Cooler weather before more sun

Home / Uncategorized / Cooler weather before more sun

The skies are clouded over and the temperature on the mountain has dropped to -3 C but sun and blue skies are set to return tomorrow. Temperatures will then be above zero and winds will be light – an excellent time to try paragliding – Verbier is one of Europe’s premier destinations for this sport.

On-piste snow conditions remain excellent although off-piste is somewhat crusty due to the warm weather of the last couple of days. Avalanche levels remain at level 3. If you are new to the area taking guided off-piste is recommended at the moment due to the unstable snow pack.

The Verbier Ride is one of the worlds leading freeskiing competitions. The Skier Cross discipline has become a recognized X-Games qualifier event. The Slope Style event attracts many of Europe‘s top freeskiing athletes. The event is being held this weekend at a specially designed course within the La Chaux freestyle area (Neipark 1936).

The Verbier Take the Hill by Keech contest has been deferred until the 17th March. This is a demo in the form of a contest between 5 pro-skiers, 5 pro-snowboarders and 5 pro-bikers.
