Verbier Snow Report, 16 Mar 2010

VerbierVerbier has seen some fantastic clear weather this weekend with low temperatures and lots of sunshine so conditions in resort are great!

Right at the very top of Verbier at 2950m there currently is 175cm of snow. At 2200m there is 147cm and at 1500m there is 10cm with small amount of snow falling on Sunday night.

90% of runs are currently open in Verbier and all 34 lifts are open.

The beautiful sunshine and clear skies from last week have continued this week and means that conditions on the slopes are really good. The small snowfall on Sunday evening came at just the right time and the low temperatures have helped to keep the slopes fast and firm, great for skiers who like their carving.

Snow showers are set to arrive in Verbier followed by sunny spells later on in the week. Temperatures look to range between 0°C and -5°C at 1500m with colder temperatures at the top maybe reaching minus 16°C.

The big event in Verbier this week is that the Nissan Xtreme is hitting the resort. The planet’s most talented freeskiers and snowboarders will be displaying their skill, madness and bravery in what promises to be an incredible spectacle that will have onlookers gasping in shock and admiration.
