With regards to the buses in Sauze, you could buy a weekly ticket for around 8 euros last year making it easier. Doesn't make it right though.
Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name.

Reports of multiple trees falling on lift cables and electrical pylons on the Jouvecaux lift in Sauze. More concerning reports of an apartment block in Sestriere damaged by avalanche. If true, hope all OK ☹️ https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=10159766392550114&id=199649850113
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

The Olympic is very wide so plenty of room to turn. It is steepish but not scarily so and is a pretty constant gradient. Worth a go if the snow is good and the sun out.

@sergeantslow, Good to hear. Three weeks and counting. Any idea on the local forecast for the weekend? Is Sauze village going to be snowed in or drowned?

Personal favourites: Olympic black over the top in Sansicario is my favourite, good long challenging run (more red than black) followed by run through the trees to the base station. chairs in Sansicario are quite fast, though you do need a longish drag back to the top. The blue run (road?) From the far right of Sestriere to Pragelato (about half way down facing right from the top of Sestriere) - not at all challenging, but long, flattering and quite picturesque. In good conditions the home runs from from Sportinia and top of the Clotes lift are fun, but best earlier in the day as very busy later. Have a great time, out there again in 3 weeks
After all it is free Go on u know u want to!

Both Sestriere and Sansicario easy to get to from the top, but a steepish run back from the top of Sauze, so allow yourself time to get home. If you are happy to start with one or two slopes to start with, get up to the bowl at the top of Sportinia where the are good, high blues and easy reds to enjoy and let us know how you get on. Out there in 3 weeks, can't wait! Looks as though there will be plenty of weather there this weekend so take care!
Then you'll get to see more forums.

Oops :oops: I meant over graded (I blame auto correct) Meaning that many reds are closer to blues, and blacks closer to reds.....

Didn't stay in the Derby, but couple of tips Where comfy footwear on arrival, there is a 10-15 minute uphill walk from the drop off ( your cases are taken up) The ski bus is not free-range buy a weekly ticket if needed (the Clotes lift is close, but if you need the Sportinia lift it is a fair walk carrying skis) Agree with the night life suggestions. Try karaoski at the miravellina great fun after a few drinks. Don't be scared to try runs - they tend to be overgrazed. Depending on your ability don't miss the Olympic black in Sansicario from the top of Sauze. More a red and great fun. Watch the lift closure times it takes longer than you think to get back from the top of Sauze as one of our party found out last year meaning a bus from Sestriere to Oulx in the valley and back up again! Enjoy!

Agree with the above suggestions, they all help. Mine was only cured with an injection into the sole of the foot, so painful I wouldn't wish it on anyone. The plus side is that if you are a skier there's is little effect whilst you are locked into a boot as the heel should not be moving. I managed 2 weeks with no issues even when hobbling around whilst not skiing.
Otherwise you'll just go on seeing the one name:

Fwiw Snowtrax is my local slope and is by far the closest I have tried to real snow (though still nothing like it) In addition to the comments above, I think they still do a ski all night (well from 6-10) a basket meal and equipment hire for under £25, but do check first. My daughter hires equipment when she goes and finds the boots fine.

Full day skiing from Sauze today, blue skies warm and pretty good snow Clotes lift closed so all access from Sportinia, links to Sestriere and Sansicario open once top lift dug out! All 3 resorts in good nick. Good all round obviously best higher and definitely softening during the day. Sat outside in shorts and t shirt for 5 o'clock beers. Great late season conditions

Out to Sauze for a late escape next week. Anyone on the ground at the moment who can give a quick update? Thanks in advance!
Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name.

@ian66, apparently still not enough snow for Jerusalem. :evil: Hope you have better luck. On the plus side most things open if a little thin in places of high traffic or no snow making. Getting a little icy on lower runs though (below around 1600 m)
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

Basically no. Saw 2 cannons running on a low narrow access piste in Meribel late afternoon. Didn't experience any newly made snow that I noticed

Aborted landing at Chambery with Crystal diverted to Lyon, sat on tarmac for 2.5 hours before returning to Chambery. 3.5 hour transfer to St Martin due to snow and sitting stationery for an hour outside Moutier due to an accident on the Val Thorens Road. Now tucked up in the very nice Alpe hotel in an upgraded room so all is good!

Not medically trained but... I can't tell you it will be fine, however I skied a week in Schladming with Plantar fascitis in ex-hire boots with no problem at all. Walking too and from the lifts in normal shoes was another question :skele: :skele: I think it was because the up and down motion of the ankle is stopped because you are locked in place - from my experience it is this motion that causes the pain. I think one of the treatments is a boot overnight that is like a ski boot. I tried it in my boots at home before leaving and was reassured enough not to worry about it. Can you try that? Hope it works out

Not sure on the transfer time but I would agree Valloire is a good option. A real village and good intermediate slopes
