SnoWatch Friday 07 March 2014 - Sun, Sun, Sun
As forecasted over 2 weeks ago, after more fresh snow earlier in the week, the high pressure continues to dominate with no let up of Sun, Sun, Sun in sight for the whole of next week and probably in to the week after - certainly no changes in the reliable timeframe. The regular systems that have been coming across the Atlantic just about all Winter are now pushed much further North - in fact North of the UK too.
So make the most of it, make the most of a 3 Valleys Pass, explore those far off ends of the ski areas and enjoy some long terrace lunches - there should be some afternoon Après outside in the sunshine next week too! Don't forget the sun screen and get those goggle tans sorted...
The meticulously groomed pistes are holding up really well despite school holidays continuing and the sun doesn't do half as much damage as warmer, cloudy weather with humid Foen wind and rain can. It's staying cool at night importantly and we should see some transformed Spring snow offering great skiing and boarding off piste too. Beware of unstable areas warming up though and expect the Loze Boulevard between La Tania and Méribel to close in the late afternoon on sunny days.
School Holiday Tips: Ski early, ski through lunch / lunch late, ski 1650, ski La Masse, ski Folyeres in the middle of the day - avoid bottlenecks at peak times of St Martin 2, Biollay, to/from 4th Valley and look for alternatives (Rhodos / Loze back from Méribel rather than Saulire / Pas du Lac and Plantrey rather than Coqs / Chenus (or drags) depending on queues - and remember free buses too if stuck in Le Praz for example, plus the free Ski Bus from Méribel to La Tania starts Mon 17/2 until 14/3 (Mon to Fri only).
