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.......
which other snowHeads love to answer.

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.

we pretty much always drive......cost v flying is a no brainer at peak weeks......especially if you have your own skis etc and are self catering. French roads pretty easy........ only ball ache tends to be UK Border Force delays to get back into the UK.....as it was Saturday evening!!!!!!!!!

Long term: a real storm? There finally is a real storm on the maps for the beginning of 2017. When this actually happens we can say goodbye to almost six weeks of high pressure without snowfall and high temperatures. Something in the atmosphere should change in the week of the 2nd of January and we can get ready for lots of PowderAlerts. Finally... courtesy of wepowder

courtesy of Morris on wepowder The Big Change I introduced the Big Change earlier this week. The Alps are dealing with high pressure for weeks now. The first breakthrough from the south appeared on the maps of the American model on Saturday. According to the calculations a storm that's getting stronger and stronger over the Atlantic will breach the belt of high pressure, and after that a storm depression could develop itself over the Mediterranean. This storm will breach the belt of high pressure And this storm over the Mediterranean develops In such a situation cold air initially flows from the continent into the Italian Po Valley. There's lots of humidity in that region and the current will pick up extra moisture in the Adriatic Sea. This combination of cold air and moisture will hit the mountains at the border of Italy and France and the mountains at the border of Italy and Switzerland (the Italian Piedmont). This could be the jackpot. If it all happens. But as always the devil is in the details. Because there is no strong jet stream south of the Alps, it is very difficult to calculate the exact storm path of this little Mediterranean storm. And that can also be the reason why the models are totally lost. We just have to wait until the calculations get more stable and even than nothing is more fickle as a storm in the Mediterranean.
