Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 40,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

This Sunday was less bad as predicted. It is still cold, no wind and clouds in the afternoon. A lot of ice cristals were floating in the air. In combination with the low position of the sun this gave very nice sundogs and sunpillars.

Mist, light snowfall and a little bit colder. By surprise at high altitudes there was sometimes some faint sunshine. There is a lot of fresh powder already and every day the snowlayer becomes higher.

A very cold day, a clear blue sky and at the tops strong winds. The temperature was -15 degrees at 3000 meter, but with the wind it feels like -25. Some clouds were far away in the lower valleys.

Early morning it was -20 degrees at the tops. During the day the temperature climbed to -15 at 3000 meters and -12 at 2000 meter. There were a lot of high thin clouds and sometimes faint sunshine. The snowcristals at this temperatures are very hard and sharp and this can be noticed when gliding over less steep slopes. It goes less smooth then a few days before, when the temperature was much higher.

Big weather differences between the three valleys. Storm and some sunshine in les Menuires. Most of the higher lifts were closed and also some pistes due high avalanche risk. Nice sunny weather in Méribel and Courchevel.

Frosty the Snowman,
The left knee is okay, but the right one without the ACL is less good als before. No off-piste skiing anymore.

Welcome back Very Happy . 2 hours that's bad, when I was a transfer driver it took 45mins from St Martin to Moutiers once, we passed the problem at the bottom, a French flag waving pensioner in a wheelchair who was leading the convoy!

It took us over two hours to get from Val T through Les Menuires. Once passed it was fairly clear No discernable obstruction but I suspect it was the fact the ploughs were still operating and had been since 3am.

What time did you come through? I wondered how bad it would be coming from VT. We would have been better leaving earlier, I reckoned 8AM would be enough for a 14:15 flight but the big blockage was through Les M and down to St Martin, probably idiots who hadn't put their chains on then faffing on the road. After St Martin it was fine, but it was 11AM by then.

An other record three years ago on a Saterday morning : Les Menuires - Moutiers start at 9.00 and arrival at 13.30.

In 1986 on a sunny Saturday the trip from Annecy to Moutiers lasted 8 hours.

A part of the day was sunny and at the tops it was very cold. The fresh snow was beautiful and at the tops nearly 50 cm high.

A foggy day with only during short periods some sunshine. Light snowfall during the night and morning which resulted in 5 cm fresh snow. Wonderful soft pistes, but below 2000 meter some ice due to the rainfall of last Friday.
