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.......
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

much depends on your budget too.................we had the same dilemma at new year...first time catered chalet and unsure of the protocol. We, 5 couples, did 50 euros a couple, so the chef & host got 250 euros. Seeing your comment about 10% makes me think we were stingy as the chalet was £19k.......and 10% of that at £1900!!!!!...... but I m sure 250 euros as a percentage of their salary for the week would have equated to more than 10%......

webcams down in Ste Foy also show new snow, so snow line below 1500m, but not by much I don t think as across the valley you can see the white trees stop and the green line start.......

Dashed...... agreed mine has been the same...............but there is a marked difference between the chalet operators who are trying to fill empty weeks/beds................and the likes of posts by chocs and steve angus who are at the coal face every day.

hahahaha.....LOL...poppyhill. "Empty vessels and noise etc." that's a fairly accurate description of your 10 posts so far......... if you had the faintest clue about how the micro climate around the French/Italian border that Le Fornet sits bang on perhaps you d understand. Read through some of Chocsaways 3494 posts........I think you ll find they are deadly accurate from someone in town almost all season........both positive and negative around snow, weather and even flying to and from. perhaps you need to take some of your own advice - "Call your therapist, drink more"

check out the View from Val thread, to clarify this issue over the "fresh" snow at Le Fornet & Pisallas. Both Chocksway, Steve Angus & Endoman, skied the damn stuff and have pics. I don t think chocksaway is over reacting......he has been posting here for years, daily about the goings on in Val & Tignes................and then has some 9 post wonder pop up and say he is talking shite............I d say his reply was quite constrained!!!!!

"Imagine logging onto a football forum and expecting the day's results to not be discussed until after the conclusion of Match Of The Day later that evening". LOL - absolutely......can t believe the pelters that the OP is getting.........championing a great british result.....which is as rare as rocking horse do do in skiing................and being lamented by some for spoiling their Sunday!!!!!! if its that important...watch it live or stay off the net................simples!!!!!! reading some of the posts on this thread...goes a long way to explaining why many think that people who going skiing think their sh@t don t stink!!!!!!!........Micky Flanagan could have a field day in here.

Down the road in ste foy and some new snow would be welcome..... although have to say the piste management have done a superb job getting open what they have with the weather and snow cannons.........and skiing in sunny conditions are very nice......
