Beautiful Weather / Hard Pistes...

It has been a beautiful day today here in Chatel with blue skies, sunshine and stunning scenery. Pistes have generally been very hard with icy patches, especially this morning after the overnight refreeze, with some softening in places in the sunshine reported this afternoon and there are also still some nice bits to be found on some of the pistes. Chatel had 28/46 pistes and 33/43 lifts open today, which is better than some areas of the Portes du Soleil. Overall the PDS has just over half of its 195 lifts open, which is not the best situation for the first week in January. As we reported earlier today, the snow cannon were on in Chatel overnight and if atmospheric conditions allow them to work again tonight, then these will help the open pistes along with the grooming that is carried out each night, whilst we are tucked up in our beds.

This afternoon, a quick hike up to the Col du Croix via La Ryz and Epervier found a very quiet scene, as this part of Barbossine is currently closed. The Epervier piste was in OK condition right at the top with 5cm of sugary snow on a hard base, however the piste was broken lower down with grass and molehills sticking up through the snow.
The message remains the same this evening - more snow is needed.

Snow Making In Resort Overnight...

It is a cold start to the day here in Chatel and the temperatures and humidity levels have allowed the snow cannon to function in the resort overnight. This is obviously very good news after the wet weather of the weekend.
