Weather

A positively balmy day lies ahead with plenty of sunshine, very little wind and mild maximum temperatures. It will take a while to warm up after a good refreeze last night and an inversion of temperatures- at 8am, it was -7°C in town and -3°C at the top of the Bellevarde. But maximum temperatures on South facing slopes will get up to 0 to 4°C at 2000m and 0 to -2°C at 3000m. This afternoon, a few thin high altitude clouds will spread out across the sky, before dissipating for a clear and starry night tonight.


Ski Report

Bellevarde

Trifollet remains closed. Epaule de Charvet and Santons will open late as a Snow Cannon malfunctioned and started releasing water, which quickly turned the pistes into ice rinks. It is very important to stay off these and all other closed pistes. The Boarder Cross and Snowpark are open.

The Tommeuses and Borsat chairlifts are open allowing access to Val Claret and Tignes le Lac.

Solaise

Every piste in the sector is open today, although the bottom of Marmottons will probably stay closed and instead cut onto the Arcelle piste.

Fornet

Cognon may open today.
