A mild week with warmer temperatures due after the weekend
Ellie Mahoney | Alpe d'Huez Editor | published: 3rd April 2014
It's been a week of light winds and temperatures just above freezing, but sadly not much sun. The snow clouds have come over again, but don't promise much more than a few light flurries in the next couple of evenings.
Take a look at the video from Will Norman for how the pistes are looking just now.
On piste there's plenty of snow cover, although as you'd expect at this time of year it gets a bit slushy lower down later in the day. The best thing to do is to get out early to enjoy firmer snow, and head up as high as you can... and then there's always ski touring or cross country skiing, if you've got the kit and the inclination.. :-)
Enjoy the last few weeks - Vaujany & Oz ski areas are set to close on the 21st April, with the main ADH area closing on the 26th.

After last weekends dump of snow, we were hoping it would continue snowing all week to make sure we finish the last few weeks of the season with a bang. Sadly all it loks like doing this week is sending us a few snow fluuries, but hey, some snow's better than no snow isn't it!? more »

Conditions have been pretty good recently with around 2.5m of snow at the top of the mountain (yes not as much as the Scottish ski resorts with their 4-5m) but then you've not got as big a ski area and such amazing views as you have in Alpe d'Huez! more »

OK so it might not be a mega dump of snow, but every little helps! The snow clouds are back making visibility a bit rubbish again on the pistes, but at least it's snowing. There could be about another 10-15 cm at around 2000m throughout today & tomorrow, and we'll end on a bright sunny day on Friday to finish the week off nicely. more »
