After a busy, sunny holiday week the clouds rolled in yesterday and more snow arrived in Verbier. A few centimetres of fresh snow yesterday was followed by several heavy snowfalls during today. Temperatures at resort level were above zero causing some sticky snow below Ruinettes and particularly at the beginners slopes of Les Esserts.
The top of the main mountain remained shut the whole day due to gusting wind speeds of up to 80km/hr. High winds also delayed the opening of the Savoleyres gondola until lunchtime.
News of the Week!!! The La Tzoumaz sledge run is now open. The run goes from the top to the bottom of the gondola on the La Tzoumaz side of the mountain – 10km of pure excitement – remember your goggles and helmet!!
Forecasts for the next couple of days are for more clouds and snow. Temperatures will be dropping slightly as will the wind speeds so expect more of the upper slopes to be available with some fresh powder snow.
