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 :-)

Interestingly says that ISÉRABLES still own the plot of land the base station is on, and are refusing to sell it to TeleNendaz
Got to love Swiss valley family politics!!

Wow is Verbier just full of couloirs? First pic looks remarkably tracked, is there a lift on the other side?

@BobinCH, what’s the face in your first pic from 0705 today?

Heading to Verbier next week and trying to get an eye what is what...sadly I guess the offpiste will be tracked out by Wednesday (even assuming there’s still nice snow) but if you can recommend any quiet spots I’d appreciate it Happy

@8611, @Inboard, the picture is of the East face of Mont Gelé, one of Verbier’s main itineraries - marked and avi controlled but not pisted. There are plenty of options straight off the lift. The video is one of the more difficult to access couloirs requiring a 10 min bootpack, which due to its shady aspect will stay good for several days after snow.

The second pic is at the top of the 10 min bootpack to Rock Garden. It gives access to a beautiful powder field which is wonderful in the morning sunshine

It is the best resort in the world for couloirs. From big and wide to tight and no mistakes allowed. Nothing like it to get the adrenaline pumping IMO

Spare a thought for snowHead Steve Sparks...he had a very quiet New Year's Eve.

In Martigny hospital.

I guess in the big picture a broken elbow bone is not the worst thing, but terrible timing and very painful. Sympathy...lots of sympathy. Thanks

Get well soon Steve!

@rungsp, Thanks Janek, Martigny fireworks were great from my hospital bed and I woke up with a clear head (just a slight morphine hangover!).

Hoping to get out today and then have an extensive programme of snowshoeing planned as rehab.

And hey, I’ve not had a drink this decade!

@BobinCH, thanks! Arrived Wed. Skied Nax that afternoon, found some reasonable stuff around Tortin/ Arbi yesterday (Thu), and toured up Tete du Ferret today - some nice bits among the sastrugi...but amazing views and nicely quiet too.

Staying Le Châble, probably skiing Verbier tomorrow (Sat) so any top tips gratefully received.

Heading for Chamonix Sunday.

just returned to UK after 12 days at our place in Les Collons
The side of Etherolla has some full thickness fissures and slope creep so glad to hear L'Eteygeon is looking so good please leave something for next weekend!!
Seriously the chances of making that journey are a bit iffy
To Steve Sparks - good luck hope it was just the olecranon - rehab key and make sure you get the rotation as well as flex / extension
Good 2020 to all

Just made it (well was 13:15 at Attelas where he met his group). We got to the food hut by 10:45 but there were some loooong drag lift queues on the way back that probably added a combined 30 mins to those times. Was NY’s week bluebird day mind. The 4V’s drag lifts back are a real ball ache...

@BobinCH Wow - respect - that's very, very tight timing!

I haven't skied Etygeon for years - I remember that a guide from Fantastique telephoned a restaurant from the top of the GB drags, the restaurant owner then collected us in his car at the bottom of Etygeon, provided a long lunch and then dropped us back at Siviez which made the journey back very cilvilised!

@BobinCH, any reason why they've decided to put a piste in there. It's welcome as my legs and kness aren't always up for the itinerary


Basically to make Nendaz more joined up with the 4V - Investment in snow canons etc
The itinerary will still be there off to the left - although not this week given the poor snow cover
Next step is a proper chair back up to tracouet Very Happy
Very excitesd as a Nendaz owner


This is indeed fantastic news and somehow I’d missed that it was happening which makes it an even more pleasant surprise.

As you say a replacement for the slowest 4 man in the world and Nendaz is as sorted as it can be.

Now replacing the Greppon Blanc pomas would transform the on piste offering in the 4 Valleys - so many people seem to go to Verbier and never get to Siviez and in my opinion the Thyon sector offers some great family skiing. Tends to be a fair bit cheaper for food and drink on that side of the mountain. A lovely lunch on the terrace of the Cambuse. Fantastic.

Hi all you Verbier experts. I have a son of a friend who's parents want him to do an avalanche safety course and freeride training. He is French speaking so any recommendations for Instructor or Mountain Guide working in Verbier would be great. Please either post details here or if you prefer PM me. Looking for making contact with someone as soon as possible. Thanks in advance for the help. Very Happy Almost forgot. He is a skier since a young age, but now switched to the dark side so better if it is someone that snowboards. Very good at both.
