Chatel Snow Report: 23/10/2014: 1.50pm
Light Covering Overnight At 1200m / Nice Views From Tour De Don At 1998m

There was some light snow overnight in Chatel at 1200m with a patchy coverage on the ground of mostly about 2cm, with some favoured surfaces 3 to 4cm. Temperatures fell just below freezing overnight in resort leading to some frozen surfaces.
A hike up Barbossine and up to the top of Tour de Don at 1998m this morning found some stunning scenery and a bit more snow. The measured average depth at 1800m was 12cm, so a little bit more than was measured late yesterday afternoon. At 1998m, there was a little more, but there had been a fair bit of drifting, so getting an average depth was much more difficult, but there was perhaps nearer to 15cm at the top. Unfortunately there was not enough snow on this occasion to warrant taking any sliding equipment or snowshoes - and it looks like it will be November before such items of equipment might be needed.
