A very Happy New Year to all!
2016 started with a stunning sea of clouds below the 3 Valleys:
...and was followed up today by a good 20cms of snow, with more due to fall throughout the course of this week.
The last couple of weeks I have been on 'piste & fine dining' duties, but normal service resumes on Monday!
Conditions off piste last week in the 3 Valleys were actually reasonable on the few viable routes - chalky snow with better grip than the majority of the pistes. All change now - caution will be needed with these first falls as we are still essentially in a 'start of season' situation, with hidden rocks a major hazard and instability to be expected on any steeper slope.
