Milder weather, but prepared pistes holding up well lower down. Folyeres skiable down it’s entire length for those prepared to hike up. Great skiing in Val Thorens and fresh snow high up, lift companies working hard preparing pistes right across the Three Valleys.

Kaisers live tonight

And no snow. . . (they predicted the riots though)

Further pisting

Further bashing at 4.30 today of Folyeres which is skiable all the way down to the gondola and still more than 2 weeks to the opening of La Tania.

reservoir emptying out as the snow mounds grow

View from corner of Arolles piste looking down on to the snow cannon reservoir. Only half full as they have made so much snow, mounds up to 4 metres high!

The last chance. . !

perfect conditions at top of La Tania telecabine

Beautiful sunny day, over 35 cms of powder, freshly pisted, no body about, what perfect conditions.

If only the lift was open…..

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…
