Definitions

Spring*: Often occurs during thaw. Soft snow, trails are icy at some places. May see a few meters of trails with no snow.

Minimal*: Occurs at beginning of season or after thaw. Trails are icy in some places and less deep than usual. Not much snow in general, but overall still enjoyable.

*Spring and minimal: When you buy a daily pass in these conditions, we will give you a free entry for a future visit since we consider these conditions to be below our standards.

Acceptable: Enough snow. Tracks are visible on all the trails. Possibility of icy tracks in some places.

Good: Enough snow. Nice tracks on the majority of the trails.

Very good: More than enough snow. Nice tracks on all the trails.

Excellent: Abundant snow. Nice dense tracks on all the trails. Ideal weather for skiing.

Fairy tale: Excellent conditions AND a majestic scenery in the trees. Ideal weather for skiing.
