You can but you'd have to hike up the last bit. Obviously if all three lifts that access it are closed, then it won't be pisted, patrolled etc and is officially closed. Not that that ever stops anyone in France still skiing a run. Laughing

@kitenski, LT is 100% shut. Even the ski lodge is closing tonight which is annoying. It used to stay open for a few days after the lifts shut to still serve seasonnaires. Good job my fridge is full. Very Happy

If you mean the track that contours around the side of the top of the Saulire bowl, it allows access to M and Pylones, but not direct to Suisses - you would need to drop in from the ridge.

You could get to the Suisse piste by just walking up 100m from the start of that track to the top of Vizelle - but of course you may find that the everything has been removed (sign posts, piste markers, poles marking hidden rocks etc).

Still lots of good snow around Courchevel yesterday afternoon. Grand Boisses good over in 1650. Very quiet on slopes, even just above 1850 centre.

I'm surprised they didn't extend the season by a week or two. That said webcam images of the Meribel valley show much of the south facing snow is already gone despite the great season.

Some nice skiing available all day today around LM and VT. Big improvement on the heavy gloop of yesterday. Clear skies should mean that tomorrow is also good. Piste du jour for me was Boismint. December at the top, March at the bottom and much flatter than usual. A whole season in one run. Very Happy

On Monday, Jerusalem was still fine ‘til half way point and completely empty. Worth doing for lovely roller coaster run, then Corbeleys restaurant, which is open all this week.

Tuesday was Orelle day mostly and snow in great condition until about 2.30pm.
Orelle side still seems to have good base, didn’t see any rocks or grass poking through. Care needed off pistes though, with rising temps causing potential slides.
Restaurant at bottom lift hub was sunbathing scene from 12 onwards.

Great conditions in Courchevel this morning, just a shame they only have 4 lifts open... on one hand I can understand it - hotels are shut so no clients so cut lifts right down, on the other hand if they pressured more hotels to stay open to the end, or kept more lifts running to the end then maybe they would have more clients..!!



Great skiing on all the Saulire/Vizelle runs, just a matter of timing it right re softness...

They've reopened Vizelle but only until 1pm. I'm on it now. Must have been put under pressure, it was definitely shut on Monday when I was there.

so my long weekend of t-shirt skiing in the sunshine in Val Thorens this weekend, may not be so sunny after all! :/ Oh well, that's the way the weather gods roll, still can't wait!

How are conditions looking in VT? Orelle still open?

Almost all runs are open but not all lifts. Peclet looks doomed which is a pity as the glacier chair is one of the best at end of season and now you can't access it.

Orelle still open but softening before VT. Runs off the Caron and Grand Fond holding up best.

LM good in the morning but closes Friday so depends when your weekend starts. Still plenty of good skiing till about 3pm after which everything is heavy.

Cheers @Raceplate (again! Smile )

Shame about Peclet, is it just the warmer weather effecting it? (I assumed the runs on the plein sud side would be first to go).

First day skiing on sat so will miss LM, which is a shame. Planning on skiing most of the day and then having a long late lunch from about 3pm so hopefully it’ll all work out nicely!

Peclet's broken down. Been shut for a week and doesn't look like reopening. The cabins were vibrating quite badly for a couple of days beforehand which is definitely not normal so there's obviously something wrong. Pity because glacier chair is very often my absolute last run of the season - I love the view from up there.

That is a real shame, it’s a lovely run from the top all the way back into town.

I called at the Peclet Bottom station today to ask the ski patrol about the lift. The patroller i spoke to said it should be open tomorrow.

Fingers crossed!

Great skiing in the sun today. Some excellent north facing pistes and surprisingly good snow for most of the day. Lots of heavy, slushy stuff later but mitigated by the slush moguls. Great fun! Very Happy

Perfectly good plan. I'm still getting about 10k vertical/day going out at 10am and knocking off around 4pm. Would love to sack it off at 3pm and get smashed but I have to drive back to LT... Sad

Anybody wanting an independent late season blast VT is open till the 8th of May you will have the area to yourselves. We are on a Club Med trip and they close this weekend. Had some great skiing today over in the 4th valley, some good spring snow high up and a bit of a slush fest lower down with lovely blue skies meaning great definition. Overall good late season conditions. Lobster linguine for lunch sat outside in t shirts beats sat in an office.
😎⛷️👍
