Winter has arrived with a bang!

27 December 2014

Wow, what a difference a day makes! We’ve gone from no snow and clear blue skies, to 50cm’s and counting. We had a fantastic morning with a limited opening due to snow and wind, but because it was Saturday and change-over day there weren’t too many people about and we skied fresh snow right up until 1 o’clock.

The snow has caused havoc with the roads on the busiest day of the season and the road up-and-down the mountain has been closed part of the afternoon and Tansy, Andreas and Thomas are all stuck in Val hoping that they can get home tonight. And it will be an absolute nightmare for thousands of holiday makers trying to make it up the mountain, many of whom will have been worried about a lack of snow. You’ve just got to love Val d’Isere because it never lets you down!

It’s forecast to stop snowing around 8PM and with a clear night we should have some great skiing tomorrow, although that depends on accessibility and not too many people in the same area. Fingers crossed. The avalanche risk will also be through the roof tomorrow so we’ll be taking it easy and taking what’s on offer without risk. Stay tuned!
