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 :-)
durr, I forgot...

: Mont Blanc
: Ski Bat
: March 2007
: Self catering. 8 skiers of various levels and 2 intermediate boarders.
: 1 hour east of Geneva. Very easy indeed.
: Cable cars up to high level pistes, resort runs are rare. You need to book the Aguille du Midi cable car, or hire a guide and they will do it for you.
: Okay for beginners, great for intermediates, but the 'best skiing in Europe' for advanced and expert. We met Glen Plake while there and he loves it!!
: Nothing in resort but loads on and off piste. Most pistes are above 2000m and the highest lift is over 3800m (see note below)
: The Vallee Blanche. The greatest ski run in the world!! Enough said really. But there is loads all over the valley, especially in Argenti√®re and La Tour. Take your phat skis with you.
: A traditional mountain town. Brilliant and extensive night life, plenty of shops for the 'ski to lunch' crowd and everything you need for a relaxed holiday too. Perfect all rounder. Can't fault it.
: Plenty to choose from in resort. Typical savoyard restaurants all over the place for fondu freaks. Nothing stood out as amazing but we were S/C anyway. The MBC (Micro Brasserie de Chamonix) was excellent and well worth a visit or two.
: S/C Chalet through mountainbase.com very nice indeed.
: Mt Blanc Lift pass is about ¬£160 for 6 days. A guide for the Valle Blanche is about ¬£48 each with Evolution 2 (very good).
: The best skiing i have ever done by a mile!! The Vallee Blanche is the ultimate, Argenti√®re is amazing too, but so is all of it really. It's best to hire a car to get around to the various resorts in the valley, and its worth trying it all out as there's something for everybody. Get your lift pass before you get there, we had a 2 hour queue on the first morning. But over all... 10 out of 10
