Portes du Soleil - Chatel and Avoriaz - weekend 15th & 16th December 2007

Snow fell heavily over the area during the previous weekend and into the beginning of the week, giving fantastic cover for the time of year. Resorts were quoting well over a metre of snow on upper slopes.

Skiing and boarding conditions were superb. Temperatures were about -10°C in the car park as lifts opened, and only warmed up a little during the day. On-piste was excellent packed powder whilst off-piste was powdery bliss. If this had been part of the previous season, everyone would have been describing this as the best weekend of the season! Lift queues were non-existent and it was sunny all weekend - though we were looking down onto cloud in the valleys below.
