Kathryn: A little piste-side powder

Location: Les Houches
Snow: Shallow powder on a good base
Weather: Heavy snowfall, some wind

I probably wouldn’t have skied today if I didn’t have a friend visiting but pretty glad that I did get out for a few hours in the morning.  Not many lifts were running but crowds were also less than I had imagined they would be so there were still some good turns to be had, mostly lapping the Kandahar chairlift and playing off the sides of the piste.

Snow was falling increasingly heavily all morning but temperatures were also rising so things were a little heavier low down.  Should be some good days on the mountain coming up.

Got a comment, question, or your own report from elsewhere in the Chamonix valley? Leave a comment below (Facebook login required).
