Well maintained slopes on the main mountain are standing up well to the crowds of holidaymakers. Runs are at their best during the morning. Later in the afternoon there are extensive patches of hard pack on the steeper slopes. It is now possible to ski all the way back to Medran, but try to come down before 3pm when the runs down the mountain are very busy.
Inside at Chez Simon – Savoleyres
At Savoleyres the blue airport run remains closed due to poor snow coverage however the red run from the top down to the Tailley lift is open. It is possible to ski down to the Les Etablons lift on the La Tzoumaz side and the Sud lift on the front side is also open. A track has been pisted along the road on the front side to allow skiers access to the Route Carrefour so you can ski back to the main mountain.
Good News at Les Esserts – the bottom section of the button lift is now open. This gives beginners a slightly steeper slope to practice on before progressing to the main mountain.
Meteo Suisse shows sun and daytime temperatures of +10 degrees C for the rest of this week. Bets on when there will be more snow are forecasting 4th/5th January.
