SWOARD ECS 2015 > weather forecast

Post by fivat » Tuesday 27 January 2015, 19:17

The best Web site for weather forecast in Zinal along to my experience is this one: www.meteocentrale.ch

For now, the situation is the following:

It will snow about 10-20 cm on Thursday and early Friday. Then it will be dry and cold, what is good for hard packed snow and excellent carving conditions.
During the event, from Saturday to Monday there will be no snow fall (except maybe some sleet) and it should be partially sunny. The conditions could be excellent!
We already had such circumstances in the past. If the visibility is good, this could be one of the best sessions. :bravo:

Today! :D

I will ask the technical director if they could groom on Friday evening. It could be possible if there is no snow fall planned in the night from Friday to Saturday.
We have no worries about Sunday and Monday as it will be dry (except maybe some sleet).

Fantastic photo Pokkis, although the carver made quite a strange turn if you trace back his track... ;-)

Have fun, I had to cancel my trip last minute unfortunately, may the slopes be wide and well groomed for you!

Cheers
