Alpe d’Huez snow report 11.01.2013

Here is the latest snow report from our team in Alpe d’Huez.

It is currently snowing in ADH with 12 inches falling overnight! There is 250cm of snow at the top of the ski area and 136cm in resort.

125 runs are open with 55 of the 64 lifts open.

The forecast for the next three days is for 1 to 6 inches of snow for the next 3 days and a freezing point no higher than 1000m.

After hunting down the very last of the unskiied powder yesterday, a top up was required. Accordingly, we sacrificed a chalet girl to the snow gods and have had a foot fall in resort overnight. The snow is still falling and the temperature is forecast to stay low for several days, meaning that the pistes are less likely to become icy.

The Alpe d’Huez comedy film festival is on next week. Any guests in resort can look forward to laughing their jolly socks off. The skicross track from last week’s championships is now also open to visitors.
