I am currently in La Mongie skiing, and it is certainly a beautiful resort. However, the daily report I receive states that "La Mongie is reporting powder." I can be 100% sure that this is untrue. We have been here since 3rd January, today is the 8th January and we have had no snow during this time, only azure blue skies and sun. The cannons are working hard during the night, but more snow is needed urgently and the forecast is showing no snow this week.

The report we're receiving is "Packed Powder" which does appear to be used to cover quite a range of conditions...

It's not really what most of us understand as "powder", however, so we've (today) updated our Snow Mails so that they'll no longer treat "packed powder" as, er, powder.

Regarding the forecast; it does look set to cool significantly in 2-3 days time with a good chance of snow in the Northern Alps at least. Not clear how far to the South the cold will spread at the moment though.
