Dream conditions once again. Half a metre of fresh powder falling on Saturday night, and an immediate return to blue skies. 

Typical spring conditions in the last week has allowed stable sliding on all aspects & steep lines. A highlight for me, was skiing over 1200m of vertical ascent on the East face of the Pointe de la Sana.

In resort, a well needed top up has covered all the rocks and grass that had started to appear. Higher up, the snow is light, dry, soft and grippy. Lower down, especially below the freezing level,  the snow will  transform into spring corn by the middle of the week accutane after some prolonged settled and sunny conditions.

Looking ahead, the weather looks to be settled with clear skies and high temperatures until the weekend where we look to have another round of snowfall over the weekend and into April

We can guarantee the very best conditions across the Alpes on one of our Heli ski Trips, with access to the roof of the alpine. Departing from your chalet in the Tarentaise Valley, we will head to Italy, where runs of over 2500 vertical metres are possible with the safety of your fully certified IFMGA Mountain Guide.
