Word is filtering back from the alps about enormous amounts of new snow in the Savoie and Haute Savoie regions. Rumours of snowfalls up to 1m in depth have been heard quietly whispered. At last a decent big snowfall for some areas. Whilst temperatures have fallen they are still pretty warm and there was some wind with the snowfall so avalanches remain a significant hazard at the moment. So get out there and make the most of this season’s biggest dump but be careful!
