• The Chatel Snow Report

22/11/2018: Today's Updates... 6.00pm...


Clear skies have been the order of the day here in Chatel and the photo below is from a late afternoon jog up to Saix, where the view never fails to disappoint!

A glance at the latest models this evening brings little resolution to any detail beyond the weekend period, though both the GFS and UK Met Office models operational runs are suggesting some potentially very mild air encroaching on the area during the second half of next week, which is not really what we want to see. All that is still a relatively long way off but it will be discussed further on tomorrow morning's forecast update, which will also discuss the potential for snowfall tomorrow night, following the chance of some foehn conditions beforehand.

Over the weekend, we should start to have a much better idea of whether there is any chance of anything opening for the first weekend in December.

Stay tuned and bye for now...

The view from the Col du Saix late this afternoon.


The skies are clear here in Chatel this morning, which is good news for snow retention in general, apart from on the sunniest slopes. There is not a great deal to report since our forecast page update this morning, as we await further info from the models regarding precipitation on Friday night and next week... next update this evening...

Looking up to Super Chatel this morning.


Bonjour from Chatel. The forecast page has just been updated a few minutes ago and we expect an update on this page later this morning.
