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 :-)

@simonopt, it’s a real shame as we love the back side of that hill!

We’re heading over towards Chatel this morning - just hope everything is open over there.

Great, thanks Guys

Mont Chery is cracking isn't. Will have to wait until next year to get back up there.

Will head up to Ardent instead and take it from there. Out for a few days. Looks like it'll be pretty good. Light snow (mostly) and getting cooler.

Thank you @Ozboy, we had a great time across in Châtel - hardly anyone there! The boys played around on the speed clock at Chalet Neuf for a while.
I was a bit nervous about pistes after lunch being churned up, but there aren’t enough people here to do that and although it’s sunny, it’s pretty cold in the shade.
The odd restaurant is closed, understandably give how quiet it is, but still plenty of choice!
Today, we’re heading to Crozets. Very Happy

Well, the skiing is definitely over now. And the weather has been beautiful (until this afternoon, when it rained properly!)

Quick hike up to Nauchet (1500-1700m) this morning. Good 15-20cm of cold fresh snow lying around

They've started digging the access roads out

@polo, I had given you a row of smiley faces but they failed to come out. Looks terrific! I think my Share the Slope came from seeing it in
Stowe, VT.

Another great monday, better snow, and almost 'busy', met 3 different groups of ski tourers heading up towards Ranfoilly.....all much older than me, which is inspiring, as am feeling the effects of a long season / and ehhh weekend.

Big weekend with the World Cup XC and DH in Les Gets at the same time as the Harley Davidson bash in Morzine. Never seen such crowds in the streets, and utter chaos on the roads.
UCI event has completely taken over town, almost every street and parking lot is covered in bike tents for servicing and parts. Good atmosphere and crowds for the XC and DH events yesterday at Chavannes and today on Mont Chery. More finals tomorrow.

Then you have the constant drone of Harleys all through the evening as well, as they echo around the valley.

Some quick snaps from the phone

Tranquility has returned this week after the reported crowds of 60k people visiting Morzine / Les gets last weekend. Apparently riot police were called to disperse a crowd of 5k outside the Black Bear in the centre of Les Gets on Sat night.

There's a nice highlights vid of the UCI event still on redbull tv, about 30mins long.....but to really grasp the danger / speed of these guys, check out Pierrons head cam vid, as he flies down the front of Mont Chery (1750-1200m) in under 3 mins. Speeds of 68-69 kph, and a forest section that is 44 degrees steep.

The world cup finals are being hosted here in Sep 2020. Currently a candidate for finals in 2021 as well, but confirmed to be hosting the World Championships in 2022 (should be a 5-6 day event).
