25/02/2019: Today's Updates... 7.10pm...


Blue skies again today... warm sunshine, spring conditions with plenty of good piste skiing and boarding to be found, though with a continual daytime thaw on the sunnier slopes, especially the lower ones, with a gradual deterioration on some slopes.

In terms of fresh snow, it has been 2 weeks now since we saw any, though the charts continue to show a change on the way. Friday may see some snow, before milder weather returns, however, some charts continue to show something rather more interesting from the middle of next week onwards. More on this on the forecast page in the morning...

One noticeable thing about today was that is did not seem as busy as last week. Yes, it is still busy on the mountain, however, parking wasn't an issue and the village does not seem as rammed. This is despite it being Paris holidays and also a holiday week for the Netherlands, as well as it being the second week of the local holidays.


Bonjour - skies are clear again this morning here in Chatel with temperatures between -3c and -4c just below the village. Another day of spring weather is on the way...

Updates will appear on this page today and the forecast page is expected to be updated

towards 7.30am this morning.

How you can help this season... you will notice on some pages that there is a PayPal tip/donation box, eg on the "About Us" page, where you can send us a tip, if you like what we are doing. There is no obligation to do so, but any donations will help the running costs of this site during the winter season. The more people who help, the better we can make this site.
