they ve been getting very excited on netweather forum all week about it.....no major forecasters have been as forthcoming,........probably for fear of creating panic for it not to happen. BBC have been playing it down......then will issue a warning 5 mins after it starts snowing!!! LOL

AH666....I think im going to go via the A39 rather than A6....... queues will be forming long before that...Moutiers is the main bottle neck and sometimes the toll across the viaduct,(cant remember exactly where that is, Villefranche I think).......... leave resort by 6 I would suggest on the way home
Well, it's only polite to Register

next dilemma......Dijon - carry on on the A6 at Dijon or branch off to A39....... A6 I know is shorter but not much in it A39 quieter as less Paris traffic. Only been doing this for 15 years and still undecided!!! LOL
After all it is free Go on u know u want to!

http://www.meteox.com/forecastloop.aspx?type=1 band of snow sweeping south pretty much all of Friday now and lingering around sat am which could make the usual bottlenecks even more aggro than usual can t change it, just hope we are ahead of it. Convey of three with two other cars that swear they d never drive................until they saw the easyjet flight costs this year for HT!!! LOL

dannyboy.....see you there ...where you staying in SF ? traffic builds early on the approach to Tarentaise which why we are breaking the back of it Friday and staying in chambery and plan to be OTR by 8am to get to SF for around 10am ski passes reloaded from last year so ready to ski Saturday and get an extra day
Otherwise you'll just go on seeing the one name:

Friday looks like it could be horrendous for anyone driving down...............like me. Rain/Snow from norethrn France the whole way down. Obviously a lot can change between now and then...............and I hope it does. Don t fancy being stuck behind snow ploughs for miles on end http://www.meteox.com/forecastloop.aspx?type=1

"and I'd love some suggestions for how to improve this journey" take the kids out of school on the Friday, - its the only way to make the journey less aggro, they don t do bugger all on the last day anyway Drive down on the Friday as far as poss, last year we did just east of Lyon, a lovely little village called Genas, but even then after leaving at 9am were still caught up in some traffic, so this year going on to Chambery on the Friday, leaving hopefully a simple 1.5 hours up to Sainte Foy
You know it makes sense.

bar shaker - I m going back a number of years since I last done it, but I think the quickest was around 2hrs 50min. It was in the days of Ryanair flights for £0.01 so a no brainer

6.20pm is 7.20pm French time, plus 1.5hour flight is 9pm before you get off the plane, get luggage, clear customs, get car hire sorted.......................... more like midnight in Val I ve done it too for weekends, but also flown into Turin via STN as that's more local this end for me........extra cost of Frejus tunnel but not much difference in duration of drive

popped out to Morillon yesterday, although not in ski capacity as there is nothing open, but the hum drum of the annual chalet complex AGM......but having not been to Morillon for 11 years forgot just how stunning a place it is. Blue skies and green grass and snow capped mountains in the distance is visually without parallel.....imho Not much happening but La Puzze was open and packed inside.......3 course plat du jour 13 euros........maybe higher in season.....but even still tremendous value..... now just need the kids to be a bit older and the chalet mortgage paid off so the rent less important.....to make it a second home.

been several times in April...a lot of it is north facing so protected for longer periods from the fierce sun at that time of year........we love it but I guess it depends on your group composition and how many miles you want to ski......its too small for many, but then the mega resorts are too big for us. our kids are young so we feel comfortable they know where they are going if they want to do an extra run whilst we are finishing lunch or having a break.......
