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 :-)

New Year is busier than Christmas but it's not too bad. After the 1st, it will be empty again as the locals go back to work.

I'll be there this year.

In my experience, the New Year week is much MUCH busier than Christmas week. A lot depends on snow conditions at the other Tarantaise resorts though - if the snow is poor lower down then everyone tries to cram into ValDiz, Tignes and ValT.

@fredbob, They tend to be at home over Christmas then go skiing at New Year. New Year week is one if not the busiest week of the season. The week after is one of the quietest.

so sounds like a few busy days then should be empty
What dates do you count as new year week?
New years day falls on a Tuesday so do you think it will quieten down then or not until the following weekend?

The pistes will be busy from Sunday to Friday. New Year day, Tuesday, itself will probably be a bit quieter.

It will be freezing cold, windy, icy, dark early, and overcrowded with rude folks barging the liftlines.

But some sparkly Xmas lights and fireworks will make it all good again.
