The snow conditions on the Tignes glacier
Throughout the summer there are often fresh snowfalls on the mountain, which helps to keep good snow levels. Typically the snow starts off hard in the mornings, then becomes softer as the sun takes effect. By mid to late morning the snow conditions are is at their peak, soften towards the afternoon but remaining in reasonable shape. The snow continues to soften under the sun, but remains firm enough to ski until the afternoon when it becomes quite 'sugary'. The altitude, and the glacier generally help to keep temperatures low enough.
