Another 15cm of fresh snow fell overnight here in Val Thorens and more is on the forecast for the next few days.
Temperatures have plummeted too - minus 12C on summits this morning, which will be good for the snow but tough on the hands & feet!
All the lifts look open this morning and the pistes should be quiet so make the most of it if you are leaving late or ariving early and get out there!

Half Term Dump: 17th February 2014
Masses of snow for all
It seem's it hasn't stopped snowing here in Val Thorens, since Friday we have seen a series of heavy snowfalls.
With 15-20cm falling overnight on Friday we woke to some proper, light, powder snow.
And to add to Saturday's snowfall, it snowed all Sunday long too.
We tried to measure the new snow with a ruler this morning and it disappeared from view, so over 35cm fell.
What a great start to the holidays!
