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 :-)

Bergmeister,

We are in the UK for a week. Austria for Christmas (Seefeld and Salzburg), Berlin for 4 days and then 4 days in Switzerland before travelling to Les Arcs.

Can’t wait!

Not sure if there will be any other ski stops. I am gonna try and eek one out but my evil plan to skip the Sound of (bloody) Music tour got scarpered the other day, so not sure when I can try. I have 3 daughters, 1 is keen to find more time on the slopes, the others are not keen. Crazily they think 6 days at Les Arcs is plenty. Pffft!

@Genista, I assume that you're aware that Seefeld has some lifts. Doesn't look like a huge ski area but would probably be fun for a day. Can you not squeeze a day in there?

Anyone turning 50 during the season can have a one day Les Arcs ski pass for free:

Otherwise you'll just go on seeing the one name:
If the lifts in 2000/1950 are closed the regular free bus round to 1600 and then 1800 opens up the other side of the mountain. There is tree line skiing over on the Peissey/Vallandry side which doesnt tend to be that busy. There is a free bus from 1800 to these villages if there are lift issues.
Last year was a fab snow season and we skied to grange a few times for the novelty of it.
The updated Comborciere will be a welcome improvement and will probably increase traffic to Malgovert. I don't know how the new hotel above 1600 will impact but I seem to recall talk of a new run taking you back from the runs down from Comborciere back down to the bottom of 1950/Pre St Esprit to add to the current black run that goes under the lift.
I cant wait to back the truck and head off down. Due to work the fist ski day will be 16th Dec and it will be a joy to be back
Ordered the season passes today and the carte neige was 39 euro for the season which seemed a bargain

You can scroll back one hour at a time to 'de-mist" it. It seem to be on a pylon in the middle of the piste just above the Vagere chairlift in Arc 1800. Seems a bit overkill to me as there is already a webcam just above that location at the Mille8 area, one on the roof of the EdenArc building about 100m away and I think there is a LiveCam at the Vagere chairlift as well.

My guess is that the snowline will be high today, around 2,000m but dropping overnight so the cams should be whiter tomorrow than they will get today..

Yes, you could be right. Some flakes falling at Arc 2000 ATM, but it seems mixed with rain.

At this time of year in Les Arcs I'd much rather see very cold temperatures than fresh snow with a relatively high snowline. Freezing the ground is likely to make more of a difference to early season skiing conditions than even a large amount of snow, which could melt all too quickly.

Sorry, It is still October. I don't even get excited with snow in late November. In fact I am looking to go out in late November for a decorating (read walking) weekend and fancy a snow free resort. The flight are looking a silly price. A flight to geneva from Luton is a fraction of the train fare from Birmingham to Luton.

Great to see the Winter arriving. Managed to get up in the snow on the way home. Even had a go at putting chains on. Always good to have a practice at winter driving when nobody is around. Emergency stops and skid turns can be fun, but not when it is for real!!

News from the slopes is that the Comborciere Chair is nearly finished and so is Inversens Chair over the other side above Les Coches.

Here are the web cam links so you can check out the slopes yourselves.

The building works around Les Arcs is on going. AND in Arc 1600 the new Club Med is set to open in December.

For those staying for a holiday. The discounted ski passes pre-season sale finishes on 31 October so hurry. For season passes you have until end of November.

Yes. The snow was thigh deep at 1800m in early November, but nothing of any significance fell from then until early January. The skiing over Christmas and New Year was OK on piste, but got progressively worse as the holiday crowds turned. All the excitement in November, which was considerable, just led to a disappointing start to the season.

Yeah I remember that season. This is Celerina and Corviglia during Christmas. There was around 40cm up top that season in contrast to 120cm this last one.

Haha - I am on an 18 week break from work, I got nothing better to do! I am definitely enjoying the pretty pictures for now though. After tuning in on the weekend I saw how quick it can all appear and then disappear.

It's just starting to get warm in Australia..."they" are forecasting one of the hottest and driest summers for many years.
You guys up there think you just had a hot summer up there... come down here in a few months and you'll know you're alive.

So only 6 weeks now and I will be up there for a real winter....till then...

Last day to get the 10% discount on non season ski passes today, in my experience the booking website can get a bit 'hinky' later on in the evening so if you are still intending to book I'd do it sooner rather than later. Smile
