It has been another busy week in Morzine and Les Gets. It’s the final week of the half term period and this week it has been the turn of the Dutch, Belgians and Parisians to hit the slopes. It has possibly been the busiest week since New Year, but things look set to get a lot quieter from this weekend onwards.
The forecast had suggested that there would be a lot of fresh snow this past week and, whilst there has been some, it has not quite lived up to the billing. Part of the problem was that the temperatures have remained reasonably warm, meaning that there was heavy rainfall in Morzine itself. The freezing level was generally at about 1100m to 1200m however, so anywhere above town there was usually some fresh snow to be found. There was some snowfall at the start of the week, and then on Thursday a further 10cm fell. Some slopes had been starting to look slightly brown, so any fresh snowfall is very welcome.
