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. 50,000+ 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 :-)

Lake Louise in Canada, but I can't imagine for long.

One problem though. Even if a resort shuts it's ski lifts, unless the foreign office advises against travel I don't think there's a chance of getting a refund/insurance for flights and accommodation. With the direction the government seem to be taking, it's not looking so likely for further travel bans.
Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name.

But then you have to consider the vast number of mild unconfirmed cases which wont go into the statistics. For example, children who can barely have symptoms.

Best thing ever :) Yes, it's so much more expensive but so much fun to ski with wee ones. Especially if you like mini ski crosses and kids terrain parks! What I did... Season 1 (pregnant) I skied very cautiously in the 2nd trimester which timed perfectly with ski season. My husband was learning to ski so it was perfect just to just snowplow around the bunny hill with him. I suffered badly with pelvic girdle pain, to the point that sometimes I couldn't walk. For some reason the pain went away as soon as my skis were on ?! I invested in 'mummy' skis, you know the flowery ones that are light, about 10 cm shorter than my regular skis. Season 2 (6 month old) thankfully grandma was on hand, but I was still breast feeding so could ski with breaks every 2 hours or so. Season 3 (18 months) only a couple of days due to finances Season 4 (36 months) discovered esprit ski, the wee one was big for her age so she went into piu piu club (esf) and snow club in the afternoon. We managed 2 weeks but it was expensive. From 3 years she was on the 'big' hill with me, albeit slow. Holidays were diy and lots of days in Scotland. By 5 I had troubles keeping up, now I have the best ski buddy you could ask for :)
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

In the 90s my friend and I tried to drive from Toronto to Banff non stop. The car broke down near Calgary where we were forced to spend the night in the car. Did Jasper to Sudbury on the way back, best trip ever!

With the prospect of another snowless winter I'm considering taking kiddo for a week in france, possibly enrolling her in a half day 'competition' course. We've had varied experiences over the years with esf, from fabulous in La Rosiere to terrible elsewhere. She specifically wants to do gates but doesn't speak french. Does anyone have any personal experience with these courses or can anyone recommend a particular resort to do it at? Half days only so not the uk camps :) tia

If it's simply for travel money, have you considered just using a debit card like at home? I recently opened a Starling Bank account. It took minutes. There's no international fees, and it uses Mastercard rates. I've used in in Canada and saved me loads of money. And there's no hassle of carrying around wads of cash.
You know it makes sense.

We've always hired a car, but that's split between 4 of us. Never used chains. It can be handy for self catering to do groceries if you're not in the town center. But I can see the benefits of using the bus too.

Esprit do a single parent deal in La Rosiere, if you go certain weeks your son could go for almost free. You have to phone to get the prices. Me and kiddo went for about £900 last year. It's got a great childrens area nearby and fun ski crosses for when he gets more adventurous.

@Bones, Spot on! Not your brochure view of the hill though! Kiddo insisted on skiing despite the rain. They play a hockey game on the ski hill on the last weekend of the season, pretty cool to see. Over to you!

When are you going? Some hills have reduced rate passes in the spring, Lake louise had a bargain spring pass last year, if I remember correctly $499 per adult. https://www.skilouise.com/passes-and-products/spring-passes.php Looks like they're doing it again this year.
