Paradiski Snow Conditions Report

We’ve finally had some more snow to top up the pistes in Paradiski! So what are conditions like now? Some members of the Les Arcs Winter Facebook group went out on a test run yesterday and reported back on their group page:

Wednesday 4 Jan 2017. “A fast ski over to the Bellecote Bowl in La Plagne and a few routes on firm chalky snow in the off piste area. Some hard packed polished places, but also some good firm grippy snow with a nice light covering of thin softer snow. Well worth the effort of getting across to the Bellecote bowl and a nice extra route on the way back as well!

Skiing in Les Arcs

Back in Les Arcs the central ridge in Arc 2000 bowl proved interesting. With fresh snow this is a great place to ride. Right now, take care as it is very icy! 

 

The pistes in Les Arcs and across La Plagne to the Bellecote were very firm with a softer layer on top during the morning making a pleasant ski across. On the return trip most pistes had become much more polished with a few softer spots, but not many!

The wind had picked up a little and this made the day seem very cold. There are a few stones and dirty patches coming through in some places on the more busy pistes, but the ski area has done a great job of keeping so much open as this is now the longest period without snow since the 1960’s I believe.

We are all hoping the clouds and cold temps bring more snow tonight, fingers and toes crossed!”
