21st March - Powder all week

~ Saturday 22nd March 2008

Just back from a fantastic week touring and off piste skiing in Grimentz. The best snow of the winter, fresh tracks all week. The lift area has great off piste, and with a little touring the area is huge.

With 40cm of fresh snow on friday the end of season is looking very good.

14th march - lots of new snow

It's been a week of wild weather with lots of snow, cloud and wind. Some great skiing too, making the most of the sunny spells. Arolla has been deserted, so fresh powder tracks every day of the week. Last run on Wednesday was untracked from la Forcla to Arolla. The picture is yesterday below the col des Ignes, blue skies at last!Smooth telemarking in les Ignes todat
