This winter is really not letting go! It briefly looked like spring had got its foot in the door there, but no, winter bursts back into the room with its fist in the air shouting "and another thing..."
Even though the sun was splitting the sky on Sunday at Le Tour, the slight north wind and cool air temperatures were stopping the off-piste snow from transforming into lovely spring corn snow. Skiing around the snowpark, the groomed snow was a perfect (for me) combination of slightly too soft for full speed into the jumps but slightly too firm on the landings to risk trying anything that might result in crashing. Still, the park crew have been really busy creating new features and there's all manner of snow and man made modules and kickers to play about on. Elsewhere on the hill, the pistes were skiing nicely and the firmness was just enough to stop them getting too bumpy or slushy where they'd been groomed.
