Verbier SnowReport 20 Mar 2012

Skier in VerbierThe Col de Gentianes, at the top of the ski area, has a snow base of 260cm, supplemented by the 20cm that fell yesterday.  Lower runs have a base of 120cm.

Just when we thought winter was over in the 4 Valleys and hopes of one last big dump were dwindling, 20cm of fresh powder lands in our lap! A bluebird day today following yesterdays heavy snowfall is helping it shape up to be one of the best days of the season, pistes have been groomed to perfection offering superb spring skiing. Powder hunters will be out in force today with fresh untracked snow easily accessible and to suit every ability. Head off through the trees under Les Ruinettes for some challenging powder runs this week or take advantage of the conditions on-piste and head all the way across the 4 Valleys! 

Mixed cloud and sunshine is predicted for most of the week with the possibility of some light snow on Friday. The perfect week to spend a day off-piste with a mountain guide.

The Verbier Xtreme event takes place this Saturday, the final of the Freeride World Tour takes place on the formidable Bec de Rosses and features the worlds very best Freeriders competing for the title of Freeride World Champion.
