The slopes of Les Arcs were busy today – between holidaymakers, Sunday locals and kids race clubs it was difficult to find an empty slope.
The snow in Arc 2000 is still holding up well; the north facing slopes on the Plagnettes side are best. The off piste is becoming moguled but providing soft and forgiving snow.
The more popular routes such as the Grand Col are starting to wear thin. Despite the closed signs, people are skiing the black mogul run which is littered with rocks and stones.
Elsewhere, the snow in Les Arcs is becoming very Spring-like. The free thaw temperatures are leaving a very firm base with very loose slush like snow on top.
The forecast for tomorrow is cloudy skies in the morning with potential for snow tomorrow above 2,000m but rain below. This won’t do great things for the pistes but might actually help in the longer term for the off piste conditions.
