Tignes Snow Report, 21 Jan 2011

Snow – top of ski area:   123cm

Snow depth in resort:   52cm

The pistes throughout the Espace Kily region are continuing to provide some of the best skiing in the entire Alps.

Both the La Forne glacier and the Grande Motte glacier are proving to be extremely popular with the snow on the peaks close to perfect.

The Val d’Isère snow park continues to grow and proves to be a popular hangout for seasonnaires and holiday makers alike, dreams of the fast approaching Tignes-held European X-games still lurking in the back of many people’s minds.

Some snow showers are due for this evening with the clear skies that have been blessing the slopes all week returning from Saturday morning.

Pro-skiers Xavier Bertoni and Kevin Roland have been seen training on the super-pipe in preparation for the Europe 2011 X Games in March. Last year’s winner Kevin Roland will be hoping for the repeat performance to see himself land another gold medal.
