Around midday the snow had eased off a little and the sky had turned blue, so I took this as my cue to grab my board and head up the mountain to check out the conditions.
I started off my ride by taking the Josep Torrallardona run towards the intersection of Gall de Bosc and Os, where I continued down to the four-man chair lift at the base of El Tarter.
We were excited to wake up to more snowfall yesterday morning, and although this had stopped by afternoon there was still good coverage on the slopes thanks to a little extra help from the snow cannons.
There are still some areas on the pistes which are a little hard compact, but with such good visibility and relatively quiet slopes it’s been easy to see these and navigate around them.
More snow is forecast over the weekend and we are hopeful for another powder day, so keep an eye on our snow data and watch this space for an updated snow report on Saturday.
In the meantime, get up the mountain and take advantage of the blue skies, clear conditions and great atmosphere!
After the heavy snowfall we had on Saturday the slopes still have good snow coverage in most places, however there are some areas (such as the Gall de Bosc run down towards El Tarter) that are a little hard packed or bumpy - so take care or you may end up with a couple of bruises like me!The visibility on the mountain was irregular and relatively low due to the flat light and snowfall but improved on the lower parts of the mountain, especially when heading back to Soldeu via the Bosc Fosc run.For these sorts of conditions, goggles with lenses suitable for low-light are preferable, however Category 2 lenses tend to work well in variable conditions.Our team are up on the slopes most days and bring you first hand reports on the weather and conditions direct from the mountain.Here you'll also find weather forecasts and Soldeu webcams with live feeds of Soldeu and El Tarter.
