I've spending a week in Mottaret at the end of January, first time visiting the three valleys, I can't wait! Looking forward to updates from anyone out there during the season

We are out December 23rd, we usually go in January but we keep getting more and more grief from the school for taking the kids out so thought we would go out for Xmas instead. Fingers crossed it will be a good season.

Usual Feb half term madness in Les Menuires for us. Look out for for a few adults severely outnumbered by crazy kids.....

We are renting a place with a friend for the whole season in St Marcel (1m from St Martin). Won't be there all the time, but hoping for a good 4-6 weeks on the snow over the season-lucky us!

ok I'm going early, doing the IO clinic based out of Les Allues from 9 Dec. Done this trip a few times - one year we had neck deep powder just up from the Chaudanne (no really Rob@Rar has the photo!) and one year we were bused round to VT to get any snow. This year, well who knows...

Looking like it fell heavily in Val Thorens and more forecast for the week ahead. This pretty much nails on a reasonable start in December. I'll be out first week so pleased for a November dump.

Yep just about snowing down at 850m in Bozel, cars with about 10cm accumulation coming down from Champagny on the school run...

However (engaging grumpy old(-ish) git mode for a few seconds) this is an entirely normal November occurence and bears no relation to how the season will be... (remember last year and the free ski day in Courchevel that was about this time...).

Still, woop woop!

Is it true that all 3V resorts but VT will not be open prior to 9/12? I am in VT from 3/12 and must admit it never occurred to me to check. IS there any chance of some opening if conditions permit?

Officially yes (other than Orelle). It's not impossible for opening weeks to be brought forward if conditions allow, but that would probably open happen at about 10 days notice. And even in opening week it is not uncommon for some lifts remain closed.

It's not just dependent on snow: lift, piste, rescue and medical services all have to be sufficiently staffed. And prior to the advertised dates some hotels, shops, bars and restaurants will not have sufficient staff to open, even if the lifts are running.

First trip to Les Meniures and first trip with the 11 month old boy! Having grown up in Norway I'm super excited his first proper winter(I know he was alive last year however TOH would not allow a trip with a less than 6 month old Shocked ) trip booked in for 6th January.

Anyway we're staying up next to La Ferme in Reberty 2000 which is apparently great.

Looking forward to all the tips and updates over next few weeks

I should have been in the office this morning, but somehow got side-tracked...







Now its all systems go tying up some loose ends of admin and packing for a work trip back to the UK: Baffin Island slideshow tomorrow (Weds) night (7pm at The Plough in Hathersage for anyone near the Peak District / Sheffield), then on to the Kendal Mountain Festival for my usual stint on the main presenting team. Looking forward to seeing Jeremie Heitz at the Ortovox Snowsports Session on Saturday evening!

Courchevel opening a couple of lifts tomorrow, though if past years are anything to go by it will be absolute mayhem..!!
