The overnight rain hadn't done too much damage. The ski pistes were in good condition having been bashed overnight. The road up to Charmant-Som was hard with a lot of debris over the first km. Afterwards things got much nicer with largely quick snow to the summit with a bit of softer snow on NE facing sections of the road. This was at 9am mind so don't leave it late.
