 Big snowfalls over Christmas have left great piste conditions in the Val d'Anniviers and some good off piste - but it's still pretty thin and rocky! Careful skiing needed, and careful route choice. Lots of the regular descents are just too rocky to ski safely, and the recently much talked about weak snowpack is very unstable, with lots of slab avalanches on all aspects.
