28/02/2020: Today's Updates... Day 79...


Snow conditions were the best they have been all week today, especially this morning, with some satisfaction for those seeking some powder action. It was also nice to see the sunshine return!

There looks like being another precipitation event moving in during the second half of the afternoon tomorrow. Estimated snow/rain limits based on the latest info area as follows:

4pm to 6pm: 1700m to 1600m

6pm to 8pm: 1600m to 1500m

8pm to 10pm: 1500m / 1450m

10pm to midnight: 1500m/1450m to 1350m/1250m

Midnight to 2am: 1250m

So, at the moment, it looks like being an above the village event in terms of accumulating snowfall, with perhaps 5cm to 10cm at 1800m. More on this on tomorrow morning's forecast update...


Cold and clear early this morning with snow cannon in operation. The roads are very, very busy!


Bonjour from Chatel... the wetter period which arrived during the latter part of the afternoon and early evening in the village, reverted back to snow, (as expected on our forecast), bringing another 1cm to the village before it dried up. It is currently clear, cold (-5C at 1200m) and less windy! Snow cannon are currently making snow across the area.
