14/02/2019: Today's Updates... 6.15pm...
High pressure is expected to dominate the Chatel weather for quite some time and if anything is to go by, visitors should be treated to some really wonderful weather, with warm spring-like sunshine and plentiful snow. The snow conditions will be spring-like on the sunny aspect slopes, with generally excellent snow preservation on the shaded slopes.
Today was a touch warmer than yesterday, with some great conditions. Below is a photo from the Stade at Linga, where from Wednesday to Friday you can take part in timed races against the clock in slalom and GS. A couple of top racers open the race and set the time, with participants then graded according to how close the the openers time they can get.
These are open to all age groups, but are particularly popular with the youngsters. Details and entry are at the ESF office in Chatel.
Plentiful amounts of sun cream will be required over the coming days...
Bonjour - it is another clear start to the day here in Chatel with a temperature inversion bringing temperatures close to -5c just below the village.
Updates will appear on this page today and the forecast page is expected to be updated
towards 7.45am this morning.
