Rain, Winds and more snow

Home / Uncategorized / Rain, Winds and more snow
Two full days of fresh snowfall gave a great winter atmosphere in Verbier. This morning saw rain at resort level which washed away some of the slippery stuff from the roads and paths. High winds also caused closures of lifts higher up on the main mountain and on the Savoleyres gondola until lunchtime.

Access to the itinerary runs including Tortin, Col des Gentianes, Vallon D’Arbi and Col des Mines remain closed due to avalanche risk. But there has been some great powder available elsewhere including Fontaneys and further afield in the four valleys. Rain has compacted a lot of the snow below Ruinettes but the crowds are still enjoying conditions above this area.

Testing out the newly openedLa Tzoumaz sledge run was great fun today with powder on the upper part and thick slush on the steeper lower part – have a look at the video and try it for yourselves……….

Forecasts for the next couple of days are for more clouds and snow. Daytime temperatures at resort level will be above zero so head up higher for fresh powder. Winds are also expected to reduce so allowing access to the top level areas.
