With a series of October and November storms and sub-zero temperatures this weekend, winter has arrived in Verbier. We have a good base, 30-90cm deep with solid layers close to the ground. Hurricane force winds blew from the North Saturday, closing the lifts and wreaking havoc on the snow pack. Today was a bit of a mess for Tele Verbier. In typical early season unpreparedness, cues for tickets and lifts lasted close to an hour.
I went up for a run to have a look at what the wind did to the snow before the forecasted snows of tonight cover those slabs. Blue sky and fresh powder made for a real blue-bird day.
