Meribel Snow Report, 07 Dec 2010

Méribel, FranceThere’s a good snow depth of 55cm at 2952m whilst in resort there’s 35cm.
Around 30% is open due it being the beginning of the season, and the resort not running at full service quite yet.

The conditions in Meribel for this time of year are breathtaking, with 55cm of snow sitting ready at the highest point. As it is the start of the season, skiers and boarders will have the run of the slopes almost to themselves, and with the bars and restaurants beginning to open their doors around resort and across the mountain, a leisurely lunch or slope-side hot chocolate without the crowds will only enhance the snowy experience. Overall we look set for an amazing start of the season!

Snow is forecast overnight Wednesday, promising some fresh powder and extra peppering of the slopes for those early-season skiers and boarders. Following that we look set for some glorious blue skies and sunshine.

Excitement is building over next week’s freestyle event. The FIS World Cup for Bumps skiing hits town on Wednesday 15th December, with the course already being built most people can’t believe there are those crazy enough to attempt it.

The Meribar is opening its doors on Thursday 9th December, with a fresh new interior, bouncing smiley staff and a completely new menu; everyone in resort is pumped to check it out.
