03/03/2020: Today's Updates... Day 83...
Updated: Mar 4, 2020
Updates have been posted to the WhatsApp group today on what could easily be described as being the best morning / day of the season - certainly in terms of top to bottom cover and probably regarding snow quality and powder potential. The skies cleared nicely after what was a much heftier snowfall than expected, however, considering the conditions and the fact that it is still a French holiday week, it never got crazily busy, with the Linga car park only just over half full. Pistes this afternoon were really chopped up, but conditions on piste should be superb tomorrow after the overnight grooming.
Finally, for the first time this season, the snow cover on the Stade at Linga is approaching acceptable depths.
Unfortunately, the Combes, Cornebois and PLJ chairlifts suffered an electrical outage from mid-afternoon bringing a disrupted end to the day.
Next update - early tomorrow along with the forecast page update.
The view through the not so clear Linga telecabine window from this morning.
Winter returns (or you could say "arrives") to the village)...
Bonjour from Chatel... there is some excellent news with a measured depth of 25cm of fresh snow in the village this morning - more than expected and a wonderful bonus! Current air temp is -2C, with one or two flakes falling.
This morning's forecast is expected to be online at 7.20am... http://www.chatelweb.com/chatel_snow_forecast.php
