Courchevel Snow Report, 09 Mar 2010

CourchevelThe Three Valleys has a snow depth of 130cm at 2700m and 114 cm at Courchevel 1850m.

Isn’t it just great when the weather report is wrong! Instead of clouds and snow showers, yesterday skiers in Courchevel were treated to one of the bluest days ever seen and beautiful snow conditions all over the mountain.

Although sometimes very cold, the superb conditions appeared to warm everyone up as they came back raving about the gorgeous weather and amazing quality of snow all over the resort, surely among the best if not the best snow conditions in the Alps.

This morning the weather again seems to be conspiring with us to provide ideal conditions in which to get out and get skiing with minimal cloud cover and perfectly groomed slopes ready for the morning.

Sunny spells forecast for today with cloud and light snow for Wednesday and Thursday. Despite the absence of sun forecast for Wednesday and Thursday it is expected to warm up a bit which will help on the chairlifts.

The main event of the week will be the conclusion of The International Festival of Pyrotechnical Art on Thursday evening in 1850 which promises to go out with a Bang (literally).

This week is an ideal opportunity to try out some moves on the Freestyle Big Air bag ready to catch you when you rather than if you fall (trying a 360!).
