Latest Pics Around La Tania As Snow Cannons Tested Before Snow Next Week

Looking across to Biollay from Chenus

The Snow Cannons are finally firing up in #LaTania this evening as colder weather sets in and more snow is forecast from Saturday and next week. Looks like this was just a test and they will be in full operation next week.

Perfectly normal for the snow to disappear from the warm ground on lower slopes in November but currently above average cover above 1900m.

Courchevel 1850 were making snow yesterday and the piste bashers were getting to work.

The new netting across the red Moretta Blanche piste down to La Tania where it diverts all traffic down the green Plan Fontaine to resort level.

The latest pics from the Moretta Village development – still working /spon it before the main snowfalls of Winter at this level and they pack up until the Spring.

Above 1900m the snow cover is above average, so at present this is above 1850. Things set to change next week and temperatures dropping.

Snow cover looking decent above 1850

Meanwhile Val Thorens has the following lifts open for it’s “Grande Première this weekend:

Funitel Thorens
Funitel Grand Fond
