Les Gets Snow Report, 12 Mar 2010
The amount of snow at 1172m is 70cm.
The temperatures throughout the week have been averaging -10 which has meant the snow has been kept in fabulous condition. The snow machines have been working overtime in resort, for the lower slopes that have been a little patchy. However overall the ski conditions have been very enjoyable this week.
A great run that has been enjoyed this week is the long cruising blue in Morzine called Lievre. It is a lovely track that goes through the trees and down to the chair TS de Fys. There is the perfect opportunity for a hot chocolate stop at the bottom of the chair lift where you can sit outside, admire the horses on the local farm and enjoy a van chaud for only 1 euro…bargain!
The weather forecast for the next three days is looking good. Today it will be sunny and cloudy with temperatures dropping to -5, tomorrow is looking similar with temperatures staying the same and clear skies and bright sunshine in the morning, sunshine and cloud in the afternoon. Sunday will bring a mixture of sunshine and snow later in the day.
Tomorrow there is a freestyle ski contest running throughout the day. Starting at 10am and running through until 8.30pm there are many activities and events to be observed. Finishing with a bang when skiers will do some amazing jumps over the street outside of the tourist office.
