Verbier – one of the few European resorts with decent snow cover is packed with holidaymakers seeking snow. Snow conditions on the main mountain are still good although the main runs are crowded and lift queues are long.
New uniforms for the Swedish instructors
at European snowsports
None of the itinerary routes are open as yet although Mont Fort is available to those seeking challenging skiing.
Savoleyres is a useful alternative to those seeking quieter slopes and few queues. There are limited runs open but enough to keep skiers of all standards entertained for a few hours. The Route Carrefour is open providing access to the Marmotte and Namaste Restaurants at the base of Savoleyres. However – watch out for the poor snow coverage at the end of the run – a small walk is required down the last section to the Carrefour restaurant.
A new snack bar – the Yeti – is also now available for light refreshments at the Carrefour roundabout.
Although a few clouds drifted across the sky today no snow is forecast until well into next week – long live the snow cannons………
