Val Thorens Snow Report, 06 Apr 2010

Val Thorens, FranceThe snow base is 215cm deep on the Glacier Du Bouchet, at 3200m, with 140cm on the runs in Val Thorens itself.

With even more new snow, this week is looking to be one of the best of the season! The pistes are in great shape, and although it’s a busy time, they’re more than big enough to accommodate everyone! And if you do think that the pistes are a little busy, how about getting further down the mountain, there are loads of beautiful runs down in Les Menuires and Saint Martin, and there’s still snow, most of the crowds will be heading up as high as possible. Or get yourself a guide and hit the deep powder off piste! There’s nearly a whole valley leading to Lac de L’eau that’s accessible only by stepping off the beaten track!

Freeze-thaw conditions are due (max 2’c Tue morning, min -10’c Thurs night) with a dusting of new snow. Calm winds.

The 3 valley rally yesterday was a success, but closed off some pistes to regular skiers.  A  multi activity challenge is a great opportunity to try out human curling, snowshoes, or telemark. And a chance for the children to have an Easter egg hunt and a chocolate party! And as usual all the adrenaline pumping activities, like the night time toboggan run, the mountain biking on snow, and the ice driving academy.
