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 :-)

Some heavy roof tops out there and tricky viz



Probably light sleet fell in the village but here at 1300m I reckon 40cm has fallen so far (driveway estimate)

@DJL, yep shame there are so few here to share with.

Met Chris who runs the Bar Bush and had a chat about local business, he was upbeat about a feb opening and says they are surviving on the government subsidies. A few places are doing take-away with music on the terrace, but now you have to actually stand on the snow / road to consume beverages.

Not as fun as it should be

I have to say the conditions last weekend made me forget about the general situation: snow, sun, mulled wine... I can see how sleet, wind, heavy snow would make one feel miserable.

Hopefully tomorrow's dump will give way to another sunny weekend. Keen to do the Mont Caly rando with the kids!

@patrick!, miserable would be no skiing at all......but yeah despite the big snowfall last weekends conditions were better than today, while yesterday was very nice too. All change.
Looks like Friday afternoon / early Sat will be very good again.

That Mont Chery face is steep in my view....it's just relentless incline. Weird ratio for me is that if the conditions are good then I'll go max speed down something that took ages to climb up. Suppose it depends on a lot of factors, brought into sharper focus by not having lifts.

Steep Mt Chery from Mt Caly? It's a nice hike without the snow, I was hoping to get the kids snowshoeing up while I carry their planks and boots. No way I can get them to climb the SW and then S face from the village - plus the little one would be unable to ski down.

@patrick!, not as steep approaching from mont caly side, but the problem there is the car park is another popular starting spot on weekends, so the route up to the forest section was very tracked out. I found the best (untracked) snow was below the carpark.

Still snowing heavily at 1200m, heard a lot of blasting yesterday from Nyon / Chamossiere side

"Since Tuesday afternoon, snow has fallen in abundance. The instability of the snowpack is generalized.

Accidental trips: The preventive trips made this Friday were systematically positive. These are powdery-looking patches, present in all directions, with breaks of at least 40/50 cm (last snowfall), then washing away all the recent snow layer laid on the loose grains formed by the cold of early January. Even low-lying embankments start easily. The cracks spread very far as skiers pass. It should also be noted that below the altitude ridges, the wind has formed very large accumulations.

Spontaneous avalanches: With the return of the sun on Saturday morning, purges will spontaneously occur on the very steep slopes, near the rocks. Given the large quantities of snow that can be mobilized, a punctual departure could be the cause of a large avalanche. This risk decreases very markedly in the afternoon."

We'll stick to the piste, or a path following a ridge... no appetite (as in: "no aptitude" tbh) for deep, untracked snow anyway Smile

Another good day....much quieter, our tracks almost covered in from yesterday.



Took the bus for the first time ever up to Chavannes 1500m, makes sense to not leave a car there and just ski down from Nauchets to the village after a little hike.
Was surprised to see this sign inside, saying the area is closed for skiing etc.....yet they are ferrying 50 people up every 15-20mins....all day, hundreds and hundreds of people doing exactly what the sign says is not allowed Puzzled
