Sun, sun, sun in Verbier on Easter weekend. A few clouds were seen in the sky this afternoon but that didn’t really cool things down too much. There was also some wildlife seen on La Chaux – anyone spot the rabbit? There were quite a few wearing T shirts to ski in and getting the red arms to match!!
Lots of people were enjoying the facilities on slope such as the Chateaux Carlsberg with resident DJ and deckchairs. The 1936 bar further down the mountain has also proved irresistable to those seeking a sofa in the snow.
The Alpimages photography guys were out in force making the most of the great weather with their Great Bernard – Sheena and a palm tree at Lac des Vaux and Chris and Yovo ready to take outstanding shots at La Chaux.
Les Esserts saw its final day today and well done to the team at Televerbier that kept it going so long. Beginners will now need to head up to Ruinettes or La Chaux to find suitable terrain. The Bruson ski area is also now closed for the season. However, all the itinerary routes are currently open including Col des Mines and Vallon D’Arbi. Fontaneys in the afternoon is great for getting to grips with those slush moguls!!
Skiing to the other resorts of the 4 valleys is still blocked due to the breakdown of the Siviez to Tortin chairlift. The run down to Medran is also critically thin – best advice is to take the lift down from Ruinettes at the end of the day.
Weather for the next couple of days will continue to be sunny with on mountain afternoon temperatures of up to 12 C – get that sunscreen on to avoid the lobster look. Later in the week more cloud cover is forecast – lets hope this brings some late season snow with it.
