Alpe d’Huez Snow Report 01/03/2013
Here is the latest snow report from our team in Alpe d’Huez
There is 378cm of snow at the top of the Alpe d’Huez ski area with 176cm of snow in resort. The last snowfall was on 20th Feb with around 3cm falling.
There are 131 of pistes open in the Alpe d’Huez ski area with 52 out of 64 ski lifts open.
A weather system is coming in so we’re expecting some snow over the next few days.
It’s been another very sunny week. Temperatures have stayed low though, so there’s still very little ice. There’s still a bit of powder too if you know where to look.
The warm weather is bringing out the local animals. Yesterday I saw a variable hare and a fox running around off-piste in front of me. More and more chamois are being seen too.
The freestyle event sponsored by SFR is coming to Alpe d’Huez next weekend. We’re expecting some very good skiers in resort and it should be a fun couple of days.
