We have had over 24hrs of snow in covering all the slopes and changing the world from green to white. Yesterday saw a slow start with avalanche control and high winds keeping the upper slopes of the main mountain and Savoleyres no-go areas.
Today early clouds cleared to stunning blue sky and just about every piste was open. There was powder available all over the place and the skiing was awesome. Although there was a chill in the air this didn’t stop the masses.
Over at Savoleyres it was possible to get first tracks down the front side and the runs down to La Tzoumaz were opened up for the first time. Not surprisingly the queues at Medran and Savoleyres gondola were long – but the wait was worth it
Good news for beginners at Les Esserts the button lift is at last open to the top of the slope. Route Carrefour linking Savoleyres to the main mountain is again closed due to avalanche. However, the red track from the bottom of the Savoleyres T- Bar to the top of Les Esserts has been pisted and is skiable for confident intermediates.
Snow is forecast again for tomorrow and Friday and with the New Year rush settling down in the resort we look forward to some amazing skiing into next week. This may be just the time to think about improving your off-piste technique……..
