The village a few mins ago...


Another 5cm of snow has fallen in the village since the last update - bringing the total to 12cm for this snowfall. The distribution of showers has been in our favour so far.

Currently snowing.


Most of the ski area has been closed so far this morning due to the very strong winds, with the Pierre Longue at PLJ the only chair open - so there is only very limited skiing and boarding at the moment, in blizzard conditions - ie blowing snow. The road to PLJ was very slippery this morning with one or two vehicles getting stuck.

Another 2.5cm has fallen at our location, bringing the total recorded so far in the village to 7cm since late yesterday evening.

Currently snowing again...
