Morzine is looking a lot different this morning, following heavy snowfall throughout the day and night. At around midday yesterday, rain turned to snow with the freezing level dropping all the way down to around 800m
High winds meant that a lot of the higher lifts on the Super Morzine/Avoriaz side were closed for the day. However, a lot of the lifts on the Pleney side were still open and it was well worth braving the wind and poor visibility to enjoy the excellent snow. In town approximately 10 to 20cm of snow have settled, although the freezing level was just above town for large parts of the day, meaning that heading just slightly higher will yield excellent snow cover.
Reports are suggesting that up to 70cm have fallen on the higher slopes, so that is where the best of the snow will be found. Heavy snow is forecast for most of the day today with more expected over the next few days, meaning that visibility on the higher slopes will not be ideal, and staying in the trees is probably the best option for now.
The avalanche risk is currently at 4/5, as you would expect, so stay safe and enjoy the snow!
