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 :-)

Arrived yesterday, stuck for an hr on the way up as coach snapped its chains. Perfect conditions this morning, little flat in the afternoon. Snowing from about 15:30, but slowed up now. Looks like another cracking day tomorrow.

Heard someone from our hotel was caught in an avalanche on the Champoluc side today, very fortunate that his partner kept sight and was able to dig him out. Lack of base is an issue and staying with the guides is a must IMO.

Winds likely to get up towards the end of tomorrow and could shut some lifts on Tuesday. Long, long lunch in Punta Jolanda then!

On Google Maps, there is a new beginner / kids slope shown near our accommodation - slope is labelled Edelboden. I'm a little dubious whether its actually there or not though. We weren't aware of it last year for sure. Can anyone confirm the slope is there and up and running? Here's the map link:

All the high lifts were closed today due to the wind. Excellent snow all around the lower slopes and very quiet though. Top gondola to Punta Idren has now been closed since at least Sunday (when we arrived), going to be pretty special once it does open considering the snowfall in the past few days.

@mbsnow, I suspect the wind will have stripped a lot of the fresh snow away and deposited a lot of wind pack so don't get your hopes up for a waist deep snorkel fest just yet - we'll have to see!

All open today. I didn't go on the top cable car Passo dei Salati-Idren, but the off piste around Salati 1 and Salati was still pretty good, especially after a few hours of sun to soften the wind crust.

Everything on wind hold currently. The whole village has decamped to Antagnod. Is it worth the drive up to Brusson, or is the best bet just o get another cappuccino and wait? Wind is forecast to die off a little but I'm not sure it'll be enough

I searched for a 17/18 thread but could not find one. Is anyone out in the Monterosa now or been there recently?

We were there at the end of January and the locals were groaning at the prospect of more snow. There were huge amounts of snow then, in all areas and great off piste, so I'm told. Im strictly on piste. I've been watching the forecasts and temperatures, which have stayed low, and with more snow for this weekend , I'm sure conditions will be fabulous.

After 4 bluebird days, snowed all day today, same forecast for tomorrow. The (usually wrong) forecast we've been using thinks temps will plummet and it's not exactly t-shirt weather this week. Pistes are in still in great condition though.

Hope you get good conditions when you get here.

Just had five days in Gressoney-la-Trinité. Lovely piste conditions, off piste ok. Last two days got breezy and light snow. Would highly recommend our accommodation in Staffal, le Marmotte, right next to the lifts, covered parking plus spacious and clean. Not cheap.

@moseyp - I was out there a week ago. Slopes are all in good shape, I was mainly off-piste with guides. Some superb powder around. Was lucky enough to try this... Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy
