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 :-)

Many thanks, @chocksaway
Bought it now, probably at least a few months too soon. But it looks like a great idea beautifully realized, with the profits going the right way.

@chocksaway, Daft question perhaps, but do you know what date the QdC Burns Supper is in Jan 20?

I know we usually miss it but I have a feeling we might just catch it this season?

Merci

Yep I used paypal, but sadly not on the PSB so post it will need to be. I have the old Vamos book somewhere, but my copy must be 25 years old!

@SBP, yes, Terrachu is as I remembered. About 10 minutes stroll of 1 free bus stop from Le Lac centre.

@PeakyB, Or 1 minute from the stop at Tignespace.

@GreenDay, IIRC it's normally on the 'day'. But I'll ask Sarah when I get there. Got quite a long list now! Very Happy

Looking cold and snowy again this morning Madeye-Smiley . More snow forecast over the next couple of days according to Tignes.net.

@Mark1863, Even allowing for the fact that you'll have to feed yourself, the difference in price would pay for a least a couple of weeks skiing with Snoworks.

Can anyone (chocksaway wink ) confirm when the barrier goes down (ie charges kick in) for the main Val Claret outdoor car park?
Will we need to pay from 15-17 Nov 2019? Puzzled

@mountainaddict, As @rjs, said! So i'd park in the Golf park for free, so no snow clearing!

Looks like the temperature has dropped a bit compared to the last forecast so snowy down below the Dam. Good news for all, especially for Yan at the Rosėe Blanche!!

Just need the La Daille webcam back on so we can see the iconic green tables and chairs going out.

The Bellevarde webcam is back up today so hopefully La Daille next.

Tyres are out on the Val nursery slope cam. Although the new website means I can't find a way to make the image full screen like it did yesterday

Just bought my season pass. It's always a bit of shock when you press the 'complete purchase' button but makes it so much easier to justify coming out before Christmas..... Laughing

I imagine they will have enough ski boots etc. My issue is with boot fitting experience, which should be little IMHE if it only involves the new owners.

so my completely unscientific view of webcam watching is that there is a decent early season depth up top when the gully under this lift fills in and the track opens, which appears to have just happened over the past few days!

That is what I figured. I have overcome my moral qualms.

What a difference a week makes!

Looking glorious. Blowers going full tilt on the Double M.
