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 :-)

Do you just need to turn up or is there a book in advance option? Thinking of doing it later in March

@nozawaonsen, What are your thoughts on the coming week in the Northern French Alps? Looks like some good snowfalls but at what altitudes?

Hi there, I'm looking for the closest shop / expert where I can get some Kingpin bindings mounted to my skis. I'm living in South Oxfordshire and my nearest place (Carters in Reading) don't have the correct jig. Any other suggestions apart from Snow'n'rock etc. I know I can go to the Piste Office but Nottingham is a little far!
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

Hi, I have a trip booked to North West Iceland in May this year - some ski touring in the fjords (cant wait!) but I'm struggling to find any reports of how the winter has been there. Anyone know any good sites (that have reliable information) for snow in Iceland? Or better still - anyone skied Iceland recently?!?

1873Chris, Hestra are being very slow sending out gloves this year. No idea why. E&W should probably have kept you updated none the less....

nozawaonsen, breaking the European trend for a second - do you have some time to share your thoughts about Japan (Hokkaido) over the next 10 days? I am leaving on Friday and dont know what size skis to take. Fat or very fat?!?

12z showing a big fall in temps after the rain/snow events in the western alps on the 9th Dec. Still fingers crossed that the snow limit lowers, but most runs are not suggesting this... :( at least FI shows a return to way below average cold temps in the run up to christmas....

snowandtrek, what depth of snow is around the 1000m - 1200m mark? Am thinking of coming over next weekend and might look to do some touring? Good conditions higher up? :D

MagSeven, Thanks for the blog link, some very interesting reading. I have my heart set on Japan at the moment, but am slightly concerned about the price. Second choice is probably a Utah road trip. Anyone tried taking a campervan/mobile home/RV around utah ski areas in winter??? It might be a terrible idea..... Dot., Kamcatka might be a little too far out of the way!

j0n, I went to Revelstoke last year, on the end of a work trip, and it had not snowed for 3 weeks. The terrain was undoubtedly great, but the snow that time was crap. I know lightening does not strike twice, but I have a feeling of been there done that with Revelstoke... clarky999, Have you, or anyone for that matter been to Gulmarg?? Looks an interesting prospect, so long as the lift keeps running! shoogly, when you say AK do you have a specific place in mind. I dont think my budget can cope with Heliskiing! Japan was my first option but I am slightly concerned about spending a lot of money and not skiing very long descents, does anyone know what the gradient and vertical are like in Japan (Hokkaido area?)/ Thanks for the comments, some fresh ideas!

Hi all, I am looking at booking a 2 week trip next year to ski as much powder as possible with some mates. We are all good skiers (well good enough for most things powder!) and would like to spend 2 weeks skiing the best powder on offer. So, if you had 2 weeks and say a budget of 2 grand (so no heliskiing or probably catkiing) where would you go? Japan? Utah? Somewhere else.... ps. I know you cant guarantee the snow but I am hoping that we will be lucky!
After all it is free Go on u know u want to!

In Les Gets at about 1300m. There is probably 30cm of fresh over the last 36hrs.... hopefully it will clear a little so we can head high! Some family flying out tomorrow from Heathrow, fingers crossed!

Just finished a days skiing in Les Gets. Not many of the lifts were open but the snow on the pistes is pretty good and there is about 25cms of fresh snow for a little off piste action. More lifts are to open tomorrow, including Ranfolly express and rosta. It should be a good day!

So am I right in thinking that the forecast has moved away from loads of snow next week? Recent GFS runs seem to think so? :cry:

you cant go wrong with Nicholas Tricou (from Ski Plus in Les Gets, at the back of Berthet Sports). He is a qualified high mountain guide and knows the area very well.
