Just a thought. On slopes that are hard, using ski crampons can help a lot, especially on traverses.
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

@ronanh, no it's the decent down to mer de glacé and back to Chamonix. I have no idea what the conditions are like around arolla. There are teams on the HLR at the moment who are completing it. The pghm are the rescue service in the mountains in France. Things seem quite stable at the moment apart from wet snow purges in the afternoon at lower altitudes some large. It looks like most teams use the col du passion rather than the chardonnet. Skied at GM Friday. Good fun in places. F big lumps with some chalky snow.
which other snowHeads love to answer.

Most modern skis respond to how far you tip them over. The more you tip the tighter the turn. To a much lesser extent the amount of pressure also impacts the turn radius. Managing pressure is a skill but if the skis are very tight radius you might be stuck. Maybe try more even distribution of weight and varing the angle.

Someone plus la chamoniarde (guides office) posted on FB that the Pas de Chèvre was impassable where it exits onto the glacier and the Pghm have had to Heli parties off two days running. The exit couloir is loose mud and rocks.

Aosta valley is a fantastic place for cross country skiing and also alpine skiing. It has many different venues for both. To enjoy the huge variety you would need to have your own car.

I've done the train. Very easy. We left on a day after 6 foot of snow, the weekend of the galtur avalanche and got an apology for the train being 10 mins late. My friends driving had an epic.

"O" is the col you will most likely be heading over to the trient. "X" is the lavencher bowl. It's the other end of the resort. Some teams now head over the col du passon to avoid the steep decent from the Chardonet. There's loads of time for things to settle. It's been a warm afternoon which should help.

@mtnski, welcome, great first post. If you stick around you'll find that snowheads tend to be serial rule obeyers. Don't let that put you off. You might try some of the Chamonix Facebook groups but be discrete. Good luck.

Don't know about hips but I carried a shoulder bursitis for a long time. I had two painful cortisone injections and had an instant recovery. The dr doing the injection a GP said it would work well or not at all. I think they sometimes do the injections with the aid of a scanner these days. Good luck.

@marc.pizzi, the Dolomites are lovely, with plenty of nice villages and scenery, however it can be a little low for guaranteed Jan skiing. Further west the Aosta valley has lots of high skiing and more reliable snow. If you were based in Aosta town nice but definitely not a village you could ski Pila and also many other resorts if you had transport, incl Cervinia which gives an option to ski in Zermatt. What level do you ski it would make a difference. Also look at Courmayeur, a nice town with reliable snow, no need for a car, but with limited skiing not the best if you want big mileage.
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

I buy a large pack of aaa's (not lithium) at the start of the season. Switch it on when I put it on even if I've got an hours drive to the slopes. Only switch it off when I'm back at the car. Swap them out at 50%. Better safe than sorry. PS many/most transceivers can not accurately read the % remaining in a lithium battery.

I was Nordic skiing up the Val Grisenche today and saw the rescue helicopter flying in, also the ambulance go passed. At the local tiny ski resort 4/5 was posted. There was a newly posted warning at the side of the road advising drivers of the high risk today, to cars! I generally refrain from commenting until all the facts are known, but I observed several of my personal red flags up there today, spontaneous avalanches, lots of sun balls rolling down the slopes, and large lumps of snow falling from the trees.
And they're a friendly bunch.

@QRZBuddha, has it right. It's the Italian Val ferret looking towards Courmayeur on the left and Mont Blanc on the right. The disputed border is over Mont Blanc. Italian maps show the border running over the main summit, french maps show it running over Mont Blanc de Courmayeur.
