3 Valleys conditions - Spring has arrived!

Today I was back in the 3 Valleys doing some steeps coaching for Paul O'B. Compared to Monday & Tuesday it felt like a different season of the year, with blue skies, and (very) warm temperatures in the sun. We skied widely around the top of Courchevel and the Mottaret area, and its fair to say that after today, the only place to go for soft snow will be true North slopes. Any sunnier aspects are now in the process of transforming (ie crusty!), but not yet fully transformed to spring snow...

With high pressure here to stay for the foreseeable future it looks like it might be time to start hunting out some corn snow turns quite soon!
