FIRST 6 MONTH WEATHER FORECAST OF THE COMING SEASON!!

Back again with the first look at the coming weather predicted for the coming winter season.

We were not too far off with the predictions last year, which is quiet something when you consider the mountains have their own mini systems to contend with as well as the main weather systems across Europe!

 

September 2011:

 Probably disturbed period due to the number of cyclones in the Carribean. First part of the month cold and unstable with snow falling as low as 1500m. Second part of the month will be sunny and unseasonably warm.

 October 2011:

 A huge anticyclone stretching from Russia to Europe will give very cold with any snow falling right to the valleys. This said it should for the most part be sunny and dry.

 November 2011:

Continuation of the blockage, with very cold periods, but for the main sunny and dry.

December2011:

More cold weather, with weak snowfalls, but also periods of stable sunny dry weather. Heavier snow falls expected for the end of the year.

January 2012:

End of the blockage permitting the  arrival of a west to north west currant carrying heavy snowfalls to both the mid and high mountain, near to the seasonal norm in temperatures.

February 2012:

Snow falls at the beginning of the month, then a return to anticyclonic weather of cold temperatures and sunshine.

FULLY FLEXIBLE ARRIVALS

We offer anyday arrivals in order to break the mould of the traditional Saturday to Saturday ski holiday.There are numerous people who miss the full advantage of their shift working patterns to gain the benefits of cheaper midweek flights so as to cut the cost of their ski holiday. 

At Ski Courchevel we welcome guests arriving and leaving any day of the week and for as many or few days as they wish to stay.We have already taken bookings for as little as three days and as many as eleven.

This flexibilty also gives the advantage of the Saturday skiing experience. Whilst everyone else is sat in airports or on the motorways you can enjoy the freedom of the pistes with very few people there with you! Plus quieter and less stressful transfers.

Please contact us to work through how, by changing your day of arrival and departure, we can improve your total ski experience and save you money as well!

LATEST WINTER WEATHER PREDICTIONS, OCTOBER 2010

Although the weather in the Alps is very unpredictable, there are those who track the air masses and have made the following predictions for the coming winter season.

These are general predictions and not in depth but will give a feel for the coming winter sports season.

October
Unsettled periods with warm gentle winds from the south or west, bringing mild spells of lovely sunshine and rain to lower mountains but snow to the higher mountains.

 November
Under the influence of a Northwest current, there will be weak unsettled periods bringing light snow to lower altitudes. However the cold air will also bring bright sunny days.

December
The Atlantic pressure system fed by cold air will bring dry, cold, sunny weather to the mountains whilst the valleys remain under low cloud.

January
Much the same as December but periods of snowfall to all altitudes of the mountain, cold air stream from the east.

February
Cold and sunny, some snowfall days, but as the sun rises in the sky it will be warmer on the southern lower slopes.

March
Late snowfalls to mid and upper mountains. Spring on the lower slopes!
