Selva – Snow Report, 16 Mar 2010

SelvaBeautiful blue skies cover Selva this morning, for the fifth day running. The conditions on the piste is being maintained, not only by the piste bashers but also by the sun, keeping the snow lovely and soft, providing loads of powder.

Snow showers again are on the forecast for the next few days but as Selva still defies what is being predicted, I hear no one complaining. To have the chance to ski in some of the mast breathtaking surroundings in the world, whilst skiing down a perfect piste into Plan de Gralba and stopping off to see the majestic views around the top of the Ciampinoi or heading down the back end of Dantercepies. All of that, topped with delightful rays of sunshine over head (allowing you to top up your tan as well), I can’t any reason why people would have a problem with that.

However there has been a slight wind through the Val Gardena valleys so skiers have been wrapping their faces up a little bit more than usual but the general morale of the town and amount of people still heading out to complete the Sella Ronda or the long run down to the Marmolada, it shows that despite a slight wind-chill dropping the temperatures, nobody is perturbed by it at all.

Our guests are venturing out to do the famous James Bond run today on the ski hosting. After looking at the webcams this morning, they are in for a real treat. I have prepared them for it as it is around 10km long but once again the excitement is loud and clear and that the distance just drives them on further. I have also told them to pack their cameras as some of the views at the top of the run at Seceda will be fantastic with the current weather.
