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 :-)

A little bonus today from Air France. We had some November flights to Buenos Aires refunded last year. They had been re-scheduled and this had provided us with an "out" as travel was looking unlikely anyway. (Argentina had closed the Borders). However they declined to refund extra charges for seat upgrades quoting something obscure that I can't remember. Thankfully our agent had suggested trying again when the dust had settled a bit. Resubmitted last week. Charges refunded to our CC today. 8)
Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name.

well when not getting drenched as it has been VERY warm and wet / slushy wet Just checked some old pics/videos from last season on my phone. It absolutely poured with rain up to about 2800 mtrs (top of Toviere) on the 2nd of February. Rained for about 24hrs and destroyed the off-piste after some great early season snow.
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

@Weathercam, she told me that the dameuse was on its way It's an odd term. But explains why for eg. Val d'Isere's translated Pisteurs' updates often refer to "ladies" moving the snow around.

I suspect that the proximity of that tree to the casualty may have helped to create an airway or air pocket. After posting this I spotted on Steve Angus's Val D' blog that the guy had apparently tried to take cover behind a tree as the slide engulfed them from above.

@boarder2020, Thanks for the info. I know from my own experience what it can cost in the Alps. €1200 per month for a 23 sq.mtr studio (in resort). Big enough for two when my partner flew out to stay and had the seasonnaire bonus of a washing machine. I had fantastic 5 month stay as retirement gift to myself. Last Season I was looking to do about 8 weeks but Covid brought all that to a halt.

@boarder2020, Just out of interest what type of accommodation do you get for £335 per month? That sounds remarkably cheap compared to anything in the Alps.

@mountainaddict, Yep - just so frustrating... It seems a long time since I had to scarper out of Tignes on the 17th of March as travel restrictions were tightening up. I think I'm approaching the point where I don't think we (personally) will ski this season. Too many ifs & buts. Almost impossible to plan anything meaningful. If it's any consolation at all, a resident friend of ours has been skinning when and where allowed. It looks great on the webcams but they described snow conditions as "thin".

Some 20-odd years ago I had to borrow a Defender '90 to get home from work. I was working in Burnley and it had started snowing heavily around lunchtime. By early evening the snow was causing chaos and both the M65 and a56 (my normal route home) had been closed. A colleague who had wisely gone home early rang and offered the use of his Landy which he stored in the compound at work. It was a "toy" which he used for off-road trials. Completely standard apart from some M & S tyres. BUT... it was specced with 3rd diff lock and axle cross-locks. I had to drive over Burnley Summit and the moorland back roads to get home. In places the snow had drifted off the fields and completely filled in the road level with the tops of the stone walls. It was like a snowplough. Never missed a beat or ever felt like it was going to get stuck. I came across one guy who was trying to walk home home after abandoning his car. The snow was up to his waist and he was frozen. I was more surprised to find that his home was some 5-6 miles along the road. I think it took me about an hour and a half to get home ( normally 35 minutes) but I was very impressed with the capability of the little Defender. I spent a lot of time in my early motor trade years modifying and mending Landys. I never really rated them. Uncomfortable, noisy, thirsty things. They weren't too bad if operated within their original brief which I think was to transport 4 blokes and 5 cwt of kit cross country.

@Weathercam, I read something similar on a campervan thread recently. But I must admit it sounded more like desperate hope than fact at the current time. Full time motor-homers are obviously affected by this too. It was suggested that E.U. countries that rely on heavily on tourism will look to diverge from the 90/180 rule. For example offering 180 from 360 where 2x90 day stays would be allowed back to back to allow people to enjoy wintering in their 2nd homes. (either for winter sunshine or snow) One problem I can foresee with this would be if you had to transit through another Schengen country that didn't allow it.

The Facebook post from the Marie specifically advises using the Genepy run to gain access to the Glacier area. Therefore I don't think that run would be classified as "closed". (I almost typed "using Genepy to get higher" but thought better of it)

@rambotion, I think that you would need an IDP (driving permit) and probably a Green Card from your insurer as of 01/01/21. My guess is that there won't be a shortage of accommodation at Xmas.. I've used Airbnb, Tignes.co.uk , Agency Roc Blanc and Tilt/Panoramic for apartment rentals.
