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 :-)

@BobinCH, never done Super Bowl, it just looks lush. How long is that bootpack?


It’s about 15 mins. Good lung buster at 3000m but worth it for the fabulous bowl and pitches below the cross, and much easier left hand side of dam exit

Excellent! You sent me a copy of that back in the day. Thanks

Funny story, I asked the guy credited with the cover photo to confirm the location.... he tells me he didn’t know his photo was on the cover and it’s actually a photo of a heli-ski trip to Greenland that a client hired him for along with some guides!!!


Wtf?!
That is hilarious.
Fwiw : often wondered location of cover photo ..

Yes! I loved the little ski "pays st bernard ski areas".
They all have their unique charms and relaxed atmosphere.

On a powder day I still think Bruson is the best spot in the 4-valllees (or even the alps) ? The new gondola makes it more accessible and busier though.

Super St Bernard sadly no longer here! But can still be ski toured I guessed. Once had a 50cm powder day there 8 people on the hill. Weather was coming from the south so Verbier was blue-sky while St Bernard pass was getting pounded with new snow. Lack of crowd probably explains why they closed down though.

Champex-lac / la Fouly / Les Marecottes / Vicheres all great fun on the right day - especially for "storm" skiing Very Happy

The little princess with attitude took me for a hike. Snow was challenging to say the least but she was keen to show off one of the routes she did in FWT club

Same I think. I’ve always thought beer is cheaper in CH (6-8chfs for a pint) compared to the big French resorts. Food is probably the opposite but hey lunch is for wimps right?

Verbier was empty yesterday. Apparently Villars was rammed. Assume it’s the impact of the Magic Pass which has been snapped up by lots of our friends with kids
