The cloud is hanging quite low over the mountains this morning, with a fresh coating of snow on the ground from early on in the night. We had about 3cm more snow, with more predicted for today. Snow tyres therefore continue to be a must. It's a little warmer in town this morning than yesterday at, but a lot cooler at the top of the mountain. The clouds are due to clear a little in the middle of the day, but will descend again in the afternoon, bringing 3-5cm more snow. Likewise the wind at 2500m is due to be calm this morning, but this evening a gusty Northerly wind is likely to blow the fresh snow around a fair bit.
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
The new Le Daille bubble is now closed for everyone and will open when the pistes to the bottom of Le Daille are skiable. The Mont Blanc lift will be closed, but all other lifts are due to open.
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.
The Solaise gondola, Glacier Express, Lessieres, Madeleine, Cugnai, Datcha Chairlifts and the PimPam drag lift are all open.
Lac d'Ouilette, Marais, Cugnai, Madeleine, Col de Madeleine, La Fourche, St Jacques, Glaciers and Lac Parc a Moutons are all open.
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.
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.
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.
The Col d'Iseran, Pont St Charles, Laisinant and Lac d'Ouilette paths are open. Everything else is closed.
