With temperatures hitting 24C during last weekend and rain, this week, that's it our ski season, following a crazy and disappointing end for spring touring. Even though there is plenty of snow up the mountain, we have not had the classic freeze/thaw we'd expect.

The ups and downs of the weather, this winter with rain in January and snow in May, is all pointing to climate change creating the oscillations in temperatures and weather patterns and the reason why El Nino is currently transitioning to La Nina. without any ENSO-neutral in between.

Figures have revealed that April was the hottest globally since records began in 1940 and the 11th record-breaking month in a row..If this goes on, it's not good news for the future of ski resorts.  

So it's finally time to put the skis away and get the road bike out (if it ever stops raining!) - check on the classic routes that make Serre Chevalier such a popular destination for cyclists, including the Tour de France, passing through here in Serre Chevalier on 2nd July.

The webcam (located here) will be static between snowfalls, focusing on the Le Bez piste opposite STYLE ALTITUDE HQ and, often, the 40 odd sparrows that feed on our terrace. 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. You can zoom in by pinching or using your mouse wheel.
