The third week of April saw winter temperatures return, but with glorious blue skies and sun. Snow conditions also returned to great winter grippy hard pack on the upper slopes, and soft spring snow down below. There was as ever some great off-piste to be found even though there had been no fresh snow for a while. Have a look at the video.

The week leading up to Easter was perfect, with glorious sun and blue skies. The snow was excellent too, off-piste there was a good mix of preserved powder and easy spring corn. All resort runs were open, and the piste conditions were winter packed powder between 3,800 and 2,500m, with smooth spring snow below. The photos below were taken between April 10-15 in the Triftji Back Bowls where we found some soft powder and smooth spring snow. The videos are here.
