Fantastic Snow Conditions
We all know that Val d’Isere/Tignes is one of the highest resorts in Europe and therefore benefits from the early and late snow conditions every year. This season has been no exception, we had a huge amount of snow the first week of December which laid a fantastic base for the season. The only exception (!) was 2 weeks ago when it rained up to 3000m and caused us a week of trouble in the off-piste. The most recent storm has laid a nice layer of powder on top of that and ensured good skiing for the rest of the season.
Currently On Piste
There is wall to wall groomers!
Even La Face is in beautiful condition at the moment, the injected ice from the World Cup is long gone, leaving grippy snow on top (gets a little scraped in the late afternoon)
All other slopes are open and remain corduroy until late afternoon with the lack of traffic.
Currently Off Piste
The recent snow last week has left a layer of powder on the East, South and West faces at all altitudes. Though a while back now, an experienced instructor will be able to find some fresh tracks.
Alternatively, ski touring is a great option and get lots of fresh tracks.
The resort is extremely quiet off-piste.
