05/04/2019: Today's Updates... 6.15pm...


Sensational conditions here in Chatel and the PDS today!

The clear skies overnight resulted in the fairly wet snow lower down transforming into something rather more powdery, so the early birds had some excellent conditions from top to bottom. Some early high cloud meant that the sunshine was hazy first thing, so the powder took a while to get heavier in the sunshine, allowing for some fantastic April off piste. As the morning wore on, the strength of the sun and a rising freezing level did mean things got much heavier, but the legs had already done a good morning's worth of powder by then, so there was little to complain about!

Looking ahead and it looks like a bit of an April showers scenario coming up, with snow/rain limits perhaps favourable at times for the upper half of the mountain...

Early morning on Linga.
