Snow Reports You Can Trust...

The Chatel Snow Report brings together a wealth of snow reporting and forecasting knowledge, based on years of observations and experience in the Chatel ski and snowboarding area.


Accurate reports of snowfall and snow conditions can be hard to find in many ski resorts, due to a combination of factors, however, this site aims to continue the work which commenced on the ChatelWeb.com website, by providing honest, detailed and regular updates throughout the 2018/19 Chatel snow season.

My experience includes producing daily weather forecasts for over 17 years in North Wales and 3 years of producing snow forecasts for the ChatelWeb website. A passion for meteorology from a young age was continued at university, where various climate based courses were undertaken as part of a physical geography degree. Projects completed as part of the degree included mapping and measuring snowfall and mapping and measuring wind flow across an area. 

Our snow forecasting method utilises an experimental, blended model approach, which was used for several seasons on the ChatelWeb website.

It's Easy To Access All Updates This Season Via Patreon...

Snow reports and forecasts take time to produce...
 

A typical snow forecast update normally starts at about 6am with an early look at the overnight model runs and the actual forecast takes between 40 minutes and 1 hour to produce each morning, with an aim to have a forecast online by 8am.
 

The snow reports also take time to compile, especially during snowfalls when several updates can be made in a single day.
 

So, how can you help?... you will notice on some pages that there is a PayPal tip/donation box, where you can send us a tip, if you like what we are doing. There is no obligation to do so, but any donations will help the running costs of this site during the winter season. 

 

 

 

You can also become a patron of the site, via the Patreon website, which will host some of the content from the beginning of December. Becoming a patron is a great way of ensuring you receive the most accurate and up to date snow information from Chatel for the 2018/19 snow season. Again, there is no obligation to donate via Patreon,, which is free to join, however, any contributions will help make this site sustainable. 

Further information on how to join the Patreon part of the site will follow later in November.
