more adventurous, Lac Du Masse will hopefully be in great shape.

A light covering of new snow is forecast over the next day or so and temperatures are going to be below freezing, max -4’c (Sun morning) to min -20’c (Fri night), so wrap up warm when going out at night! But generally light winds.

We’re all excited about the ‘WAXX’ snowpark contest today! The Jazz festival is on every night this week from 7pm! We’ve got K2 showing off their latest products and all the usually adrenaline pumping activites, like the night time toboggan run, and the mountain biking on snow. A congratulations is due to the restaurant L’Oxlays, who earned their second Michelin Star earlier this week.
