• The Chatel Snow Report

29/01/2019: Today's Updates... 6.00pm...


The skies cleared this morning and conditions on the ski area were fantastic, after the recent snowfalls and the nice top up of the previous evening. The snow was dry and powdery and generally blissful, though the 0c isotherm did rise this afternoon, making some sunnier off piste slopes a little heavier - but overall it has been great. The cloud cover has increased during the second half of the afternoon and we now await a new series of snowfalls, the first of which is set to arrive later this evening. We should have a nice fresh covering of snow in the village overnight, which we'll report on early tomorrow morning.

End of the day on Barbossine.

Bonjour - a further 2.5cm of snow has fallen in the village since the last update yesterday evening, bringing the total since 7am Monday to 13.5cm at 1200m and the total since Sunday morning to 39.5cm. The snowfall of yesterday evening was a very nice bonus... currently close to -7c...
