Swiss ski slopes, best ever say the lads

Crans-Montana: exceptional snow conditions right now

Those who skipped school and went skiing report in: "Best snow I've ever seen!" So here is an update on the Swiss Alps, at least in the Valais region, or more precisely, Crans-Montana:
webcams at 9am on Violettes are covered with giant flakes and the stuff is bucketing down - the pylons are disappearing. Great new snow on top of wonderful powder from earlier this week and more coming steadily for the next three days. Spring break skiing is a definite yes now. The sled runs are nice and long and well padded (hope you are, too).

Wish I had my own camera, but that will have to wait for tomorrow.

Bad news: not much sunshine until Monday. It's a small price to pay for the best skiing and snowboarding in a long time.
