Courchevel Snow Report, 26 Mar 2010

SkierThere is 130cm of snow at 2700m and 90cm of snow at 1850m.

The sun is shining again this afternoon, and on fresh powder from this morning. Woken by light snow, it quickly turned quite heavy and Courchevel’s slopes got some much needed new snow. By lunchtime it had slowed up so conditions were excellent for some nice off-piste or for just flying down the runs.

Due to the small number of people in resort at the moment the pistes have retained large amounts of its snow despite the sun and warm temperatures and with more snow expected overnight and the forever dependably brilliant piste-bashing conditions should be close to perfect tomorrow, especially first thing in the morning.

The blue run ‘ Folyeres’ down into La Tania has been excellent all week and would be a great first run of the day tomorrow morning, especially if you are staying in 1850. It should be good too if it is snowing hard as the trees give good weather protection.

Snow, snow, snow glorious snow and lots of it. Around 25-30cm forecast for the next two days and more later in the week.

With warmer temperatures comes the opportunity to BBQ on the slopes, the first of which are starting this week at various bars and pubs in the Courchevel Valley.

This week is also your last chance to try sky-diving, however the weather should be getting better and better to take a Discovery Flight.
