Snow Sculptures…

Another amazing snow mound created by the snow cannons – can’t remember seeing them this big before, and they’re all the way up Folyeres. Thanks to Mutzig Dave for the pic.

Magic carpet lift gets prepared

The kids beginners lift, the moving "magic" carpet has been serviced today and still the snow cannons blow. Amazing size mounds of man made snow continue to lie all the way up Folyeres to the top gondola station. A huge one here in the middle of the piste waiting to be flattened by the army of piste bashers.

Ferg gets to Bouc Blanc First

Ferg skinned up to the top for what he calls “real first tracks” – piste bashers already at work, snow cannons have been at work all the way up…

Snow Cannons Blowing Hard

Massive mounds of snow cannoned snow all around La Tania and all the way up to the Bouc Blanc. Even with all the recent snow the Pisteurs are not sitting on their Laurels and taking the opportunity to make as much snow as possible while the real cold temperatures remain. When all this gets the piste basher treatment there’ll be a really good base in place before the lifts open.
