La Grave Skiing Conditions – 05/02/10

Chris showing good style

Back on the planks again – so just a quick rundown on the latest ski conditions down here.

This week we’ve been off piste skiing in La Grave – we had some fresh snow last weekend and very low temperatures for the first few days of the week.  Strong winds affected the snowpack quite a bit, but there was still some nice snow around if you knew where to look and/or were prepared to do a bit of skinning. 

The glacier up at La Grave has been good in particular – this week we’ve skied la Grave, Serre Chevalier, Les Chazelets and yesterday we found great powder whilst out touring at the top of the valley.  Today it went mental with 40-50cm of fresh powder falling, so we did too!
There’s more snow and low temperatures due over the next few days…
