Snow at last in Verbier

Home / Uncategorized / Snow at last in Verbier


Just when we thought the forecasts might be wrong again snow is falling at last in Verbier!!!!

This morning was overcast but the clouds were still high in the sky. Strong winds at Lac des Vaux made riding the lift painful as well as difficult to get off.

This afternoon, a good 24hrs later than predicted, the clouds have rolled in and a few flurries soon turned into almost white-out conditions. Temperatures have dropped significantly and snow is settling down in the village at 1500m as well as up on the mountain.

Tortin yesterday had some great smooth packed powder. The options for this famous run are to go straight down the large moguls at the entrance or negotiate a tricky traverse along to skiers right. The effort is worth it though whichever route you choose. Conditions tomorrow with the new snowfall can only improve the somewhat rocky way in.
On the après scene rumours are flying about a billionaire who funded a free bar at the Farinet last night. Ambulances were called to ferry away a few that had overindulged. Expect crowds there again tonight for the delayed first night of the infamous Yellow Mike Band.

The Bruson area remains closed as is the Col des Gentianes itinerary route. It is still best to take the lift down from Ruinettes at present.

Fingers crossed for an extended snowfall although the forecast is only for 13cm – but looking outside just now it looks as though the weather has settled in for the night at least – get those fat skis ready!!!!
