Brilliant Skiing Conditions – March 2013 Saturday, 23 March 2013
Conditions last weekend in les Gets can only be described as fantastic. On Saturday, it was beautiful, clear skys, recent snow, temperature probably around minus 1 or minus 2, excellent snow on the pistes and not crowded at all.
On Sunday it started snowing again, the top of Mont Chery was like a blizzard – when I got off the ski lift from the far side, normally, you ski down a slope – this time the wind was so strong that I was stationary!...anyway...despite the blizzard at the top, once onto the other side of the mountain, there was no wind at all and skiing conditions were amazing.
There has been a lot more snow since then – so we look set for an outstanding end of season.
The picture opposite was taken on Monday 18th March, this is the ski back route, to Chalets: Hastings, Senlac, Panda, Chavannes and Le Lapye. We also now have a full You Tube Video of the detailed ski back route to Chalets: Hastings, Senlac, Panda, Chavannes and Le Lapye - this was put together more for people who want to actually ski the route, rather than for 'marketing purposes' - so is a little long - you can see the video opposite:
