Winter has returned with a vengeance. 20cm of fresh snow fell overnight, the glacier is closed by the 100km winds and Tignes is cut off from civilisation. Not many lifts are running, but as usual the Funival is taking the hardier skiers to the top of Bellevarde.
There was a pause in the blizzard when this picture was taken. Otherwise we wouldn’t have got it, since our photographer doesn’t go out in bad weather. But now (lunchtime) it’s snowing and blowing hard again.
