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 :-)

France's cheapest ski resort opens tomorrow

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Rafforts, near Hery en Ugine is opening tomorrow. It is almost certainly France's cheapest ski resort with an annual ski pass costing 17 euros. Yes SEVENTEEN EUROS, as the Nigerians write. A day pass for an Adult is 4.5 euros, kids (under 1Cool ski free. For that you get a bit over 300 meters of vertical.





That's even cheaper than one of our local slopes, le Barioz, which costs us 6 euros / day.

That’s also a lot cheaper than my dry slope.

l'Alpe du Grand Serre, which is quite a big ski area, had to be bailed out this week in order to open the lifts. I think they needed 160,000 euros in the short term.

They have a very snow sure ski area having moved their lifts to the current location about 30 years ago - they were near Allevard before.

Col d'Ornon and l'Alpe du Grande Serre is where we head at half term when it is too busy in the big resorts

Rencurel is another good plan but at 9 euros / day now it is a bit out of my budget

I do love these smaller places, great for touring with a motorhome. On my tick list...

Ohh that makes La Quillane (http://www.laquillane.fr/) in the eastern French Pyrenees look like a right rip-off at €21 for 100m of vertical! It has one blue piste, plus some greens.

But it's (the tiniest) part of the multi-resort Neiges Catalanes ski pass so I do wonder whether if buying the pass there you can then drive to the other much larger nearby resorts and use it...

For €30 there are some really great places in that area. Good value for money, the French Pyrenees.
