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 :-)

Thanks for the update all. Fear not for I shall summon the Zermatt snow god by performing a silly dance whilst eating toblerone and pointing at an image of the Matterhorn. Fresh snow on it's way soon for sure.

Hi there, can someone in resort (Zermatt, Cervinia or Valtournenche) kindly give an update on skiing conditions, snow levels and temps. Will be over there in a few days time :skele:.

Use the right wax for the conditions. Warm temp wax during cold conditions gives you poor glide on the flats in my experience. I’ve not tried cold temp wax during warm conditions. Similar effect? I’d be interested to know.

@under a new name, I’m looking for resorts which have plenty of steep pistes, not just a few. On solo trips I tend to board mainly on piste and more so when conditions are not favourable. Looking for challenging resorts when that scenario arises. Thanks for the feedback so far. Not heard of Meiringen @Rogerdodger, will check it out.

All roads and rail out of Disentis are closed. Routes in the direction of Chur were closed from last night. I’m stuck here until god knows when! Rail over to Andermatt has been closed for a few days now.

Cheers Bob, good info. Just checked out the bus timetable for Nendaz-Siviez. It runs every half hour and takes 20 mins. Then it’s the Tortin lift up to 2000m+. Nendaz just might be a goer!

Im thinking of a short ski trip to 4-Valleys around the 16th December. Having stayed in Verbier and Le Chable on numerous occasions, a change of valley base is appealing. So there’s Nendaz, Veysonnaz, Thyon or La Tzoumaz. But are these risky prospects early season? The higher altitude skiing is over the Verbier side. How easy is it to transfer between the valleys if some of lower pistes are closed? Advice welcome.

Just spent a couple of days in Arosa-Lenzerheide. Piste conditions good up top, slushy lower down from 11am onwards. Boarded down to resort level on the Arosa side on both days. Found it best in the am around Weisshorn and Hornli on the Arosa side then over to Lenzerheide for Rothorn in the afternoon. Going home now and it's snowing in resort.

Cheers @BobinCH. The Andermatt tourist office confirm Natschen is now closed. Given its apparent sunny aspect that's probably no surprise. So that just leaves Gemsstock. My gut feeling is that Gemsstock alone is not sufficient for a 2-day trip, considering the current conditions. Maybe Arosa or Moritz are the way to go?
And they're a friendly bunch.

@dublin2, thanks, just as I suspected. I think some of companies mentioned also add to your credit card a charge for a full tank of fuel. It's at a very high rate and suggest you can return the car empty of fuel. What gets me is that some of the well known car hire brokers promote these dubious companies and claim you can 'hire with confidence'!

I'm contemplating a similar transfer, Turin airport to Sestriere. Some of the car hire companies are offering what seems to be cheap deals, e.g. less than 30-quid for 4-days hire! Seems too good to be true. Anyone had experience of GoldCar Rentals or SicilyByCar operating out of Turin airport?

Snow conditions much better today than yesterday. Overcast, light snowfall, -15degC at Weissfluhjoch, and most importantly no grippy snow anywhere. The black no. 7 down to Davos Dorf was a delight. Forecast the same for tomorrow then it's blue sky on Monday.

Just a bit of a conditions update for anyone who's interested. After the fresh snow of yesterday/last night I thought I'd try a make first tracks this morning starting from Klosters village. Plenty of others though seemed to have the same idea. The queue at 0815 for Gotshnagrat was huge. Once up the mountain I headed over to Weissfluhjoch under blue sky, no wind and the temp around -20degC. What surprised me was that the snow was too grippy and it remained that way throughout the day - not great for trying to pick up speed for the numerous flat sections on the Klosters side. The free-ride area of Weissfluhgipel was open and there was plenty of off-piste going on. I then headed down into Davos and across to Jakobshorn. The wind was picking up a little and the cold was beginning to really bite. Again, on-piste snow was a tad grippy and some off-piste was possible. Ended the day back in Klosters, feet freezing and face numb. I hope it's warmer tomorrow!
And they're a friendly bunch.

@agibex, I'll be up the mountain tomorrow so will provide an update in the evening on conditions in the Davos-Klosters thread http://snowheads.com/ski-forum/viewtopic.php?t=128820&highlight=. Klosters village is covered in fresh stuff so I'm hopeful.
