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 :-)

Conditions on La Grave glacier still awesome today. Also on the Pan, in dream conditions for my 2nd time there. Shame it is shutting so early just as it gets good.

Comment from a guide mate of mine on Instagram with a photo of maybe you.

"Big challenging terrain and 2 unknown skiers hitting the shortest Enfetchores weather window I have seen during my years in this little town!"

Not me sadly although it's a great photo. Enfetchores still on the wish list for next time. It was definitely a waiting game with the weather, alternating between full sun and no visibility at all.

@JackSkier, was the traverse to P2 open or the route via the Breche, was really surprised no one had taken that by the time we called it a day to avoid the ball ache of the traverses, though have to say, Chancel was way better than Vallons.

And I'm waiting for hopefully a good touring "window" Tues/Wed

Yep the traverse to P2 was put in yesterday afternoon I think, we took it around 2pm and there were quite a few tracks across.

Chancel definitely better yesterday, Vallons was truly horrible in places. Chancel was OK even today although it required a lack of care for skis lower down as lots of rocks etc about.

Looks like finally a couple of days of Spring for us, finally, and then a return to colder weather at the weekend, though I'm nippingback t the UK for four days.

Yesterday was that magic day of end of season touring and cold snow in the Combeynot sector, cloudless sky and hardly anyone around.



Today back up at the Lautaret but Trois Evaches sector, where we'll have the choice of cold or maybe Spring, we'll know when we get up there as to what we'll take.

Killington, Vermont, northeast US, still has top-to-valley riding for at least another week.

Should stay open on weekends until at least mid-May.

Opening day was back in October.

Very cold and still very windy this morning with lots of snow transport N->S. Risk of windslab at altitude. Still conditions looked good for those brave enough to risk the slabs

No sign of any let up in the below avg temps across europe in May so far. This years final warming of the polar vortex has persistent high lattitude blocking over the pole / greenland. AO has been strongly negative for about 3 weeks, and NAO is more negative now in May than at any time during this winter. Both forecast to stay negative for another week at least, meaning more low pressure and relative cold for central europe and other mid lattitudes.

https://www.cpc.ncep.noaa.gov/products/precip/CWlink/pna/nao.sprd2.gif

Comparing the temp anomaly for the first week of May last year, to the first week of May this year:
compday-r-LQbhae-nz
compday-Um-PFs-VDr-H2

And here's the ECM average pressure anomaly out to mid month.....southerly jet brings low pressure to south western europe, again passing under the northern block. Though we know how much models struggle with this set up, it looks like more of the same conditions end of next week. Snowline generally around 2000m, but dropping lower at times, esp sun-mon coming

@nozawaonsen, yep FL plunges to 1100m in the west but the showers have moved on. Disappointing lack of fresh snow below 1700m this morning. I'll have to either climb higher or accept the grim reality that the meadow skiing season here is coming to an end. Ah well, the lakes will warm up and the bike tracks will open to ease the pain of inter-ski season, aka summer Cool

Looks like a slow warm up after the next couple of days.

Still more snow at altitude, by the look of it, than during all of winter. A notable spring for snow cover across the alps, if not in Northern Europe.

They are trying to clear the high mountain passes today, but sometimes it is still better on skis



and sometimes they haven't even started.



Radstadt a couple of days ago

"A ski resort in Austria will reopen this weekend for the first time in May after unprecedented heavy snowfall.

Hochkar, located in the Austrian Alps about 150 kilometres from Vienna, had between 70 and 130 centimetres of snow last weekend."
