Les Arcs Snow Report, 19 Mar 2010

Les ArcsThe last snowfall was 8cm on 15th March so snow depths are now 210 at 3300m and 135cm at 2000m. 99% of runs are open and 50/54 lifts.

Les Arcs really benefits from its high altitude and with pistes across the mountain still having a great snow depth for this time of season. The runs off the top of the mountain have some quality snow, allowing skiers an opportunity to get an edge in and profit from the relatively quite mountain.  Thanks to the great snow all season almost all of the runs are still available allowing skiers to do some exploring across the range of Les Arcs.  As always late in the season the Snow Park is becoming a bigger feature with a great atmosphere, with skiers and boarders basking in the sun watching others come down the Park in no more than a light jacket.

With skiing being of good quality, plenty of sun and not too many people it is a good time to be skiing in Les Arcs.

The forecast for tomorrow is sunshine with the weather closing in on Saturday and Sunday bringing some snow to rejuvenate the pistes.

Les Arcs has just opened the water-strip by the Altiport, a thin stretch of water where skiers and boarders attempt to lean back a glide across to safely make it to the other side. It is a very entertaining attraction for those watching from the restaurant and those attempting it themselves.
