Tignes Snow Report, 28 Mar 2012

Tignes, FranceThe upper slopes of the Espace Killy have 207cm and Tignes itself has superb cover on the home runs of 105cm.

With the spell of beautiful weather that Tignes has been experiencing the resort is producing some of the best skiing to be found in the French Alps. With the avalanche risk down at 1/5 all of the world famous off piste zones to be found in Tignes and Val D’Isère are far more accessible at this stage in the season than they have been at any other point.

On piste conditions are holding beautifully well. The south facing slopes tend to be very hard early morning, softening throughout the day. These are best to be attempted at around elevenses. The north and particularly west facing slopes are staying in fantastic condition throughout the day with the best snow in the whole resort to be found on these slopes. All pistes down to the Grande Motte glacier are skiing particularly well from 3,456m down to resort level at 2,100m. The “double M” run starting at the top of the Lanches lift down to Val Claret is in great order with powder to be found throughout the day.
