Snow Reports

Mail for help.Help!!

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 :-)

@bar shaker, @endoman, @Steve Angus, thanks for the info on "Crocodile Alley", will give it a go! I wonder if there are any other little "fun features" that are not on the piste map? (already know about Vallee Perdu :) )
Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name.

@Steve Angus, hiya Steve/anyone - I have a question - I seem to remember there is a little "gully" to the skiers-left of Verte piste, between Marmottes and Mont Blanc chairs? I remember seeing quite a few people down there... is it a thing? Does it have a name? Is it fun? Safe? Easy? Thanks!

any recomendations where i can get a plate of chips and a beer up on the mountain, obviously not looking for posh expensive chips......thanks Marmottes at the bottom of Borsat/Marmottes lift, perhaps? Ouillette on top of Solaise, maybe - I've never been but I get the impression it might be what you're after.
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

Apparently there is some construction going on near Rosset lift. Does anyone know what work is being done?
Well, it's only polite to Register

Hi guys/gals, hope this is an okay place to post this, When/if you arrive at a Geneva and are waiting in arrivals for your transfer, what's your preferred spot for maximum comfort and decent food/drink? (excluding any fancy airline lounges that some of you might have access to!) Thanks for any replies!
Then you'll get to see more forums.

Hey guys/gals, sometimes these meteogramms have red bars within the green snow bars at the bottom. Anyone know definitively what the red bars mean?
And post your own questions...

@Jellybeans1000, agreed, bergfex is "ZAMG" whatever that is, but I've noticed it's definitely more in line with ECM.
which other snowHeads love to answer.

@Bennyboy1, GFS Op run (snow forecast) vs ECM-based (bergfex). The rest of the GFS ensemble runs say more snow, like ECM, so it'll be somewhere in the middle probably! See here - - if snowforecast used the average (red line) instead of the op run (black line), then it would be much closer to the bergfex numbers...
And they're a friendly bunch.

@James the Last, @Dr John, thanks! Sounds perfect. For some reason I did not try the Borsat/Grand Pre lifts last year.
You know it makes sense.

Hey Steve, a little question from me (feel free to answer on the broadcast or here)... For a decent piste-only skier like myself, can you recommend any pistes where there is some fun to be had just by straying off to the side of it? (I will be shepherding my beginner wife&daughter down blues most of the time so it would be nice if I could alleviate the boredom a bit!) Thanks for all the broadcasts and blogs as usual!
Otherwise you'll just go on seeing the one name:

Sorry if I'm late to the party, but I just noticed the Les Coches webcam is back in working order! Thought I would share...

Thanks again Steve for the session this morning. Great tips and we very much enjoyed our well-earned hot dogs in the Rosee Blanche. Then headed back up to Toviere then blasted down Combe Folle and Trolles with new-found confidence! :) All the best, Alan

@Steve Angus, What I did come across today was this article about livestreaming from a gopro through periscope which opens up a whole new ball game! Link is below: I will be in Espace Killy on Feb 5/6/7 with a friend who has a GoPro (hopefully the Hero4) - I will try to broadcast from @alansk on periscope, so start following me if you like and wait and see :) Then hopefully Steve can critique my shoddy skiing technique too!

Ah thanks - so "Toviere lift" is the "Aeroski", I guess. And it was not clear from piste map that you could ski from the top of Toviere to bottom of Marmottes. Cheers for clearing that up!
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

Hi! :) We have a trip to Tignes Les Boisses in Feb... I was just wondering what is the quickest route from Tignes Les Boisses to the top of the Bellevarde. From the piste map I would say: Boisses lift Aiguille Rouge lift Bleuets piste (not sure now... maybe should go to Aeroski instead of Paquis?) Paquis lift Crocus piste Combe Folle lift Violettes then Creux piste Mont Blanc lift Moutons piste Marmottes lift I there now? :~/ Any advice appreciated! Thanks!
