The last weekend of the season proved to be one of the very best! We (and everyone left in resort) tracked glorious fresh powder all day long on Saturday and Sunday. After two days of glorious sun, it snowed again today and the tree skiing on Schwarzsee was fabulous. Here are a few images from the weekend:
Snowfall alert: 50cm of fresh snow at Testa Grigia, 22cm at Schwarzsee. Snowfall is set to continue until Friday, with the sun coming out on Saturday and Sunday. The last weekend of the season promises to be epic!
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.
35cm of fresh powder snow everywhere, and up to 70cm on the high slopes such as Triftji! The result of a big snowfall on Sunday, and with the sun coming out today, it was one of the best days of the season:
After a very sunny week, we had a bit of rain in the village yesterday, and 4cm of fresh snow on the slopes. Today is glorious again with great heli-skiing and beautiful uncrowded pistes:
