12th December 2018 Snow Report.
We went to check out the snow conditions in the beautiful ski resort of Courchevel in the French Alps.
The snow coverage is very good on the slopes, freshly groomed runs and cold temperatures. In the lower part of the resort, snow making is on, so it’s going to be soon well covered with snow all the way down to 1300mt. which is the village of Le Praz.
As the winter hasn’t really kicked off just yet, although it’s mid-December, it’s a great opportunity to go and explore the mountains in different ways.
..such as mountain walks. This particular walk shown in the photographs, is in the Aosta valley of Italy and it can be done in an afternoon. You could ski in Cervinia and Zermatt in the morning, then go for this walk afterwards.
The Valtournenche, valley of Cervinia, offers many different walks to do, from short and easy to longer and more challenging ones.
The Cervino Matterhorn mountain peak is in sight most of the time as you walk, and it’s always a stunning view.
Walk towards the Mont Tantané, another 2700 metre mountain peak where you will get an outstanding landscape view of the valley below and of the surrounding alps of the Aosta valley.
There are many good view points to have a sit down and a bite to eat and also picnic areas with wooden made benches and tables as in the photo here below.
As the sun’s setting over the Mont Tantané, I hope you enjoyed reading this post and the photographs, thank you for passing by, and remember to #GetOutMore as it’s
There’s a time in the day that is known to the the photographers as the “Blue Hour”. It’s basically the lenght of time in between the sunset and moonrise. One of the problems you might encounter in the mountains waiting for the blue hour, is that it gets very cold and you can freeze as that it’s one of the coldest moment of the day. However, if taking stunning pictures is what you like doing, the blue hour is the best time to achieve that result.
