James analysing the snowpack near Les Contamines.

James Thacker and I have been out today in the Les Contamines area skiing on and off piste and analysing the snowpack. The ski conditions are still good around the resort. The local issued forecast is a moderate hazard. From our observations the snowpack is generally well bonded. However, we did see some spontaneous point release avalanches on northerly aspects.
