Southern Alps/ Sauze/ Sestriere conditions

Are the conditions really as bad as they look? I think there is more snow at Aviemore at the moment than in Sestriere. It looks like there might be some snow on the way at the end of the week though! (for what long range forecasts are worth rolling eyes )

I was in Sestriere in Jan, and conditions were pretty poor. However they where making full use of their extensive snowcannons, which meant that the skiing was actually quite good: assuming you can hold an edge in 'firm' conditions.

I've just come back from Sestriere today (20 Feb). It has been very cold all week and they've had the snow making stuff running more or less non-stop. Almost everything in Sestriere/Borgata is open but the links are closed. Conditions, first thing, are fine but the blown snow gets swept off by midday and it's pretty icy underneath. (The blood wagons are doing good business.) We found it fine for a week but being confined to the Sestriere/Borgata area for much longer than that could be tedious. (I believe that Sauze is much worse and that only the lower runs are open.)

We have friends just back from Serre Chevalier, who found the conditions there disappointing.
