Snowline: 950


Season close already at St Hilaire du Touvet so we came up mainly to have lunch but also to ski a few of our favourite off pistes: Le Canyon, Upper Fantom Village, Establissements, Zombie (aka fantom) Village. Great snow, maybe the best cover we've seen for the closing day. It has been a short season, we only had enough snow cover on the 29th December 2014. Indeed we'd been up a couple of days before Christmas clearing brushwood and rubbish from the Zombie Village trails, something that really proved worthwhile this season. Today we pushed out and skied down to the main hospital via some forest trails. Snow was a bit soft in the sun on the east facings slopes, transformed in the woods. The Canyon was still in good condition with excellent snow cover.
