Proper Winter Snow Fall in Verbier: 21st November 2013
Our first proper dump of snow this winter for Verbier
Well, it's finally here. We have had dustings, smatterings and sprinklings in Verbier, and each one has been better than the last, but last night we had our first proper dump of snow. Over 6 inches of snow fell last night in Verbier, even down in resort!
This morning there was fifteen centimetres of snow down in Verbier and the snow under foot creaked like the door to castle Dracula. The mountains are hidden behind a blanket of cloud at the moment and the roads are receiving attention as the driving conditions are now more precarious than they were yesterday. Caution is advised until the roads are cleared properly.
There is a more snow forecast for the rest of the day and patches of sunshine returning at the weekend with cold temperatures for the rest of the week. The lifts have already opened in Verbier up top with weekend openings of the Lac de Vaux, but with this fresh dump there may be more pistes open this weekend. Thanks to Ski Verbier for the winter wonderland photo.
End of May Dump : 29th May 2013
Talk of the lifts re-opening in Verbier this weekend..
We had around 30cm of snow fall overnight with more on the way and loads over May keeping good cover on upper areas.
With a very good quality snow line above Ruinettes it sounds as if Lac de Vaux and Attelas to Ruinettes pistes will open and the Le Chable to Verbier and Medran bubbles will be open for getting up there and hopefully putting bikes on too.
However the weather is meant to stay unstable and there could be heavy snow over the weekend. 'some part of the ski area may open at some time over the weekend' seems the best TeleVerbier can promise right now at this early stage in the week.
More info tomorrow when we're expeciting to hear if the lifts will be re-opened for the weekend or not...
A Mid April Dump: 10th April 2013
Nothig spring-like about Verbier right now!
10-15cm of fresh snow fell over Verbier yesterday with the freezing level half way down the valley to Le Chable. The snow did not lie on the roads and quickly melted off paths and cars as temperatures remained in flux. The avalanche hazard level is 3 out of 5. The mixed weather continues with more snow on the way.
Another March Snowstorm: 18th March 2013
More snow falling as we head towards Easter
Around 10cm of fresh snow fell overnight with more on the way. Almost all of the ski area is open with the exception of Mont Gele. The current avalanche risk is 2 out of 5 but that may change in the coming days. Temperatures are variable and currently flat light is making visibility tricky but some sunny moments are shining through. The roads in resort are currently covered with snow and the freezing level looks to stay at around 1,000m over the next few days.
Mid March Verbier Dump: 14th March 2013
10-15cms of fresh
10-15 cms of fresh snow fell overnight with more on the way. Vallon d'Arbi/ Col des Mines and Mont Gele are currently closed. Despite the fresh snow the risk of avalanche has not risen and is still at 2 out of 5. It's snowing and cold at the moment and there's poor visibility up the mountain but fresh snow on the piste and off. In town currently very icy on paths and roads so take care out there.
