Courchevel Snow Report, 02 Mar 2010

CourchevelSnow depths are 130cm at Courchevel 1850 and 170cm at 2700 metres. The new week has started off tremendously well for our new guests with bright brilliant sunshine giving them a chance to both enjoy Courchevel’s amazing pistes in perfect warm, sunny conditions but also to get a nice March tan and a healthy glow.

Snow overnight on Monday also meant the pistes were still in excellent condition for the second day of the week. As ever the pistes were expertly groomed overnight which meant those first out this morning couldn’t have asked for more. The heavy snowfall last week has supplemented what was there before and throughout the resort all runs are looking very healthy even the dreaded ‘Grand Couloir’ and especially the extensive off-piste areas Courchevel has to offer.

More sun is forecast for tomorrow morning with a lump of snow to help top-up following in the afternoon and through Thursday which should mean some nice powder in time for the sun to come out again on Friday.

Legendary Courchevel bar ‘Le Jump’ finally re-opened its doors this week and is sure to reclaim its reputation and significant influx.

Full-Moon skiing will be taking place tonight, an opportunity for even more time out on the pistes and in opposite conditions to the strong sunshine during the day.

Wednesday night will see a special concert on the ice rink by Celtic Legends which promises to be one to watch and on Thursday the International Festival of Pyrotechnical Art continues, this time down in 1650.
