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 :-)

On my bucket list is skiing the fabled Japanese powder, and me and the mrs are planning to go in Feb next year. We have not been to Japan before and we are both at the low end of powder competency, but that isn’t going to stop us having a go. I am looking for advice from seasoned Snowheads on the best way to organise a trip, where to go, where to stay, how to get there etc. Thanks in advance.

Fantastic conditions today after yesterday’s storm. Skied the telepherique couloir then headed to Courchevel Moriond (1650) to play on blues and reds, dropping into some off piste along the way. Stopped for a beer on a terrace at the St Martin 2 lift before finishing off the day with a run down Jerusalem then back down to St Martin. More snow forecast for Thursday.
Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name.

Heading to St Martin this weekend. Hopefully there will still be some snow worth skiing. Is the Gran Couloir in skiable condition?
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

I have Michelin all year tyres on my Passat estate. Got them through Black Circles (recommend them), delivered to and fitted by my local garage. Have carried chains for years and only ever used them to get out of my own village in Kent
Well, it's only polite to Register

Three valleys is big enough a ski area to spread the crowds out, and if you avoid places like the centre of Les Menuires and Val Thorens then there should not be a problem. Flights to Geneva or Lyon, and possibly Chamberry. The snow train from St Pancras will be booked out by now but you could get a Eurostar to Paris and then TGV to Moutiers. Driving will take about 10.5 hours from Calais, though the queues for the tolls can add significantly to that - we do an off motorway route via Annecy to avoid that.
After all it is free Go on u know u want to!

A string of onions around your neck and a beret on your head are not obligatory but considered polite.
Then you'll get to see more forums.

For about £450 you can buy a season ticket giving you 10 single trips. You will be using two on this trip and presumably you will use at least another two on skiing trips. You can share the tickets with a ‘friend’ e.g. other Snowhead, as long as you enter their details at the time of purchase, and you don’t need to use all 10 trips to make it a cheaper option than buying tickets for each trip.
And post your own questions...

@offpisteskiing, just wondering where these images were? Had a look at the Grand couloir on Tuesday but the ridge looked evil. Have still to ski it.
which other snowHeads love to answer.

The off - piste at the side of cote brun was good fun today, especially when the light improved. Skied a new blue run (Lory) in Val T down into the Orelle. Fantastic snow in a deserted valley; pity about the light and the Mrs ploughed into a bank of snow that she didn’t know was there. Also skied a new red (chases) towards Les Menuires, which was unfortunately slushy and Bvd Cumin was very slow. It’s now raining in St Martin so will have to see what snow has fallen higher up.
And they're a friendly bunch.

Will be in St Martin from 24th. If there are any Snowheads around it would be good to meet for a beer
You know it makes sense.

I also carry jump leads _ have never yet needed them, but a flat battery would not be the ideal start to your journey home
Otherwise you'll just go on seeing the one name:

I’ve skied the 3v for many years but have yet to ski the grande couloir, as I am put off by the ridge approach. I’m interested in any snowHeads experience of the GC, and tips for surviving the ridge :~/

We've been going to St. Martin for several years (and liked it so much we bought an apartment there). No ski lockers that I know of. Twinner is now Go Sport Montagne and is conveniently located at the bottom of the main gondola, and across the road from the big car park. There is a free ski bus that does a circuit of the villages, but can't recall if it goes to St Jean. Agree with Perty re: Jerusalem, which since last season has a blue and red option. The gondola and fast chair give good access to Meribel and Les Menuires, and only a couple of runs and a couple of lifts will get you over to Courchevel.

Just over six hours driving from Calais will get you to Lons le Saunier. You could stop off there and then drive over the Jura and down to Oyonnax, before joining the motorway towards Geneva. This route cuts off a big loop of motorway, avoids motorway tolls, and has lovely scenery.
Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name.
