Re: No Snow No Fun

Verbier Col des Gentiannes, Lac des Vaux, Chaux were still great last week. Very hard packed snow but no ice. Lots of ice at Nendaz though, especially on the Prarion run (bruise on my elbow will confirm).

Are they the very very steep ones that end with a sheer drop, or am I misunderstanding you there...?
Yeah, those are the ones with lots of $hit... I mean very steep (sheer) drop...

Re: No Snow No Fun

Tortin 'the Wall' was still very white, but icy. These days, I watch from the bubble from Siviez to Lac des Vaux. Been there, done that, many times.
Sadly snowboarders are just ruining the moguls and the rhythm these days, scraping the tops- especially those who come down on toe edge all the way because they daren't look down or turn - any brown patches held 'within'!

Re: No Snow No Fun

I saw this weekend that they've been collecting snow from the 'off piste' areas to put on piste in La Tzoumaz and the Savoleyres side of Verbier. Pistes were a bit hard on the north side but not icy and they've got a lot of canon snow further down near the village. In the moguls and forest it was not nice, way too hard.
