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 :-)

I have booked an off-piste instructor for all day on Saturday so hopefully will be able to find the secret stashes of untracked snow. If anyone wants to join me and share the costs you're more than welcome.

I'm thinking about coming out to Verbier for the weekend - there doesn't look like much more snow in the forecast before then - is there likely to be any off piste (without much touring) that hasn't been tracked out by Saturday ?

how can they afford the snow factory??? Glencoe did crowd funding. The crowdfunding never got anywhere near the total. Maybe that’s why they have some kind of lease deal with the Lecht.

28/11/2018 The ski and snowboard season has arrived in Baqueira Beret with a seasonal start according to the forecasts and much of the central area of Baqueira open for those who want to get rid of the irrepressible desire to slide on the snow after a warm summer And a fall with a high precipitation. Among the heavy snowfalls in early November, which left important thicknesses in high altitudes, and the snow production of the last weeks is expected to open 27 km of slopes all in the area of Baqueira. The thicknesses are currently 30 cm in 2500 and 15 cm at 1800. The openings for the premiere will be gondola Baqueira, TSD Mirador, Tsd Pla de Baqueira, Cintas Carreretes 1 and 2 in the area of beginners and TSD Jorge Jordana that will give access to the entire North face. The station will keep its operation open during the week in a stable way, if the weather allows it, until the scheduled closing date that is April 22nd. The station's technical managers are working to make possible the opening of more tracks and lifts facing the December bridge. In terms of restoration, the Self Service Café Bosque, the Parrec D'Orri and the Möet Winter Lounge restaurant will be open with DJ Luca Feller cheering the terrace and the establishment with more atmosphere après ski will be opened, the Bar Baqueira 1500. With regard to the ticket office, you can purchase the ski pass in the galleries of Ruda, and the 1500 central offices. The price of the ski pass will be special for the occasion of €31 Adult Day and €21 infantile day. With regard to the rental and sale of equipment, the Ski Service stores of 1500, Ruda and Bosque will be operational. In addition to the rental and preparation and repair of material with two new machines of last generation, in Baqueira Store of Ruda it is possible to acquire everything necessary for the winter. During this weekend you will be able to hire the practical services of ski-guard and boots, for the whole season, located in Ruda, Baqueira 1500 and Baqueira 1800.

Les Saisies did that when the Tour de France came through a couple of years ago - in a warm mid-summer! Got them on the telly but yes, it's a gimmick. La Rosiere did that this year when the tour visited too.

Just booked my first trip to Tignes 13th - 20th April 2019. Never skied in France before and also never skied so late in the season either, anyone have Tignes experience of this time of the year?

Freezing level forecast to fall to 1600/1100/700/1100 m for Sat/Tue coming. 26 cm of snow forecast in Baqueira too. Not that it will last but it does whet the appetite......

Just booked Baqueira Beret for New Year and now it’s time to do more research and watch the weather/webcams for the next few months. Usually ski the Alps but have only read very good things about Baqueira Beret so thought that we would give it a try for a change. We’re a family and it seems to cater for all levels.

One tip for the Marmolada gacier - as it's a cable car that takes you up there, if you're not first off it's best to wait 10-15 mins until most people are well down the piste as there is only one route down from the top. When I skied it last year it was a whiteout and absolute carnage ! Lot's of skiers who were overestimating their skills/outside their comfort zone/crashes/injuries.

Economics. The market dictates the price, they will charge what they can get away with. It isn't a rip-off as nobody is forcing anyone to pay these prices - the consumer has the choice to pay or walk away. Simple really.

@nozawaonsen Leaving for La Rosiere on Sunday for a week and the weather seems to be warming. Hopefully not too warm for freezing at night so that we can have a nice freeze/thaw cycle and some good spring corn off piste. What are your thoughts ? Thanks in advance.

When people talk about buying them lunch, is that because the lesson is all day and so you are naturally stopping for lunch? Or is it just expected you shout them lunch after a morning lesson as a 'tip' All day private lesson for me.

Problem is skiers are actually quite a conservative population This. I know loads of professional people who ski (doctors/dentists/lawyers/architects etc). Most are pretty conservative and wouldn't be seen dead on an outlandish pair of skis. Or on a board for that matter.......

"If you think Serre isn't a big ski area then I wouldn't imagine Sauze would do much for you either" - but you have the whole of Sestriere & Montgenevre as well as Sauze ............ As has been mentioned, chalets in Italy are few & far between, tho' we did stay at one in Arabba a couple of years ago, but Inghams have now removed from their brochure :~/ Would happily go back to the Dolomites if we could find somewhere to stay that suited, would happily use a hotel rather than chalet if everything else fits .............. La Rosiere, 2 of our group stayed at a couple of years back, they were disappointed in the ski area, said it was much better over at La Thuile, as was the weather, but I know the links quite often close due to winds- we're just a bunch of whingy old gits really aren't we?!! :twisted: Don't think the Miami beach snow is what I'm looking for! :shock: We stayed in a catered chalet in Canazei ((Val Di Fassa) over New Year this year with Crystal. Maybe worth a look.

I am out on Sunday for a few days. Have booked up with Evo for morning off piste sessions. Am I to miss out on the powder again? Hopefully the off-piste is skiable though as I like an adventure. I was in Tignes on the 8th-15th April last year and did a week off-piste with ESF. There was plenty to keep us entertained then (in a poor snow year). Given that they're reporting 235 cm at resort level you won't have a problem.

Scotland is pretty much 100% open today, so there should be plenty open in 1-2 weeks. Book it. Scotland is pretty much closed today. Lots of snow but very high winds.

Can't say I was overly impressed with the chap in the bobble hat who presented the after-midnight coverage. Where did they get him from? The Blue Peter auditions? Not very impressive and struggling even to read the autocue. Edit - just googled him, apparently he was on Blue Peter! Agree - he was terrible. Completely out of his depth. If I were a cynic I would have said that he was there because of the BBC's blatant positive discrimination policy.........

The West, Glencoe and Nevis Range have received over a 1 metre of fresh snow since the weekend, and there is more to come over the next few days, Eastern resorts have also got a good dump. Scotland is having a stellar season so far. Stellar? :shock: Not stellar imo until we get some high pressure/blue sky days. So far this season nothing at Christmas/early Jan but plenty snow since but with constant very poor weather and many lift closure days for wind. Live up here and keen to get up there (Glencoe) and following weather reports to pick days and it's not been good. Half term holidays in Argyll this week and until today it's been plain awful, Glencoe webcams still look poor presently and website saying problems with wind again, supposed to improve for tomorrow hopefully. Need high pressure soon. :D I agree with this. It's a pity that this should have been the busiest week of the year for the ski resorts (half term) but very little has been available due to the weather.

We are thinking about a week in St. Moritz in April (7th-14th) and would be flying into Milan and driving to resort. Looking at Google maps the only troublesome point seems to be the Maloja Pass - is this open all winter ? Also, any recommendations for ski school in St Moritz would be appreciated. We are probably going to be staying near Corvatch due to the north facing slopes.

The thing about skiing the Flypaper is that it's pretty convex so it's like skiing over a huge roller. You have a sensation of skiing off the edge of the world. Don't fall or you will end up at the bottom.
