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 :-)

Serre Chevalier Snow Report 2018/2019-and useful links

 Poster: A snowHead

@RetroBod, it's not a classic Retour d'Est looking at the charts, but there is a very active low pressure system for a brief period late Sunday into Monday (all of 10cm ? ) however you'd then expect to see more snow in the Queyras / Milky Way which is not the case.

It's Wed / Thurs currently that looks more interesting (depending on what forecast you're looking at)*, and there is a definite split between here and La Grave, with LG almost double but still too far out to be sure.

Have to say pistes are still in great condition, and so empty so you can really let the skis run and we clocked up just over 70km going from Monetier to Briancon and back, so a 100km could be easily achievable with a few extra runs and some doubling up of runs thrown into the mix Toofy Grin

Ok you lovely snowheads. Where should we go tomorrow? We're in Monetier and have done 3 days on the surprisingly good pistes in Serre Chevalier, today had a nice day in Puy St Vincent. Wonder what's our best bet for our final 2 days (we've got the full lift pass and a car). Any advice??

We had a good day in montgenevre which seemed to have had a tiny sprinkling of fresh snow. Intrigued by alpe de grand Serre suggestion Weathercam. Did they have fresh snow there? Couldn't figure it out. We thought we might head to alpe D'huez tomorrow but with wind howling on lauteret think we'll stay in Serre Chevalier for our last day tomorrow. Cold toes this week but bright blue skies...

Great week of skiing, you have to pick your runs but there is plenty of good piste skiing to be had. Yesterday was tricky with the wind scouring the softer snow off anything above mid station. Mornings are best but hopefully forecast snow will help things out a bit. They really have done a good job maintaining the pistes!

More or less first lifts and first tracks everywhere we skied, though had to race past two ESF instructors who were doing our ridge hike with around 20 or so snowboarders in tow on the final run.

Snow was a tad wind blown off the ridge as you can see Laughing

Good skiing today with Weathercam in the Monetier sector, the wind got up fairly early, closing a few lifts, but we managed to score several sweet runs in conditions varying from wind crust to boot-deep pow (and a hidden tree stump which I found Mad ) Around 10-15cm fell overnight which has helped the pistes a lot and started the job of filling the off-piste as well Very Happy

This week we've had a couple of snowfalls that have freshened up the slopes with around 10-15 at altitude, the off-piste however is still rather sketchy as more or less straight after the snow the wind has picked up to crazy levels, and the best of the off-piste is well down off the ridges almost at tree-level.

As I type this it is bonkers windy as you can see, with most of the altitude lifts closed.



All eyes are now focused on what the Snow Gods might deliver and it's finally good to see that all the models are more or less in agreement for Thursday into Friday.

Hopefully, I'll be out with the tape measure on the bird table with at least 30cms end of play Friday, unless of course, the wind returns.

Don't forget we have a Webcam on the bird table/patio so you can watch the snow creep up.

Snowing well here, 30-50cm forecast tonight/tomorrow morning, La Grave due to remain closed due to Avi risk 5, may be the same here too, if not, some real careful inter-piste is on the cards........

Looking good today. Heading to Serre Chevalier for the first time on the 9th of March. I started looking at webcams/snow forecasts and reading this thread far too early which I know is always a mistake.

Hopefully you will get another good top up or two through February and don't have any more snow droughts.

@KenX, think earlier was slightly more than boot deep, just that snow was a tad heavy and just needed it to be steeper.

Secret piste had this to myself for three runs
