The deep and fluffy arrives in Verbier

Home / ES Blog / The deep and fluffy arrives in Verbier

Snow falling over the last 48 hours has transformed Verbier into a real winter wonderland. Heavy snow falling on Monday was rather wet but yesterday morning saw soft dry powder everywhere. High winds stopped the opening of the top of the mountain so there should be plenty of untracked stuff available above Ruinettes and at the top of Attelas when the area opens up today.

Winds have caused some crusty conditions on exposed areas but has also resulted in pockets of powder elsewhere. Lots was to be found in Fontaneys and off the side of the piste under Combe 1 – see the video of clients enjoying the snow with Andrea Bionda of European Snowsport…..

On piste conditions above Ruinettes and at Savoleyres are great at the moment. However, there are some icy patches lower on the main mountain due to the wetter conditions of Monday. The Bruson area also looks amazing and plenty of people headed over there yesterday to take advantage of the uncrowded slopes and off-piste tree skiing.

Clouds cleared to give beautiful blue skies yesterday. Skies will be overcast today with a bit more snow but then clear for blue skies at the end of the week. The high winds of the early week should be dropping but any off-pisters should watch out for cornices.
