Sunshine and blue skies welcomed crowds to Verbier this weekend. With temperatures remaining below zero the snow quality is still very good – packed powder on the pistes and chopped up soft stuff off-piste. Col des Gentaines is once again open although watch out for a small rocky patch halfway down. Tortin is also open and said to be very good at present with not too many moguls. The glacier drag lifts and itineraries Vallon D Arbi and Col des Mines remain closed for the present. However, rock coverage off-piste is generally much better following the recent snowfall this week.
At Savoleyres the snow conditions are still very good and the slopes are much less crowded. The only icy run is the red down to La Tzoumaz all the other runs are pisted powder and there is still some powder available off piste on the La Tzoumaz side of the mountain and under the Tailley lift.
The forecast for the next few days into February is for more sun and temperatures of around 4 C during the day and -5C overnight. Snow cannons are now back hard at work to maintain the snow conditions as we roll up towards the half term holiday.
