Rumours were spreading that Verbier was going to open this weekend, although I was dubious that there would be enough snow. Luckily, I was completely wrong!

SUCH a good feeling after a long summer.

The views were beautiful whenever the weather cleared.

Quite a clear snow line above Verbier!

Back to rain tomorrow, but there's a good base forming at mid altitudes and once the high winds stop, things will be looking really good between 2000 and 3000 metres. As it is, the best skiing is probably 2200m to 2800m, which leaves plenty to go at over the coming weeks. As ever in November, the weather is pretty unpredictable but resorts are gradually opening up (although nearly all are weekends only for the next few weeks) and there is the odd good day coming up so get out and make the most of it.
