Update from the Alps via wePowder.com
Beware! The avalanche danger in most parts of the western and southern Alps is HIGH on Tuesday. We’re talking abouth the resorts in the following regions:
- French southern Alps
- the French Haute savoie
- parts of the Aosta and Piemonte
- almost every resort in the southern Alps central
- almost every resort in the southern Alps east
The resorts above got around 60-100 centimeters of freshies since Sunday night. Locally this has been even more and the locals in the south are talking about historical snowfall. The Serre Chevalieris experiencing a record snowfall. Lots of roads in the French southern Alps, Aosta and the Piemonte are closed, just like many lifts in the resorts. This heavy weather is moving to the southern Alps east on Monday evening.
Please keep in mind that lifts will be closed temporarily and that ski patrol will need more time than normal to secure the ski area. The avalanche danger will probably drop to ‘considerable (3 out of 5) on Wednesday and I expect more lifts to open by then. The treeruns will be really good. Anyway, ride safe and check the local avalanche bulletin daily on wePowder.com!
