Well this was definitely the first day of spring skiing with spring snow conditions from the top of the resort to base, and particularly soft from halfway down the mountain. I saw a thermomtre in the village reading +10c around midday, and this was backed up by major melt on all roads causing large puddles. The weather itself couldnt have been more perfect with nice blue skies and sunshine, but luckily there was a light breeze to stop over heating. Temperatures from tomorrow should be back into negatives and light snow is forecast continuously over the next 6 days.
