Late Season Snow in Chatel   April 10th, 2012

All in all it’s been a very good ski season in Chatel and the Portes du Soleil, late season has been fun too with a mix of conditions.

The start of March was really warm with fantastic spring skiing to be had on the off piste after it have softened in the sun, then mid-month we were treated to an unpredicted 40cms of fresh powder for a few days. I always love it when the forecast says a maximum of 10cms and you wake up in the morning to over a foot of fresh snow.  A couple of the best days skiing of the season.

More sunshine for the end of March, before a slightly disappointing rainy first week of April. Although the rain did mainly come in the night so although the slopes where slushy in the daytime at least there wasn’t too much skiing in the rain.

But we’ve had a little bit of snow since and the pistes are in great shape again, plus a fair bit of snow forecast in the next few days.  So we’ll see what turns up but there’s still potential for a last bit of fresh powder this season.
