It's definitely Spring skiing! The morning's are beautiful, with freshly groomed pistes being soft underfoot. I took the Pyramides drag lift up to the top of 1650 today and the snow was was in good condition. Inevitably after lunch, below 1800m does become fairly heavy but if you hug the peaks of Saulire, Crux Noir and Vizelle, you can still find great snow!
