@Mike Pow, indeed, but if/when I go again tbh I would skip Gudauri altogether for the reasons explained in my TR plus complex transit to other areas, and visit one of the other Georgian resorts instead then Mestia/Tetnuldi again which are amazing. I understand though that you were a lot luckier with the snow in Gudauri than us. And yes Tbilisi is well worth a couple of days.

@Mike Pow, +1, though instead of [url=http://snowheads.com/ski-forum/viewtopic.php?p=3008205]Gudauri I would recommend [url=http://snowheads.com/ski-forum/viewtopic.php?p=3008246]Mestia and nearby [url=http://snowheads.com/ski-forum/viewtopic.php?p=3008260]Tetnuldi which have a lot more to offer both on and off slope.

Great report. I visited Japan for 2 weeks at the start of February 2015 and experienced a similar mix of conditions. Having since read many similar reports I'm increasingly beginning to wonder if receiving non stop JaPow for a typical 1 week or fortnight visit is lucky rather than to be expected.

For SW Hokkaido there are three different weather areas - Niseko Resort Area; Rusutsu; Otaru/Sapporo Area. Depending on wind direction all three or just one will get hit by a storm. Which wind direction favours which areas?
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

Gatwick. 30 mins on the choo choo from my front door. Sh*t load of flights to everywhere. Train station right next to the airport. If flying from the south terminal e.g. BA then check in desks are adjacent to the station. Invariably it's busy but the new owners have done a great job of improving the capacity of security. Again in the South Terminal, it's possible to bypass the duty free walk through by following the signs to the lounges instead (thank you @GlasgowCyclops for that tip). Free newspapers.

@nozawaonsen, great thanks. Looks like a decent accumulation then for Valais, particularly towards the Swiss/Italian border. GFS/WRF vs ECMWF...let battle commence!

Why is there such disparity between current GFS and other forecasts for some resorts? e.g. Zermatt http://www.snow-forecast.com/resorts/Zermatt/6day/mid 1m+ https://www.zermatt.ch/en/Weather-forecast nothing These haven't changed. GFS is massively sticking its neck out predicting heavy snow starting tonight. Zermatt website and bergfex/wepowder/yr are forecasting a dribble at best. What is WRF saying? I am getting close to decision making time for venue for the weekend - needs to be a Swiss resort.
Then you'll get to see more forums.

I'm driving up to Cervinia on Thursday night and nervously eying the weather forecast. Looks like nonstop snow. There seems to be a lot of disagreement between GFS and ECMWF based or local forecasts. e.g. check snow forecast (dump) vs bergfex (dribble) www.snow-forecast.com/resorts/Cervinia/6day/mid https://www.bergfex.com/breuil-cervinia/wetter/prognose

The new snow is ankle deep. Lifts are all open. Piste snow conditons are fair. The off-piste has variable snow conditions.

AAC+3. Doesn't cover the mundane insurance stuff like refunds for delayed luggage so buy an additional bog standard policy for that. AAC membership also gives you a discount on some accommodations e.g. the DAV Haus in Obertauern.

Is it worth planning a long weekend to Abetone and/or Cimone if steeper slopes and off piste are required? They've got a great forecast for the next few days.

They opened Kapall later on in the day, about 14:30, something like that. Bergrettung were called out to an avalanche about quarter to 5, a few Dutchies triggered a slide that went down a couple of variants (more info on the Bergrettung facebook page). Link? Skier's right of Kapall looked amazing today when it cleared up. Gutted I had just transferred to Galzig and didn't have time to go back :(

Very little open again today. All inter resort links closed. They opened some of the higher lifts but have now closed them again presumably due to increasing wind. Morning was great but now it's getting warmer and snow on the very few open lower runs is turning to tracked out heavy sh*t. Hope for a refresh tonight.

With the Steissbachtal closed, is it possible to get from Kapall/Gampen to Galzig without going to resort level? Is the very bottom of piste 28 open to enable me to get to the bottom of the Zammermoosbahn lift? Yes

@FIRSTOFTHEGIANTS, do you mean 06Z? Yes it's looking very tasty for the north and west. Hope there are a few moments of calm amidst the maelstrom for those involved to enjoy whatever is delivered.

Zürich then stress free rail transfer to a multitude of Swiss or west Austrian resorts. So much more civilised than the weekly cattle run to the French ski factories.

GFS 06Z is showing a decent amount of snow Tuesday-Wednesday in the Arlberg, more than other forecasts. Is GFS not sufficiently high resolution to reduce predicted snowfall amounts for the northern alps from weather systems approaching from the south? http://www.wetterzentrale.de/en/show_diagrams.php?geoid=2547&model=gfs&var=93&run=06&lid=OP&bw=

@nozawaonsen, any more thoughts on the forecast further out? There seems to be discrepancy between ECMWF and GFS, with the former being a good boy and favouring further Atlantic weather systems coming in from the W/NW, or have I interpreted that completely wrong?

@boarder2020, there are some very nice runs down to the revelation gondola. The far left from the top had some of my favourite runs in the trees and staying over there takes you down to revelation eventually, instead of bailing out right earlier to stoke chair. The uplift is fast and it's nice to warm up again inside the gondola if it's cold and dumping.

Revelstoke is amazing...fast uplift, huuuuge vertical, amazing views from the top, loads of snow and fab off piste both above and below the treeline. Very remote which is great once you're there. I would love to go back.

Took me three days to get into St Anton once. Inghams were a bit slow with information, but arranged very nice hotel accommodation in Feldkirch. No complaints. Can you recall if the trains were running ok through St Anton?
