Bring on the summer...

So the winter has finally come to an end after an unseasonably cold end to the season.
There were a few really good dumps of snow at the end of April and start of May which resulted in some fantastic end of season skiing on extremely quiet slopes.
The snow has mostly receded and the resort is starting to look green and summery once again as you can see from the Tignes le Lac webcam.
