It's Going To Dump Snow This Week

It's Going To Dump Snow This Week

It may feel a little premature to get excited, but there is 30cm forecast to fall in one day this week! The next three days will see a sprinkling of snow before a huge dump on Friday that will be followed by heavy snowfall on Saturday.

Basically, pack your transceiver, rucksack, probe and shovel, book a guide or off piste lesson and hire the fattest skis or snowboard you dare. This weekend is going to be epic. And what's even better is all the forecast data is based on the resorts mid-station, imagine what it's going to be like at the top of the Grande Motte, Pic Blanc, Cime de Caron or Mount Fort!

Pow, pow, pow, pow, pow, pow, pow...
