I just managed to sneak in a morning skiing before I jet off on holiday for a week. The snow showers last weekend have added a much needed top layer of snow and the conditions on the Tignes glacier are excellent. Queuing wasn’t a problem today, even on the Champany T-bar which is sometimes a slow turn around.
Unfortunately the chances of the Rossolin piste opening this autumn have been severely dashed. The 200kph winds that closed the glacier on Monday have caused catastrophic damage to the T-bars. It looks like the Vanoise chair is being prepared to shuttle the cross country skiers back to the funicular station, though that may prove to be a slow turn around for alpine teams who want to train on the lower slopes this half term.
