Arcteryx was born in Vancouver for a reason. Rain low means snow high. Elevation and Goretex are your friends. The fog can be tricky.

@Toadman, Jackson Hole closed again yesterday due to high winds and avalanche danger. Teton pass has been closed frequently this season.
Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name.

Jackson Home reopened today after being closed for several days following a power outage along with unsafe conditions from heavy snowfall.

@LaForet, No issues clearing security in the French sector. Sadly headed home.
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

@skiandgolfnut, I'm in Zermatt now and snow was forcast all day and it only snowed early this morning. It was supposed to resume this afternoon/evening but nothing yet. You could see clouds developing late in the day but it fizzled out. The conditions are good above 2000m but they could use a good storm. I'll be in Snowbird in three weeks and hope the faucet stays on there.

@Redwine, Nothing new as of yet. I'm just an American visitor so I'm no expert, but have been following the thread here. Today Cervinia was closed. Most of the Glacier was too. High winds up at Trockener Steg. The glacier closed completely by 11. Pistes are in need of a refresh at least but decent cover above 2200. Clouds are moving in. Snow supposedly coming in the next few hours. +4 in town.
Well, it's only polite to Register

@skiandgolfnut, My first day today beautiful weather. Great snow up top. Cervinia had great conditions too to bottom. I'd say 15-20 cmon the glacier. Not to fond of 40 degree weather in the village but up top is great.
After all it is free Go on u know u want to!

Rain at resort level in Verbier today. Snow above 1800m or so. Steady above 2000. Overall it had a Pacific Northwest feel to the day. Now on to Zermatt where it's raining.

I ski 2-3 weeks a year and it's very disappointing to finally plan to come to these mountains in Western Europe during a winter like this. You don't come here for 40 degree temps and rain in January anymore than you would go to Hawaii for 50 degree weather. It's part of the deal though in the mountains. I've had summit attempts thwarted by snow in June and August at mt rainier and Grand Teton and had to wait another year to go back. It's part of mountain weather. Still having a nice time in Verbier though. Hope things turn around for the rest of you as you go into February. The locals seem a bit down about it. Lots of anxiety about the holiday weeks coming up. Next time I'll come later in the season.
which other snowHeads love to answer.

Valle Blanche today with a guide. Beautiful up top, rocky below. My guide said 3 Russians were missing from yesterday, as they descended without a guide. Helicopter out all day searching. The ridge is still without a rope.
And they're a friendly bunch.

@telford_mike, Don't worry it will change. its been showing that out 7-10 days for a while now and it always goes away within 5-7 days except for the storm two weeks ago.
You know it makes sense.

@halfhand, I read that on the Chamonix app. Thanks. I have a guide reserved with Evolution2ski for Sunday and they have mentioned the poles and ropes are not up on the ridge. Thus they are only guiding groups of 1-2. I'll probably cancel and just go to the Grand Montets. Dissapointing coming from USA, I'll book March next time. Europe is way too dry for early season plans and I regret making them. Perhaps the itineraries at Verbier will compensate somewhat.

@Brothergrimm, I'm locked in the first week of feb. Unless a miracle happens I'll ski on a thin layer of 2 week old snow over a moderate layer of 2 1/2 month old snow.... not exactly Utah powder but I'll make the best of it. I identify with the anxiety I purchased airfare mid November and have watched the weather with horror ever since. Seems to be the new norm for Europe.

@jimmybog, @esaw1, Same here. Coming from the States in 10 days and have been obsessed with first not enough snow, now warm temps and if it snows can I get from Geneva to Chamonix on the 28th. Then will he lifts be closed if there is a storm? I need to relax. It'll be great no matter.

@Northernhills, I've done it twice and think it's worth doing if you don't set expectations too high. Terrain is often limited before 10:00 as alpine lifts seem to open later. I waited 1 1/2 hours last year after a big snowfall and it was ok. Worth doing once for the experience.

@Posidrive, I can't disagree. Resorts like Vail are sometimes poor attempts to replicate European villages. However, others such as Telluride, Park City, and Jackson have their own unique mix of cowboy, Native American and skiing culture that while not Austrian, is kind of cool.

Zermatt lifts were closed today and a few days ago due to high winds not lack of snow. I'm sure off piste is a no go but reports are good above 2000 meters.

What would be the best transport from chamonix to verbier. I have a car rental in Geneva for a chamonix/verbier/zermatt trip. I'd rather not drive given that zermatt is car free but I get different answers to this question. The hotel in chamonix suggested private transport at 200 euros. I understand the train journey is 3 hours and includes a bus ride. Any input would be helpful.

@Redwine, true the US has snow issues but I've never in 35 years of skiing seen an 8-10 drought stateside. Perhaps 14-15 in Tahoe. If I could cancel and go out west to Jackson or SLC I would, but I can't and am going in Late February anyway. I was sure January would turn around but the latest forecast looks Grimm until very late in the month.
