After a week of blue skies, the clouds moved in on Sunday evening and the snow started to fall quickly. 24 hours later and it was still coming down thick and fast!
Around 35cm have fallen down in Tignes Le Lac with around 50cm at altitude. Winds mixed with the fresh snow will have created some dangerous layers in the snowpack so that although sunshine and blue skies are forecast for Tuesday, the lifts will be slow to open due to avalanche blasting by the safety patrol.
Up to a metre of fresh snow is forecast later this week, making conditions pretty perfect for the upcoming holidays.
