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 :-)

Lovely snow today, but winds and visibility in many places (Fornet, Plaine Dranse) were appalling. We stuck to the trees and easily navigated off-piste around Lindarets, as the trees shielded us from wind Some nice, variable terrain to bomb down as there has not been enough show to erase all the bumps off-piste, but enough to make them very forgiving, tempting one to bounce through them at any speed desired!

Hoping that tonight's dump coincides with a drop in winds. Avi risk was up to 4 today, so plenty of stuff that was not skiable. Plenty of visibly swept ice and wind-blown slabs, especially in Avoriaz.

Very sorry to report a total washout today with rain to 2000m, at least on the Les Gets/Nyon side. Yesterday's powder is now slush, and the off-piste is not skiable. Lots of overnight avalanches visible as the rain has destroyed the snowpack, with some runs closed with avalanche debris on them (unblasted, which is bit scary). High lifts like Pointe de Nyon and Chamossier are closed, with visible avalanche slides all over the faces of those peaks, as the attempt to blast things.

I came home! Pistes have plenty on them, so as long as it gets cold again and they can be groomed, that will be fine. The off-piste is dead unless it drops in temp, we get good snow, and everything bonds properly.

Get those piste skis out, and wait, people!

Very grim. Approximately 35-40cm of fresh (at ardent first thing) but it's all been ruined. Rain to much higher levels than the lifts were running to today so anyone's guess where it stopped, possibly 2000m possibly the very top.

yesterday was much fun before the lifts closed early, and for sure we are going to have a very decent spring, but today very disappointing. Expecting much epicness, got soaked. less powder, more concrete.

Mt Chery nice yesterday.
Today pretty windy, though more lifts opened up towards the end of the morning.
Back home now, as it seems ti be getting worse.
Weather for the rest of the week looks great though.

Anyone know if Chaux Fleurie is closed long term, or just closed today because of the wind?

I can confirm I was on the sixth chair after it opened this morning and it’s working fine. What followed however was the sheer joy of straightlining through the untouched fluffy dry fresh powder on the piste. It’s something I’ve only experienced a couple of times in a good number of years in the PDS and I won’t forget in a hurry.

That first run took some beating but we certainly tried by heading over to Chatel for the more of the on piste goodness, followed by numerous laps of all the spots off cornebois and surrounding areas.
