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 :-)

@TheManOnTheBus,

If you are asking about parking in Les Contamines then you will have no problem if you are fairly early - say before 10. Even you are later you should be fine but at busy times in good weather you can see the car parks full and cars parked a long way down the road by noon. THe good news is that this is the limiting factor - get up the mountain and it seldom feels busy.
I would suggest parking at the Gorge bubble - more straightforward than the Lay one

If you travel with someone with a season or annual pass it is 14€ each way through the tunnel. Not sure if there is any reduction with a weekly MBU?


When I was there 2 or 3 weeks ago we got this discount using my 3 day pass.

skied the crochues-berard today in fantastic conditions. Sunny, snowpack holding nicely,traverse wasn't icy and perfect packed powder on the ski down. With the weather the way it is I think touring season has come early and I'm not complaining Smile

@staffsan, absolutely lovely.

Sunshine forecast or at least next 10 days. Perfect and springlike snow, bitter in the evening and overnight.

Quick question for anyone with their MBU season/annual pass benefits to hand:

My families all got annual MBU's, but they and the various benefit books/coupons are in France and I'm in UK. My daughter wants to arrange to go see friends in Morzine for a day, I don't want to promise unless we can get a free day pass. From memory we went over to Morzine a few years ago and used a coupon that came with our passes then, but the CdMB website just says '3 coupons to ski areas in the Haute Savoie'. Would someone have a quick look at their coupon card thingy and tell me if Morzine is still included, pretty please? Thx

What's bitter, weather-wise? Seen Chamonix meteo using it all the time as a description. Is it Cold? Freezing? Just below nice? Beer-outside-with-a-thin-jacket-temp?

Yep, thanks, I know I've got the little card with the 3no tear off day pass coupons, but I was just wanting confirmation from someone who's got them in their hand that they cover Morzine still. Are you near yours?

@Meltus, Thx. I'll let her know it's on.

Think she's after showing off a bit to be fair. Trouble is she skis a lot with other kids who've done 6wks++ a year for a decade, and some of them are really bloody good. The chance to ski with couple of girls from her 'new school' year who are 1wk a year and on their 4th year'ish seems to be appealing to her.

Hi there, I imagine it will still be decent. They had a good amount fall earlier this week and we enjoyed Monday-Thursday there...good on piste and off although of course softening up by Thursday. It's usually busy there on the weekend so perhaps Monday onward might be better.

Can anyone recommend me somewhere that can do a good overnight ski service? Need full base grind and re-texture etc..

Based nr Cham sud and want someone who'll actually check angles etc and service *my* skis rafter than just chuck them through the Wintersteiger on generic rental setting.

Cheers

@jma, Concept Pro will use a Wintersteiger but will set for angles etc. their Wintersteiger is very flash...

They are just behind the Midi cable car. Just ask nicely.

Thanks both. No problem with them going through a machine, it's what they need tbh, just want to know it'll get setup properly!
