@offpisteskiing, I do understand this, though it's a little frustrating when 3V are heavily promoting their 'perfect pistes' right now. Of course I selfishly want to ski my favourite run in the Alps!
Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name.

Conditions are very good on piste. Now I just wish they would open Jerusalem, which they say is closed due to lack of snow!

Not sure about Innsbruck, Chambery, Salzburg or the charters. I can find out if anyone wants to know. Thanks, would be interested re charters from Chambery. Though I think it will only be flights out of Heathrow that are affected?

When I was looking to see if I was likely to be disrupted over Christmas/New Year I found this. Lists routes "thought" to be mixed fleet. http://www.independent.co.uk/travel/news-and-advice/british-airways-strikes-which-what-christmas-new-year-flights-travel-plans-disrupted-affected-a7476416.html Thanks for this. Looks likely no disruption for European ski destination flights.

@HumptyDumpty, major traffic problems with the busses, stay to the lift system Expected as much. Hope they manage to keep on top of the road clearing and delays not too horrendous.

Apparently BA won't announce routes affected until Monday. Anyone happen to know if a BA flight chartered by Crystalski from Dublin to Chambery is likely to be crewed by Mixed Fleet? Hope not :shock:

@chrisb, Since Zermatt is in Switzerland you will need to use Swiss Francs. Some mountain restaurants in Zermatt accept Euro notes, but will give you change in Swiss Francs. Credit card can be your best option. Or just get lunch on the cheaper friendlier Cervinia side :D

First time seeing frost on the ground at the Golf Course in Tasch, Zermatt. (Via webcam, yes I have been checking daily.) Getting the ground nice and cold ready for those flakes and hopefully dump this weekend :D

Go to Les Gets and get your kids skiing lessons :-P Seriously, its very family friendly with lots of dedicated kids areas. You can access Avoriaz where the snowboarders live easily from Les Gets. Avoriaz doesn't strike me as particularly family friendly - lots of young raucous party animals on the slopes and out at night.
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

@TheManOnTheBus, skied Champoluc for a few days when I was a beginner intermediate. Plenty to do, varied terrain keeps it interesting and it seems larger than it actually is! Possible to ski to Alagna and Gressoney Village is small and quiet but with nice après vibe among very pleasant Italians. Great food on and off the mountain!

@MickC, got to reccomend Cervinia. Snow sure with the glacier up top which provides skiing even in the summer. Lovely range of reds and varied terrain. Ski over to Zermatt on the same lift pass, but maybe best buy your lunch on the cheaper Italian side. Cervinia's a low-key village with great food, friendly (in a low-key way) locals, and variety of accomodation. Can't wait to ski there in early December. Hope you have a great ski wherever you choose.

@Taybegin, private lessons (or your own small group) lessons should be fine with ESF, but their large group lessons are not really worth it. My first experience skiing was in a large (18 people) group ESF lesson in Morzine. We learnt a few things, but there was simply no way the instructor could monitor us all. Yes it was fun being on skis for the first time but I wish now I'd gone with a smaller private lesson for our group of four. Another option would be to try LGS, another ski school in Les Gets - no great difference in instruction, but they are English speaking which may ease your learning curve a little. Re ski hire, all of the hire places in Les Gets are within a few minutes walk of ski school meeting point. Enjoy your trip, Les Gets is wonderful!

@ceedeebee, re going off the edge probably made sense for you not to be 'trapped' between the wall on your right and the piste. Did that run many times last year, when there was nothing like the amount of snow now. From your vid it does look like quite a vertical build-up of snow on the wall to your right. Glad it was only a mini-Avalanche and that you got out ok :sH:

@timlongs If you consider my genuine question to be a "silly comment" I can only hope you aren't representative of all Snowheads. Just looking for information here and don't quite understand the aggressive response. Oh, and you may trust the pisteurs. I'd rather trust myself and my informed judgement. Will go and look elsewhere for said information however.

@shep, thanks for the link which mentions plenty of on-piste avalanches. I certainly will make my own mind up and ski as safely as possible. @Nadenoodlee, nah, don't buy it, if you want to be extra careful (for example skiing with children) must be something you can do in terms of types of pistes to avoid, strategies to employ and so on.

@shep, I was asking for some logical precautions one could take E.g. Stay away from pistes underneath overhanging cornices etc. I find your claim that there are no precautions one can take to be dubious. Anyone else with any (informed) opinions?
You know it makes sense.

@shep, while it may have stopped at the edge of the piste, that's a little close for comfort. Have skied this run many times and am due to again next week. Would be interested to read any advice on how to take precautions while skiing on-piste when the avi risk is 4/5.

I am going to La Clusaz this weekend, I see the Freeride World Tour event has been cancelled. Not sure is it the high avalanche risk or the base not being enough to cover all the rocks @Peter Ross, heading to La Clusaz later this weekend (also from Dublin) and interested to see conditions there especially as it's due to warm up next week.

Any suggestions for a good general webcam app? Currently I'm using Ski Webcams which doesn't always have live feed for all resorts. Yes, I know I can go to an individual resorts site and view webcams from there, but not always efficien on a mobile device, plus I like to see what's happening in neighbouring resorts. :sH:

Think the app looks excellent, going by the free version. Look forward to the Portes du Soleil map. Be interested to test its offline capacity (if any) on the slopes.

@Pamski, please give a hint about the loggers path! We have found ourselves avoiding the back bowl at busy times, the worst is the spaghetti junction approaching the lift queues - quite dangerous.

Excited to be heading out to Les Gets for a long weekend this Thursday. Everything looking good out there? Me too! Looking at the webcams everything looks okay, if a little thin/slushy on lower slopes. It's supposed to be cooler from Wed night which should help things. Anyone know the operational status of cannons in les Gets - are they still going to be in action for these late-season weeks?

Only Marred by a transfer company that claim to be fast and from Morzine were so late for two sets of my friends that 5 of them had to buy new airline tickets. When I say late, 2 hours late to pick them up. Would that be the same 'speedy' company who were over an hour late for us on one of the snowy Saturday's in late December? I could understand them being late but not blatantly lying every time we rang the office e.g. "Your transfers just left Morzine" and us still standing outside our accomodation in Les Gets waiting 50 mins later. Pity, as we've found them to be good before, and have given them another chance by booking them for an upcoming weekend break. Will post here if we get the same treatment... :x

@foxtrotzulu, have stayed at Les Carroz and really liked the skiing. Is it possible to commute up to Flaine, if the lower slopes of Les Carroz are in poor condition. Thanks! @pam w, thanks for those tips. Agreed on lack of old towns built high up - villages work fine with us too. Will look up your suggestions. :)

We have mid-March flights booked to Geneva so looking for recommends for a high altitude resort, (1500 or higher) within 1.5 hours drive. Looking for real town atmosphere so want to avoid purpose-built resorts like Flaine or Avoriaz. Also want to avoid the Swiss Franc at all costs so probably looking at France. We like intermediate cruisers, no need for off piste. Look forward to any suggestions!

We have Geneva flights booked for 12-18 March and would like to stay in Les Gets, but wondering how snow is usually around that time. Spring snow? Slushy? Worn off the pistes? Could change to the last week of Feb but I believe Paris schools have mid-term then. So that could mean long queues and busy pistes? Having spent this Christmas shedding tears on the green slopes of Les Gets, and bussing it to hour-long queues in Avoriaz, I just want to get some decent skiing in!
