Hopefully the Phoney Season is now over.....

Even though the Pre-Opening Weekend (this weekend is cancelled) forecasts are now looking much better for the next week or so, with the Official Opening, next weekend, 10th.

It's been four weeks since we arrived and typically, even with the lifts not open we would have clocked up a good few sorties on the skis, touring up in the resorts of both here in Serre Chevalier and Montgenevre and further away from the resort up around Lautaret and the Col du Granon.

And in those four weeks, we've also seen the norm of promised forecasts failing to deliver once we get nearer the day, more on that here, so it's been running & cycling to get the legs strong, in some very crisp freezing conditions.

Tomorrow, Sunday 4th, snow accumulations will be interesting, and hopefully will be enough to actually put the skis down onto the snow at some point!

Though there is still some disagreement between the various models on how much we'll see, but YR.NO (image above) has been the one who first called it, whilst the others were blank, and for the rest of the week it's a similar picture, though it might well be rain lower into the valley?

The webcam (located here) will be static during more mundane conditions, but when it's snowing, during the day (09:00 - 17:00),  the cam will zoom to three pre-set points and stay there for 60 secs before moving again. And the good news is that, finally, we have fibre broadband here!
