English Weather, News, Ski Report - January 29, 2024



Today the mild weather is set to continue. However, a veil of cloud can be expected across our sky, with cloud cover thickening up, potentially blocking out the sun in the afternoon.
The wind is calm up high this morning, averaging 5-10 km/hr at Pisaillas. The warming trend continues locally, with tropical temperatures this morning. At 9 a.m. it is -1°C in the village, and +5°C at the top of Solaise and +1.5°C at Pisaillas. Today we can expect a top of 6°C at 2000m.


After a generally calm day for traffic yesterday, new blockages are to be feared this week on the roads, particularly in Savoie. Yesterday, the president of the FNSEA announced a “total” mobilisation of protests for the coming week. No precise information is available currently.

Over on Solaise, all lifts will open on time, including the 3000 drag lift. The bottom section of the Marmottons run is closed due to a lack of snow. Everything is open on the snowfront, including the tobogganing area.

In the Bellevarde sector, everything is open and in great condition; including the freestyle area such as the Mode du Gypaete, Expert Border Cross, and snowpark. Skiing in Tignes can be accessed via either the Tommeuse or Borsat lifts.
