Paradiski Snow Report 12.03.16

By Snowcrazy Chris, report and pic taken from the Les Arcs Winter Facebook page.

Blue Sky and powder! Yes, we still managed to find some untracked powder and not another person in sight! Transfer Saturdays are a great day to ski!

Spent time in La Plagne and Les Arcs today and managed to get on the Bellecote again. We went down the Canadian Couloir to start, then onto the central ridge and found more space to put down fresh tracks.

Then back over to Les Arcs and lunch. We watched a little of the Slopestyle competition then headed for the Arc 2000 bowl. Another short couloir with good snow inside, but crusty and frozen on the way out. 

Finally back to the Arc 1600 side and down through Malgovert Forest and home.

Another fun day in very mixed conditions, but with plenty of good snow to enjoy.

The pistes in most places we went today were quite hard packed and icy so you need to control your speed in the busy areas. There is a softer layer of snow on the top surface where the sun has not cooked the slopes, but many pistes now have moguls even on some blue runs.

Most piste natures are still in good condition, but do have some rocks coming through. If you keep in the shady areas there is still light fluffy snow around.

Anyone just arriving should have a fun week as there is plenty of snow around and you can get to all areas without any problems. The snow parks are open and so is the Air Bag.
