28/12/2019: Today's Updates... Day 17...
Snow conditions were generally excellent today for the last week in December, with the resort operating almost normally, with the odd exception such as the Stade piste at Linga. There was plenty of soft snow to enjoy this morning, which became rather choppy this afternoon as the volume of people increased, however, the weather and scenery more than made up for that. Some valley fog brought some spectacular views!
Photos below from this afternoon.
It is getting busier in the village, so expect some crowded pistes in many areas over the coming days, on what is normally one of the the busiest weeks of the season.
Blue skies and some great snow conditions this morning!
The latest lift status can be found on the following pdf. This is updated every time there is a change and is probably the most reliable source of lift and piste status information...
Early view towards Linga...
