Tignes and Val D’isere Backcountry Report 10/04/17

Backcountry Report 02:12 1

Wow, what a week! Temperatures soaring up to 15 degrees and bluebird skies everyday; Perfect conditions for you fair weather skiers. It looks set to carry on throughout this week with the potential of some snow at the weekend.

I was fortunate to do a reverse Heli Ski this week, where we skied Mickey’s ears, and was amazed at the snow our guide was able to find. I honestly had some of my best turns of the season. Whether it was spring corn, or hidden cold powder on north facing slopes, i couldn’t believe that this snow was still around after the recent weather. 

Piste conditions have very much been transformed by the effects of spring. A little icy in the morning, but thick sugar by mid day. With the resort super busy for the Easter holidays, many of the busier runs are just sugar moguls by lunch time. Our advice is to try and move round the mountain with the sun and stay high!

We still have opportunities to get in a Helicopter before the end of the season, and can guarantee the best snow across the Alps. We can tailor a package to suit all abilities and budgets. With only a few weeks of the season left, book now to make sure you don’t miss out!
