Oh my word. You had to be there. Over the last 3 days we skied somewhere around 120 cm cumulative of the lightest fluffiest powder I've seen in a long time. Thigh deep in places and needed to give buddies enough space to let the powder trail dissipate or you couldn't see. A snorkel may have helped too.

Although so many people venture just-off piste these days we even managed to find some totally untracked pitches yesterday at lunchtime. Also, a number of usually undoable (because of cover needed) routes were skiable - e.g. saw tracks directly under the Prodains cable car.

OK, it's the vacances scolaires, so the lifts were busy and some of the popular blues and reds were unusually bumpy and icy (at the same time) just with traffic scraping off the new stuff. That said, the heavy snowfall Monday and Tuesday kept many people indoors (fools!) and around the quieter parts (Nyon, Les Gets and Mont Cheri) lift lines were avoidable or non-existent. Avoriaz a bearpit however.

In the morning though the pistes were perfect everywhere.

A local suggestion was that as every station pretty much is open with every lift running then for once there was actually adequate capacity for the peak weeks.
