• The Chatel Snow Report

05/03/2020: Today's Updates... Day 85...


It has been (and still is) a very wet day here in Chatel. The snow/rain boundary was hovering around the Plaine Dranse area this morning and early this afternoon, however, that reportedly rose higher this afternoon. Fortunately, the accumulating snow line will be heading back down tonight, though the snow may be marginal for the village for much of the evening.

To add to today's gloom, the Rock The Pistes Festival has been cancelled due to the Coronavirus.

An almost deserted Linga car park this afternoon. We should see better scenes tomorrow...
