2016/17 Snow Records

We automatically access and tabulate the snow reports produced by the resort and compare them with averages over the last ten years.
It is a rough guide because we find conditions are unpredictable even at short notice because they vary a lot from day to day, week to week, and year to year.

In the Alps, 2016-17 was the most unusual season we had experienced in 46 years of skiing. It was bitterly cold at christmas / new year and the worst drought for 150 years in France and Switzerland. This was a third season of poor snow at Christmas but NOT a trend! Previous seasons it did precipitate but was too warm.

The stats are misleading before Jan 3rd. We think they were midday temperature not 8am. Then at end of February they changed their format and our recording stopped - see previous year for march averages.

Note: white=OK, green=excellent, pink=poor
