I was solo. An indispensable book is Freeriding in the Dolomites by Francesco Tremolada and another book called Ski Touring and Snowshoeing in the Dolomites by James Rushfourth. Francesco‘s book is wonderful! It has very good descriptions of the routes and is filled with beautiful photography. I chose a few routes that sounded good and then used Google Earth to better visualize the terrain. It helped a lot. Fortunately, Val Mesdi and Canale Joel had local skiers going down at the same time I was there, and we looked out for each other. Avalanche risk was low, luckily. Many thanks , I will look into getting a copy when the CV19 restrictions lift...

Great vids! Just out of interest how did you research the off piste routes you did ? It’s not clear in the less gnarly ones if you had a guide or were just skiing solo ??

A big thumbs up for Crystal, got an email on Thursday evening advising that our two booked trips one to Bad Hofgastein for this week and Obergurgl next month were cancelled and refunds would arrive to cards used within 14 days. Checked my finances this morning both full payments were credited yesterday. Well done guys I think you are extremely lucky. Our refund was promised within 14 days (back on 14 March) We then had a follow up email saying it might take up to end April...

Crystal have gone from an initial position of “a full refund in 14 days” to “we will try to make all refunds by end April”. The delay is blamed on a huge workload in processing refunds (plus presumably a much reduced staff). Plus they are actively calling all customers due a refund to talk about moving bookings to next season.
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

Manchester to Innsbruck booked for Xmas (20th to 27th Dec). £ 330 for 4 people including 4 x 23 kilo bags. (great value - we paid over £ 400 per person at Feb half term this year). Thinking positive ! Off to somewhere in the dolomites - they have given us great holidays - need to support them now...

The really scary thing is to look at how many die versus how many have recovered. +1 I was criticized a couple of days ago for pointing out the high death/recovery ratio of resolved cases, rather than death/infected, most of which are still in their early stages It depends on how on top of following up on active (mild) cases the countries are... I would guess authorities are not actively checking in on every case to see if they are recovered since they cannot keep on top of testing potential active cases. Surely the only stat is the death rate versus known cases ? Any speculation on active (non critical) cases is scaremongering frankly . And my position remains that this is likely to be closer to the German / South Korean figure rather than the Italian figure. Still a serious situation - but not quite the Armageddon some of the posters on here seem to be imagining.

@sheffskibod, you can't compare both countries. South Korea manufactures their own kit, you have drive-through check points to verify whether you are infected. They can check every day 19000 tests. They conduct thorough epidemiological enquiries of all infected persons thus putting all suspicious past contacts into quarantine. Does any of this sound similar to Western Europe? I was using the comparison to point to the reason why the mortality rate is probably not correct in Italy. The figure from South Korea is probably more accurate (and as time plays out , is likely to be revised lower).
Then you'll get to see more forums.

I am more inclined to believe the stats from South Korea where they have tested several hundred thousand people , have 7755 cases and 61 deaths. So nearer to a 0.79 % mortality. Italy has tested a lot less people . Nearer to 61,000 according to this site. https://ourworldindata.org/covid-testing-10march History will bear this out but looks like Italy has a lot more than the official 10149 active cases which is why the mortality rate appears so high.....and the health service is so overwhelmed. Not saying the situation is not serious , but we need to be mindful of data and not panic. That said - I am now almost hoping that France brings in the same restrictions as Italy (with UK likely shortly thereafter) so Crystal is forced to cancel our trip to Val on 28 March....and we will then hopefully be refunded. If they do not , I will likely still go regardless - sorry if that upsets people.

@sheffskibod If I were a European coming to North America for a family ski trip for a week, over Christmas, I'd pick either Vail or Park City. Both areas have enough skiing to keep a family occupied for a week, and have sizeable base towns for apres ski or even a day off the slopes. Whistler has enough ski terrain as well but I probably wouldn't go there so early in the season as its elevation is lower and there'd be a better chance of poor snow conditions. Both Vail and Park City have ski in/out accommodations. Aspen is a reasonable alternative but is hard and expensive to get to (and expensive once you are there!) Vail and Park City are a little different. Vail is about a two hour drive from Denver. There are non-stop flights from London direct to Denver but the drive to Vail is two hours from Denver and it can be a trying drive and occasionally the highway is closed to avalanche risk and often there is traffic. Park City is very convenient to get to as it's only a 45 min drive from Salt Lake City airport, on a highway that never closes. But I don't think there are any non-stop flights to Europe to SLC, and honestly SLC doesn't have the cultural activities that Denver offers (although both cities have great Mexican food!) Vail is a little higher in elevation than Park City and thus a bit colder. Vail, being in Colorado, offers recreational marijuana but on a family ski trip that may not change the equation much! You mention wanting to avoid lift lines. I doubt you can do that entirely over the Christmas vacation anywhere as that is a popular time to ski in the US as it is in Europe. If uncrowded lifts and a pleasant ski town are primary goals I'd consider a place like Sun Valley, Idaho. Very upscale, has a very pleasant town with an authentic vibe, great skiing, but it's a challenge getting there (4.5 hr drive from SLC, or fly to Boise Idaho or take an expensive flight to the local airport). Let me know if I can help further. Much appreciated ! I will have a further look into Park City.

A heads up - sportpursuit currently has a lot of Arcteryx gear on sale... Long delivery times (early April??) so no good if you need urgently . But if you are looking for stuff for next season - could be worthwhile. e.g. Rush jackets £ 340 (RRP £ 570) . Proton LT jacket £ 120 / RRP £200 (I bought one of these - great as a mid layer under a shell)

Anyway, maybe my observations will help someone out there. If you have questions about US resorts let me know. I've been to a lot of them (Park City, Solitude, Deer Valley, Alta, Snowbird, Snowbasin, Breckenridge, Vail, Beavercreek, Keystone, Steamboat, Jackson Hole, Big Sky, Revelstoke, Lake Louise). I would be interested to know which resort you would suggest for a first time trip to USA / Canada ? Family of four - me and the wife , and two kids now aged 13 and 17. All capable skiers but my wife prefers to be in a ski school as she feels safer (and it saves family fall outs). Although a guided ski group would work fine for her so long as it remains on piste (some gentle off the side of the piste is OK) Me and the kids happy to be shown around for a few days (so somewhere with free guiding ?) and will be happy to ski piste and gentle off piste (nothing too gnarly). Would not be too keen on having to travel around too much (i.e not unpacking and repacking) - so a resort / base big enough for min 7 days . Would prefer to be able to ski in / ski out . No lift queues ... see dates below. Would like an atmospheric town with shops / restaurants / apres activities like ice skating , ten pin bowling. So we have things to do if weather is bad - of my wife wants an afternoon potter about. Might be thinking of Christmas 2020 (could head out around 15th-16th December maybe and do ten days or 19th 20th for a week). Then tied really to EU school hols - so 13th Feb 2021 for one week and 2nd April 2021 for up to two weeks. But wanting to avoid busy times . I did look into Aspen last year - that seemed to tick a lot of boxes. Heard good and bad things about Whistler (too popular for its own good? and often gets rain in resort). Lake Louise has potential to be very cold...?

@sheffskibod, if you're going more than once and can fly from London area airports, buy a BA flightpass and solve the cost problem. Works out about £100-140 return per person for flights on any dates. The only lift queue of any significance I encountered in the Chamonix valley all week was when one lift was offline for maintenance, and the alternative had much lower capacity. I've skied half term for years (and xmas, NY and Easter) and it's never nearly as bad as the hype. Sheffield based so London airports are all a bit too far (with exception perhaps of Luton). Manchester is always the preferred option.

We just got back from a week at the Gran Risa Hotel in La Villa. https://www.granrisa.it/en/hotel-la-villa-italy/1-0.html A very good value hotel , lovely food , nice rooms , family owned . Decent enough pool and spa. Good bar too , (with fair prices) - and they do a nice lunch as well. It is literally opposite the Piz Il La gondola which takes you straight into the Alta Badia blue heaven . And it does not take long to get to Arabba or Corvara for Sella Ronda in either direction. You can ski back (red or very steep black ) virtually to the boot room. Or you can go the other way on the lovely quiet local slopes and visit Santa Croce or Kronplatz for a day out (regular and free ski bus takes 20 mins). The only downside is the town itself is a little dull... not quite as pretty as Corvara or Selva. View of the gondola station from our balcony {IMG60804_5624_left}

Just back from a tremendous week in the Dolomites (stayed in La Villa). Was pretty darn busy in places though , to the point where it got too much. Kronplatz was incredibly busy (lots of Russians ?). Could not do our planned WW1 tour as the 2 man chair (Sass de la Vegla) appeared to have broken down and there must have been 200 people queuing for it. And could not get to Cinque Torri as the taxi queue at Armentarola was ridiculous. Lots of pistes got dangerously busy lK half term but only a handful of brits around our end A lot of germans (or Austrians) , netherlands , France etc etc. Plus Carnivale / Fasching events happening (although mardi gras next week). Next year - everything seems to align in the same week . Virtually everyone is off and it is Carnivale week. And the prices obviously are very high for flights / accommodation etc So what to do ? Avoid the week entirely ? (mooting taking kids out of school but wife not happy about that option)? Go somewhere completely different (USA ? Norway?). Or suggest me somewhere likely to be quieter...?? :D

Saalbach. Nothing else needs to be said. not sure - I found the atmosphere in town a bit beery and letchy. Adverts for pole dancing clubs at the gondola stations were awkward when queuing with my daughter at Christmas. Food on mountain was a little disappointing. Ski buses were very infrequent.

We skied in Val D'isere last year at end March (flew out 31 March) and are back again for the same week this year (fly out 28 March) (Sheffield schools fixed their two weeks off at start of April regardless of when Easter actually falls). That week (27 March 2021) is off peak (French start two weeks later, bulk of UK schools the week after) - only seems to be UK private schools off (and possibly Universities broken already) https://snowheads.com/ski-forum/viewtopic.php?p=3468683 So a nice quiet week - no queues . Plenty of accommodation. Snow has always been fine - resort is at 1850 and lifts either way take you to a mid station of 2200 M or so with lifts then going further up so plenty of high altitude skiing - if lower slopes are poor you can always download. Food on and off slopes is fine if you do some research ...not to Italian price and quality though. One huge positive in Val is the regular , very efficient and free ski buses which tootle round all day. Never more than 5 mins wait. Once on the mountain - everything is lift connected. This year we are in your favourite La Villa for Feb half term (next week!). Hoping it wont be too busy...

@sheffskibod, It looks an interesting tour, but you will not have much time to actually see any of the WWI remains. If not full of snow, those around the Cinque Torre take about 1 to 2 hours to explore. To get to Cinque Torre from Pescul it may be better to get the bus to the Fedare lift and up to the Forcella Averau then ski down. I was not necessarily looking to see things - just looked like an interesting day of travel through some bits I have not seen before... Yes there is a bus from Pescul to Fedare lift on the official route... takes about 30 mins and runs every half hour or so. My only issue is finding the actual bus stops rather than wasting time - if anyone has done this tour can give a comment on how easy it is to locate the bus stops for the links between Malga Ciapela / Alleghe and then Pescul to Fedare

@sheffskibod, I would suggest booking the week in La Rosiere. On the final Saturday pack the car up, ski in Sainte Foy for the day and then start the drive home at 4pm, stopping somewhere like Dijon en route if driving all the way. NB. I think you might get cheaper day lift tickets in Sainte Foy if you buy a few days in advance. My kids also skied in La Rosiere when the youngest was 3 and now they are teens we have really enjoyed skiing the whole Espace San Bernando as a family. You will find some new lifts on the La Rosiere side and the new Montvalaisan area. Whereas La thuile lift system is stuck in a 70s timewarp ..but that keeps the crowds away :-D :sH: There has been a lot of development in the Les Eucherts area and so there are some good accommodation options for families. A new club med is also opening near the Papillon piste and I am a bit worried about the extra number of skiers that will generate. I am not sure if any new lifts are planned for next season. Thanks - all good info. Yes La Ros already has the new Alparena Hotel open now in les eucherts (which is the one we might go to - albeit rather expensive) , another hotel (Sky La Rosiere?) and two apartment blocks (Alpen Lodge and Diamont des Cimes) opening Dec 2020 AND the Club Med place... could become too busy ... :(

We did 3 consecutive trips to La Ros with Esprit. Chalet Amelia. 2014 , 15 and 16 Chalet was very tired the first year - shower leaked , bathroom cabinet door fell off. Small bedrooms, tiny bathrooms. Food was so so. But - went back since great location , and kids care was excellent (which was important at the time). The chalet was never improved at all - only got more tired (Esprit do not own any of their properties as far as I am aware). They did fix the bathroom cabinet door though - by removing it completely for the second and third trips! I think you have to expect the accommodation will be tired , and the food will be rubbish. But your kids will be happy. We did another trip to the Le Savoie in Val D'sere with Ski Total - sister company to Esprit (which they say is a 5 star hotel - its not but it is way better than any of their others). Our daughter went to high tea in the adjoining Ducs de Savoie - but it was horrid. She only went once.

Several excellent black and red runs enjoyed but a choice of terrain to suit most skiers. Vulcano (piste 26) was great and one extremely long black piste (Olympic I think?) was a proper leg burner. What piste number is that anyone? I love the dolomites but a huge fail is the inconsistent maps / slope numbers / signage etc... Vulcano has an actual sign (in your photo) saying piste 26 ? Unless that number is counting down as you proceed downhill (i.e. 26 , 25 , 24 as you get closer to bottom?) On the paper map , the runs do not have numbers or names (only the lifts appear to be numbered). https://www.dolomitisuperski.com/documents/cartine/2019-2020/5%20Val_di_Fassa_web/5%20Val_di_Fassa_web-1.jpg The 3D maps (still available on the dolomiti superski website) - says that run is 1b.... ? https://www.dolomitisuperski.com/en/Experience/Ski-areas/Val-di-Fassa/Ski-map And the newly updated phone app - which is really , really crap , has lift and slope names but no numbers. Compared to a recent visit to Saalbach - where everything is very , very clear and map boards galore at the bottom and top of nearly all lifts . That long black back to Alba is called Ciampac-Alba. Number 6 according to 3D map (but there is a blue in Pozza di Fassa with number 6 too... and a number 6 in Alta badia ... etc)

On the mountain Cascade at Fornet is excellent but the stand out favourite is Ouilette at the bottom of Madeline lift. Eidelweis in Fornet also good for lunch but a bigger budget and need to book. Peau de Vache, the same. For coffee and lunch in town, Gourmandie or Roxy café are my favourites. I’ve put on weight just thinking about this lot! Brilliant !
