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 :-)

eblunt, as colleagues on the Weather Thread frequently mention: the weather forecasters can tell us that snow is likely to fall, but the actual amount is very hit-and-miss.
1 metre would be lovely, but i'm not raising my hopes.

Snow-forecast giving 1 metre of snow to fall over Sat/Sun/Mon

For 2250 (mid-station) Fri-Mon adds up to 88cm and at 1250 (Montchavin) 38cm

That would be fantastic for those out next week and gives me hope for the week starting 22nd when I'm out.

As long as the temps stay down of course...

@Layne, I’m guessing you are using Snow-Forecast for these figures? I’ve aleays found the website pretty good and accurate especially for 48 hours. But anything other than that take with a pinch of salt. Yes it will snow, but let’s be mindful of cm amounts.

Correct.

But... the other guy said "1 metre" so I thought I'd put out something more specific...

And... it's all good as far as I'm concerned... I've been through the lean years wink Very Happy snowHead

Yes, still pretty bare down at 1300-1600m but hopefully that will get sorted over the weekend.

Rain overnight turning to a good dollop of snow on Sunday forecast for 1250m.

Combined with low freezing levels, should create a good base for season opening.

slightly disappointing dump over the weekend after all the hype, but don't get me wrong its all welcome, it looks like 25cm's max at 2000m, more up high and a dusting in the villages. Is anyone on the round that can give an accurate update?

Y'know that great archive of old LP piste maps on the Perso site ?

Does anyone know if there are similar piste map archives for other resorts ? eg 3 Vallees


EDIT - found some

it looks there are some skiers going out in Plagne Centre

And there are tracks down from the top of Becoin - hitched a ride on PisteBasher? - surely not walked up . . .

@Jonpim, its not a long walk to Becoin, just take the telemetro from centre to Aime 2000 and a its a short walk or skin. When the snow is good you will always find tracks!

Good point @Jonpim, its still not far - Becoin has a 350m gain so can be skinned in well under an hour if you start in Centre
