'Best snow of the season' falls in Alps
The Ski Club of Great Britain reports that snow has been falling all across the Alps, benefiting those skiing in Alpe D'Huez and those enjoying ski breaks in Les Deux Alpes.
Other resorts to have benefited from the flurries of powder include Tignes, La Plagne and various ski resorts in Austria.
"The conditions are quite simply the best of the season with light fluffy powder off piste and gorgeous soft snow on the piste," Ski Club member Sarah Vizard commented.
Roughly 50 centimetres of new snow fell in Verbier in the last week with ski conditions described by the Ski Club as "great".
Meanwhile, the Ski Club's Verbier rep described Easter bank holiday weekend as "the best weekend of the season".
