Weather It's good and wintery this morning with cool temperatures and plenty of snowfall, in fact there is a a fresh 7cm on the ground since yesterday. We aren't expecting it to snow all day, the clouds should clear a little at some point in the middle of the day, and we may even see an hour or so of sunshine, before the snow clouds make a return trip. It will stay cold through, with maximum temperatures of 1°C at 2000m and -5°C at 3000m. The strong wind from the North round to the North-West will be generally calmer, but still gusty in exposed areas.


Ski Report Just like last year, initially this season, it is not possible to ski to the bottom of the mountain, so you'll need to take one of the following down to descend the hill:

The Fornet Cable Car

The Olympic Bubble

The Solaise Bubble

The Le Daille Funicular


Bellevarde The New Le Daille bubble is closed and will repoen when the runs to the bottom are skiable. The Mont Blanc lift will be closed, but all other lifts are due to open.

Pistes: The top of the OK/Orange runs are open, but the bottom remains closed. Collet, Grand Pre, Diebold, Verte, Fresse, Borsat, 3J and Genepy are all open.

Please stay off Le Face! It is being prepared by for the World Cup so is very dangerous to ski down.


Solaise The Solaise gondola, Glacier Express, Lessieres, Madeleine, Cugnai, Datcha Chairlifts and the PimPam drag lift are all open.

Pistes: Lac d'Ouilette, Marais, Cugnai, Madeleine, Col de Madeleine, La Fourche, St Jacques, Glaciers and Lac Parc a Moutons are all open.

Fornet The Fornet cable car and Vallon bubble are open, as will be all the lifts on the Pisaillas Glacier, although, as usual they will open a little later.

Pistes: Pont Abat, Pyramides and Col are open.

On the Glacier, Les Champions, Montetes, Cascades, Moraine, Traversée des Arses, Pisaillas and Lac Cema are all open.


Off-Piste: The Avalanche Risk is 2 due to the risk of windslab. And if you're skiing off-piste, watch out for hidden rocks and be properly prepared.

Walking Routes: The Col d'Iseran, Laisinant and Manchet paths are open. Everything else is closed.
