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 :-)

@jetsnow, I was there last weekend and I was all good above 1500m.
To be honest I would be more concerned about wind strength this weekend as I might close a few areas but I am now expert.

@jetsnow, it definitely doesn't look like the best last minute weekend ever.

Of course, I could look out the window tomorrow and be completely wrong... (at least for tomorrow).

Les Houches, A few cm of fresh over a nice piste this morning. A bit sticky at the end of the afternoon, pistes still skiing nice. Lots of old snow poking trough just above Maison Neuf.

Brevent huge que this morning, top not open until noon, col cornu also having problems.

Le Tour open late, the upper chair even later.

Midi opened at 12.15! due to snow clearing!.....something we only get 50 times a year???

Skied GM in the morning for some powder which, as expected, got tracked out very quickly. Snow was lovely and soft though, with more due. Light went very flat around 11.30 so went over to Le Tour which was great. Less tracked,though a thinner layer of powder which meant you could feel the ice/crust underneath much more. Some champagne stuff off the Aiguilettes though!

All in all a lovely day Smile

75-105cm of snowfall forecasted by Saturday morning according to Chamonix Meteo. I arrive on Sunday, so please don’t track it all out before then. Excited!!! Very Happy

@coolbeanz, the rain to 1700m and possibly higher later tomorrow isn't too exciting. Perhaps a clearing in the weather is.

Either way, to get more than an hour of fresh tracks on Saturday and none thereafter some uphill effort may have to be put in. As @jbob, points out, non of this is simple.

@jbob, the 3V have had their trials & tribulations with one or two lifts this winter, but CMB just seem to keep coming up with trump cards!!

CMB are useless, their total lack of investment is coming back to haunt them. Half of the lifts in the valley want replacing and they've just not bothered. Local guides refuse to use Charamillon as it's going to break down any second.

Anyway, snow off piste on the front side of Le Tour yesterday wasn't great, heavy and hard going. Back side of Vallorcine was half ice half spring snow which was nice. Pistes were slushy as expected.

Bit of a top up tonight but I'm off to Meribel for a few days.

Maribel, where the lifts are owned by... Compagnie des Alpes! (Parent company of CdMB). Hopefully the curse doesn’t travel far!

I can confirm ... Lifts in Meribel are very good !!
And 5 year plan is going to make them even better ... too many people on slopes is a downside

For anyone interested in the skiing (this is all from an offpiste perspective) , low altitude is rubbish. Saturated snowpack which might turn into good spring snow in a couple of days sun.

High up is still exceptionally good (Saturday anyway). Toula was fine, but with a very severe entrance to the steps as per usual this season. But the Valley Noir must be the best snow in the area. Super fresh snow. The winds today may have changed that?

Snowing like billy-o in town now.

Anyone prepared to slog up to the Aiguilles Rouges cols or summits in the next day or two will find fantastic powder. My chum Mike and I broke trail up to the Col de Beugeant today. There are some avalanche factors to consider on the up and down.

We had the entire cirque to ourselves (gulp). With the recent cold snap and snow the conditions on the descent were stunning. As good as or better than January. Between shin and knee deep powder on the north facing slopes for the first 500m, gradually encountering crunchyness under about 9 inches of powder all the way down to the track at the bottom of the Berard valley.

No tracks down the Glacier Mort or Col du Belvedere, and not many coming from the Crochues Berard. So much powder to be skied before it becomes soggy in two or three days.
