As we feared the front heading in around Friday does look like it's fading away Eastwards before hitting our part of the Alps. Getting cold though with very clear skies forecast as the High Pressure starts to dominate for at least the next week or so. Expect a sunny day for Courchevel & Méribel Valleys opening day on Saturday. The trend could be for milder weather next week but a bit far away yet. More at La Tania LIVE and the Full La Tania Weather Page.
Val Thorens opened on 21 November, a couple of days ahead of schedule and now most of the top area from La Folie Douce right around to the Cime Caron is open - around 14 lifts. See the Snow Report from Snow Retreat below from opening day.
Conditions for the special free "preview" day in Courchevel on 23/11 with the Verdons gondola and Saulire Cable Car open were perfect. It became very busy later on but Nick Ski and Ski-Dazzle from La Tania were on the first lift and made some great first tracks - see below.
