Courchevel snow report 11.01.2013

Here is the latest snow report from our lovely rep Jack in Courchevel

There is 151cm of snow at the top of the Courchevel ski area with 98cm in resort. It has been snowing overnight with plenty of fresh snow coming down.

113 of the 119 pistes are open with  51 of the 57 Courchevel lifts open.

What a week we have had in Courchevel. Shimmering slopes underneath endless blue skies, a treat which 2013, like that annoying kid at school, did not have to work for at all. And just as the skiing snobs among us start to mutter and tut about icy patches and lumps and bumps did the heavens open once more. The gentle crunch of uncondensed snowflakes underfoot and the inevitable foray off-piste and into the unknown – there truly is something for everyone here, powder hunters and piste skiers skiing together once more. Gentle snow is forecast throughout the beginning of next week, so you may hear the skiing snobs start to mutter about the lack of blue sky – ignore these people, enjoy the powder.
