A system of low pressure, cold weather is moving down and across the Alps dumping a great amount of new snow. The forecast is for more snow for the next week at least. The avalanche danger rating is at 3 with potential for human trigger slabs as we had some high wind all the way down the valley floor.
Skiing condition are great with great powder snow, cold, soft snow and for all of you planing to ski tours later this winter, this coming spring the glaciers are filling well and the amount of snow above 2,000 meters is incredible.
Below is a video of a ski techniques course organize by the British Mountain Guide association and the Fred Harper memorial trust and Swiss Mountain guide plus Leysin ski resort.
