I recently bought a pair and they are an awesome piste ski.

Avoriaz is way more than 30 mins from Cluses. Morzine is about 40 mins. Les Carroz d'Araches would get my vote.
Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name.

In Morgins there is a short little double drag called Teleski Du Culet From memory the Ecotis drag lift beside the Culet isn't great either - it has a nasty dog leg left on it.

I stayed at the Hotel Melia a couple of years ago and would recommend it. About 100 yards from the gondola station, with a lovely pool/spa with huge picture windows overlooking the moutain and a great breakfast too.
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

A couple of laps of run 92 first thing in the morning is a superb way to start the day.

Piste conditions today were fantastic. Snow blowers on full blast again tonight. Great evening show on Serfaus last night too. Race chargers are the way to go in these conditions @Guernseyfreerider!
And post your own questions...

I agree with above. Lots open but it's all a bit icy at present. Little bits of off-post up Manser are good and the snow blowers were on last night topping up. It can be a bit of a lottery on the piste though. Decent snow to sheet ice within a short space. Lovely (and expensive) resort though.

if you are on your own go in the Lo Bistro bar opposite the hotel about 6pm each night.. plenty in there who may ski with you, plus free bar snacks !! Yorkshire lad's on the ball here. Lo Bistro is the best place in town for an aprez Aperol Spritz (or Bambardino if you dare!).

@kingwhite, I have been keeping an eye on the webcams and they have had the cannons on pretty much every night, switching them off at around 8.00 am in the morning. I am sure that you will have a blast - there's plenty of on piste skiing to be had.

A poor start to the season. There is no sign of snow on the hills at present but there is some forecast for next week. Not enough to open the resorts but we're hopeful.

You've got to feel sorry for Chamrousse - they have contracts with Tour Operators and have to open some skiing from this weekend. They can't even run the snow canons, it is too warm:- https://www.chamrousse.com/webcams.html You can see that at 2250 meters they've at least run a piste basher up and down the bit of snow that is present. They may be able to open a piste on the north side of this hill. Crikey - that doesn't look great ! We were there before Christmas in 2014 and it was a lot better then, and that was a very slow start to the year...... round here this year is the worst (currently) of the last 3 years. There are hotels in affected ski resorts that have ZERO (0) bookings for the Christmas week now. Debate about getting the VTTs out for hire at Christmas, the Swiss have already taken action, here is a list of stations opening for MTBing:- http://www.26in.fr/news/live/les-stations-qui-ouvrent-pour-les-vacanc.html Meteo France "sees no new snow before Christmas for the Northern French Alps". Some more far sighted people are saying no snow before January at the earliest, others, more optimistic, are hoping for "something" on the 28th. On a positive note I'm hearing good things about Bonneval and Val Cenis in the Haute-Maurienne: http://www.haute-maurienne-vanoise.com/webcams/!/webcam/1 Will Lacs Robert be open ? It's north facing isn't it ?

Christmas week in Aple d'Huez anyone ? Leaving from Edinburgh based on two adults & 2 children :- Based in Quartier des Bergers Apartments, self catering, in a studio (so it will be pretty small). Departing on the 24th, returning on the 31st. However the price including flights & transfers is an incredible £ 155 per person (reduced from 714 per person) ! £ 620 for a family of four. You can upgrade to B&B for £ 232 pp or half board for £ 337 pp too. Aple d'Huex is open for skiing :- Open trails 29/135 Open lifts 25/70 Bargain.

Sorry I disagree. And quite strongly. It's simply misleading. EC Monthly Control has about a 40% accuracy between 10-20 days.' So, at 40% accuracy, it would be fair to say that the 10-20 day prediction is more likely not to happen than to happen.........

There are loads of easy/intermediate runs in the bowl at the top of the gondola. More interesting red runs further up the mountain - I liked the Laguna area a lot. The only black run that I could think of is from the big radar dish in the main bowl. It's short and has a mogul run beside it. It's a big area and even if they only have half of the pistes open, there will be plenty to fill a weekend. Enjoy!

Hi Emma The 2nd week we are going to Avoriaz Snow isn't always great down to Morzine at beginning and end of season. I was skiing on grass at the end of March so Avoriaz may be better at Easter or Christmas. I have been to Avoriaz on my own but not with the family and it's certainly on the radar for a visit with them. Very family friendly as is traffic free (apart from horse drawn sleds/ski-doo's) and every apartment is ski in-ski out. They have a great Village des Enfants right in the centre of the resort and an excellent swimming complex too.
Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name.

@WellingtonBoot, The pistes that are going to be open are listed on the official website :- https://www.serfaus-fiss-ladis.at/en/winter/season-start The total number of pistes was taken from the piste map, which can be downloaded from the official website :- https://www.serfaus-fiss-ladis.at/en/winter/winterpanorama There is also a very useful interactive piste map on this page. When the resort opens on Thursday it will be interesting to see how much of the interactive map lights up green. There are 80% of the pistes covered by snow making with 1250 snow cannons according to the skiresort.info website :- http://www.skiresort.info/ski-resort/serfaus-fiss-ladis/slope-offering/ "80 % of the slopes have snow-making capabilities" I am not concerned at the least about going there early season. The snow cannons will be working overtime (when suitable) for the next few weeks and if there isn't a big dump there WILL be lots of skiing available. It could be alot worse - have a look at the Avoriaz webcam, where it's warmer too. The resort is opening on the 8th December with a decent amount of pistes open. I am very happy with that. It is only going to get better.

We have children of 4 & 7. Ski2 in Champoluc (Italy) are excellent. Not too cheap but they are very good. Great ski school for the young ones. I could not fault Ski2 at all. I could also recommend La Norma (France) which is very family friendly. They have a superb nursery slope. I can't comment on ski schools as we had private lessons there. It isn't an expensive resort and none of the accommodation is far from the foot of the piste. You would have to book everything yourself as I don't think that any TO's go there. We are going to Serfaus (Austria) at New Year and it seems to be the most family orientated resort in the country.

Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis is opening on Thursday (8th December) with 33/38 lifts open (86.8%) and 44/163 pistes open (27%) along with 18 restaurants and various parks/freestyle/funslope/racecourse. You will be able to ski down to the village in both Serfaus and Fiss. With 185 km of pistes that equates to 50km of pistes open from day 1. Not bad by my reckoning. The cannons have been working all weekend (and again today), hopefully by the time that we are there after Christmas most of the resort will have opened. :D

I was about to suggest Tignes. Very convenient for GVA and plenty of intermediate skiing. Not pretty though. Les Carroz might fit the bill. This. 1 hour from Geneva, access to the whole of the Grand Massif and plenty blue & red pistes.

Not too good I would imagine. The Lecht never opened the lifts and Cairngorm isn't open today (Sunday) due to the rise in temperature I believe.

I am surprised to see that no-one has mentioned that Cairngorm is open today-Sunday. No tows open, funicular for skiers uplift only, no equipment hire, 5 pistes open back to the base station, reduced ticket price and limited availability (250).
