Mother Nature is such a tease!

Cheers, I was going to start a thread then I encountered some pre-season technical faults...which were more in need of attention.

@dave_3, don't worry about the GM. In January it is often the case that the skiing everywhere else in the valley and beyond (Megeve, Combloux, etc) is as good or better than the GM.

Just checked my diary for last winter. Of 20 days skiing in January, I only skied GM twice, and that was only because our instruction from Alison Culshaw was there. In fact my first day at the top of GM wasn't until 16th February. I don't recall feeling that I was missing out on much.

Going to Argentiere in December - snow was amazing last year (had to dig the car out after two nights) hoping for more of the same. Any locals predicting good things in the Chamonix Valley??

Forecast is (currently) quite bad for the Alps for the next month.

Argentiere and Chamonix are low.

More likely to be brown or green than white.

 You know it makes sense.

Only just seen the Lognan and Grand Montets closure news, absolutely gutted! We've got a trip booked for 12-19 January, does anybody think we should look to relocate from Argentiere?

Only if you planned to use the top bin on GM a lot, otherwise it's no difference really and there is still the new Tabe lift and beginners area. We're still going at half term and not expecting any difference.

@skiing_snerrick, what news? I haven't heard anything? If you refer to the Lognan fire, wellit's very sad but it was a crap restaurant. Ony really affects the top benne. Capacity of lower cable was 700/hour, capacity of new(ish) bubble is 3,500 an hour so it's not at all the end of the world.

I have an apartment near the Brevent if you want an option...

Anyone heard anything substantive about what this "marked skinning track" might consist of? Seeing as I generally quite enjoy the climbing it might improve my runs down the glacier side to have minimal people on them!

On the snow front, there's a lot of time for some weather between now and dec, and if there's no snow whatsoever on the GM everywhere in the french alps will likely be looking a tad thin...

Looking forward to new year, it'll be my first time in Chamonix. Hopefully it'll be looking a lot whiter by then!
