Val Thorens Snow Report, 26 Mar 2010

Val Thorens, FranceOn the Glacier Du Bouchet, at 3200m, there is a snow base of 170cm whilst in resort the base is 105cm.

We’re hopefully just getting the start of the dump we’ve been waiting for. It started snowing this morning, and is forecast to continue snowing right through to Sunday morning, where we’ll get sunny days with the occasional cloud and back to snow on Tuesday night. While the winds are strong and the snow is coming down, I suggest staying in the shelter of the valley, and skiing around the lower Val Thorens area, and in Les Menuires. After the dump has finished, Get yourselves up to Orelle, and down Bouchet and Peyron, as they will be in fantastic condition, and a great sun spot.

A heavy snowfall, with most being Saturday afternoon. Temperatures will be below freezing (-1’c Thursday night, -7’c Friday night). Winds will start strong and will be steadily decreasing.

We have the ‘GB 73’ snowpark competitions on today, and this week we’ve had two of the top French halfpipe snowboarders messing around in Val Thorens snowpark! So pop up there and check them out! And as usual all the adrenaline pumping activities, like the night time toboggan run, the mountain biking on snow, and the ice driving academy.
