20/01/2020: Today's Updates... Day 40...

Updated: Jan 22, 2020


The beautiful weather continued this afternoon, with cold temperatures allowing the snow making to continue and the lights of the cannon can still be seen on Linga, so hopefully this will continue for the third night in succession. The daytime weather is set to get a little milder from tomorrow, so the sunnier slopes should feel much more pleasant again.

Today's model updates continue a mostly dry theme for the next 7 days, although a dusting on Saturday cannot be ruled out. Some charts suggest the 29th might be a day which sees a change, however, at the moment, despite our forecast update this morning mentioning a change, there are no convincing signs of when it might arrive.

It is a beautiful day here in Chatel, however, it is another really cold one, which is allowing snow making to continue for the second day running...
