IT’S SNOWING.. YEE HA!
It’s about time too!
Here it is, huge snowfall in the alps, as snow fronts come in one after the other, with the French Alps set to take the brunt of it.
After a little too much sunshine and nothing but hardpack in this early season it’s now time to grab some pow.
With the news lately having focused on very small, low altitude resorts and their lack of the white stuff, you’d be forgiven if you thought this was the case across the Alps, but actually on the whole, it’s been a fairly normal start to the season, with Val D’Isere enjoying one of it’s best starts to a season in many year… The FIS even moved a world cup from America to Val just to take advantage of the snow!
Have a look at the latest pictures and see for yourselves.
Still not convinced, then take a look at the video of the snow clearance that’s happing in Val Thorens now!
For those travelling soon please remember, that with such drastic change in snow conditions comes huge avalanche risk. Anyone venturing off piste should only be doing so with a guide, stay safe out there!
