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!!!!!!!!!
Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name.

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

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.

meteox going for what looks like a decent amount of snow starting early hours 19th.......appreciate its a long way out but more hope than I ve seen anytime recently, so will hang on to that positivity. find meteox quite often very accurate.....they certainly were bang on about snowmagedon two years........not sure which output they use to project.....?

11th looks like the next possibility of something falling from the ski in the Tarentaise............hopefully that will herald a breakdown and be the first of several lows to push through before the 29th.........from a purely personal and selfish POV

ewmarine......well looking at the Ste Foy webcams, rob Mackley was very much correct........this time last week it was a winter wonderland.......now its a sodden green meadow at resort level at 1550m.....and 1800m, top of the first lift, there is very little left of what was.............between 2100m and the top its probably very good. but anyway it doesn t open for another 3 weeks odd.....so pray the white stuff returns. crazy that probably not more than 6-10 miles as the crow flies that Bardonnechia etc have been blitzed

best start for 20 years.........courtesy of www.weathertoski.co.uk Snow conditions in the Alps are exceptional for mid-November - you would have to go back to 1996 to find anything comparable in the north-western Alps - though there have been snowier Novembers in recent years in both the eastern and the southern Alps.
