Fresh snow for Sauze

After over 24 hrs of snow just about everyone in the village was eager to get on the first lift this morning. It’s the biggest snow fall we’ve had since the season began with around 50cm of snow in places.

A combination of high wind, poor visibility and avalanche risk restricted the skiing to just Sauze but at last the off piste through the trees was back on the agenda.

The sun did try and breakthrough in the afternoon but despite this it’s snowed all day. It has currently stopped but the village is still wrapped in a blanket of cloud. This is due to break up tomorrow lunch time and then hopefully we’ll have sun for the rest of week with the temperature remaining low.

It’s hard to groom the slopes when it snowing so the pistes today were a combination of almost off piste conditions and mounds of fresh snow. In some areas the snow on the pistes was just below the knee. If no more snow falls this evening it’ll give the cat drivers the opportunity to get the slopes nicely prepared overnight so tomorrow should be a great day.

It’s not as if we were desperate for snow but this is certainly very welcome!

What our customers say

Great service from James prior to arriving. Really went above and beyond. The rental shop was ideally situated at the bottom of the lift. Can't wait to return!

S. Warhurst

We are a family of 6 and James and Sinead at Sauzeonline.com were brilliant in organising skis, lessons and restaurants. Really helpful and friendly - a pleasure to deal with. We plan to come back next year using Sauzeonline for everything.

D. Bonfield

The transfers we booked were professional and hassle free notwithstanding our late arrival. For the return we were greeted on time with great service. The ski hire was also of excellent quality.

A. McCormick

Easy to use website and good prices. James was very helpful on the phone. Ski hire shop provided good and rapid service

G. Humphries

Sauzeonline provide great value ski and snowboard hire from a selection of shops in good locations throughout the town – so we were able to find shops suitable for all our group (not all of whom were staying in the same place). James was also incredibly helpful in resolving an issue one of our group had with his snowboard hire [and arranged a full refund]. We would definitely recommend Sauzeonline both in terms of excellent value and service.
