This is not a blog post that needs much in the top half. So suffice to say it’s snowed loads, it’s snowing again today. Loads. And tomorrow. Loads. And last weekend you could ski Col de Mouche because the Chassoure bubble was open. OK the actual Chassoure-Tortin itinerary isn’t officially open yet, but does Verbier get better than a powder day with nobody around and Col de Mouche to yourself?
Probably, but right now I can’t think of anything.
Yup, we all went to the T-Bar terrace last night for the annual Dearlove and Mackenzie spring barbecue – which was brilliant by the way – and guess what? That’s right, spring immediately went away and winter came charging back. So Verbier is waking up to this right now.
And the rumour is it’s going to be here for a while…
I know, we normally run lots of stories with impressive pictures of snow and skiing around this time of year but don’t panic – it’s still very, very early and even in a good year the only area open is Lac des Vaux. Which stops being fun rather quickly. The real stuff only starts rolling in December.
Anyway, the good news is that there has been snow up there, too high for lac des Vaux but the view at sunset from the Mont Fort webcam was particularly epic. And here are a couple of snaps to whet your whistle and prove that it’s always snowing somewhere…
Mike’s up at Attelas and has just sent a few pictures of the new snow. Enjoy. And you can see more from yesterday here.
Mike’s up at Ruinettes and whilst is a bit foggy and rubbish in town, it’s stunning up top… (You can see more on our webcam page).
