Verbier Snow Report, 09 Mar 2010

Skier in Verbier

Friday brought lots of fresh snow to Verbier, making conditions excellent for the weekend with Saturday, Sunday and Monday all being beautiful clear days.

In Verbier itself, at 1500m, snow depth is 20cm. By 2200 the depth increases to 153cm and up at the top at 3000m there is 185cm of snow.

Friday’s snowfall has left a nice thin layer of snow on the slopes leaving them smooth and fast. This along with the weekend’s sunshine has meant that the conditions at all levels of the mountain are excellent. The clear skies have also meant that the temperature has dropped and with all the lifts in the area now open, there’s plenty to explore.

The forecast for this week is set to be mostly light snow showers which will be great for the pistes. Higher levels in resort will see sunny spells with intermittent snowfall. Temperatures look to remain low.

The world famous DJ Mylo appeared in Verbier this weekend. He played at the Farinet bar on Friday evening. Fans of the DJ partied well into the early hours of Sunday morning.
