Standing back looking at the mountain, "a glorious day" was the first thing that came into my head with the nice blue colour of the sky contrasting against all that nice fresh snow that we recieved yesterday. Yesterday morning was a great opportunity to experience a great dump of powder, while by late afternoon it had all been skied out on piste, but the mountain looked stunning covered in so much fresh snow, which was a sight we hadnt seen for a while.

More good snow news looks to be heading this way. The forecast shows light snow from today through to Thursday. On Friday a heavy snowfall is predicted, along with very strong winds.

As for today the pistes are in fantstic condition and nicely groomed. The off piste areas still have plenty of nice powder on them. Wrap up if heading out as it is cold at -24c in the village.
