9 of us arrive end of Jan, 2 are new skiers. Any recommendations for which ski school we should look to get them with?

@blacksheep, If they want group lessons I'd go with European Ski School. Some English Instructors, lots of Italians but all with very good English. If you want private lessons, take a look at the first post on this thread where all the options are listed.

Hi ,
Loving the updates and photos . First time skiing here and at Xmas for us. We normally go later in the season and we were worried there might be no snow .
Is it ever a problem driving up to the resort or are the roads kept fairly clear ? I arrive 23dec at 10pm . The hire car should have snow tyres or chains or both hopefully .
Cheers . 😀⛷

@Deecee6415, Welcome to snowHead Snow hasn't been fantastic the last 2 Christmases, still plenty of skiing though, hopefully better this year. You really need both tbh. If it is really bad the police may even turn back cars with winter tyres and no chains although mostly the tyres will do. However they do work really hard to keep the roads clear especially on changeover days.

 Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

Really cold here today, hasn't got above -6°C in resort and very dull. A bit of fresh snow overnight and it's falling steadily now. A cold weekend up the mountain, Sunday looks best, got to be done though Toofy Grin

Thanks for the updates Claude.
The conditions are looking a bit more hopeful now and there seems to be more snow forecast in a weeks time so fingers crossed!

Went up for 3 hours but skied a fair bit in that time. It was very cold -13C plus windchill at 3200m. Not that much open tbh, lots of runs and lifts closed. Mixture of snow conditions and lack of punters I think. We definitely need more snow and less wind. But it is only 2nd December after all. It looks great in the photos at least Very Happy

Skied yesterday and today too. Not that much, 3 hours or so each day. The wind has played havoc here scouring the snow away from several key areas causing lift and piste closures. Hopefully the snow due from Thursday onwards will sort it.

Glacier yesterday, Decathlon ski test


Hitting a few bumps (rocks too unfortunately) before my girlfriend comes, she loves them and skis them very well.

Fair bit of snow overnight. Woken again by the snowploughs and they've just been blasting up the mountain, 1st time I've heard it this winter. Due to snow every day for next week. I'm going to try to get out tomorrow, day off from bathroom. Some sun but extremely cold from forecast. Friend doing bathroom is a skier, no friends or plumbing on a blue sky powder day Very Happy

Big dump overnight, it's still snowing now. Lots of blasting, can't see things opening very early. It's due to clear this afternoon, if so will go up Very Happy

It was really nice skiing for a few hours yesterday afternoon. After the snow the sun appeared, although it was very cold and windy higher. Because of that nothing above 2600m was open. The snow was much better after the dump. Snowed again overnight and still is. I think it will turn to rain lower later though. A lot due in the next week.

Snowed all morning yesterday then turned to rain in the afternoon and hasn't stopped since. Due to continue most of the day turning to snow later. Wind is extremely strong and all lifts are closed. Treacherous driving and walking conditions, snow, then rain, freezing overnight. Road up was blocked earlier.

Hello - quick question - how easy is it to take up the free days skiing at Alpe D'Huez on the six day LDA pass? Does the same pass work with the Alpe D'Huez lift system or do you have to get a day pass? I have been to LDA three times in the last five years with my family and while we love it enough to come back again (read: Mrs Spin has insisted ) I fancy a bit of a change and the rest of my party aren't up to skiing La Grave. Puzzled

@Spin Doctor, Yes the pass just works. 2 days I think for a 6 day pass. There is a bus 2 days a week (Wednesday and Thursday I think) or drive there, 45 mins, or Auris, 25 mins. Or if flush take the helicopter, surprisingly cheap, 60 or 70€.

@Snowysarah, I'm a bit late to the party, but we've actually just upped our capacity to 14 people (www.chaletmorville.com). Maybe next time Madeye-Smiley
Venosc is a beautiful place to stay, so I'm sure you'll enjoy it! If you haven't booked ski hire yet, I do recommend using one of the shops besides the pistes, such as Jacques sports (you can use the code BASS to get an online discount) as this will save you having to walk anywhere in ski boots as they have lockers to keep your skis - this makes the walk from the top of the telecabine only 5 minutes.

Thank you Claude - much appreciated. Re helicopter - would love to - again the chances of getting Mrs Spin and the little Spins in a helicopter about as likely as them skiing La Grave Toofy Grin
