There was a bit of a weather window this morning. Unfortunately I was a bit late and missed the best conditions before 10am.There is still snow at the bottom of the pistes at Pipay. From the Col d'Oudis I was in low cloud and even on piste it was hard to see much. It got lighter at the summit. The ski down was sticky fresh sticky snow at first but not bad below the col d'Oudis where the old firm snow was pretty skiable. Would have been better with some sunshine.


Low cloud, light snow from 1pm. Good snow below 1800m. Sticky, new snow, above.
