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 :-)

Anyone out there, or planning a visit? We'll be there 12th January for a week, plus a few days in Italy. Fingers crossed for some fresh snow by then, although next week doesn't look promising

Very little snow forecast, but slopes are still holding their own and with colder temperatures on the way, who knows?

Not such a good day today, high winds closing two of the higher lifts, leading to more queues/ concentration, plus blowing a lot of snow away and revealing ice or worse below. Expect to skid a lot ... (until the weather turns) but there is still some lovely snow in many places.

Another bluebird day. Cold - It was -12c this morning. No new snow, but it's been cold. With the crowds gone the pistes have been groomed and conditions are OK considering. There are a few bare patches, a few icy patches. Forecast is for cold weather next week.

Yesterday was windy and largely sunny, the resort is quite empty but a lot of visitors bused in from Italy. At altitude the pistes are hard packed, and windblown, particularly the Chalvet side. Godrans is also patchy, but nowhere is icy really, just packed. The free ride area is crusty and cruddy.
The good news is that it has snowed overnight a bit, but it's being blown about.
Light snow forecast for the weekend.
Off to Claviere today in search of shelter.

Windy again today higher up. We headed up and over to Claviere; the narrow red link at the top was basically gravel, so new skis nicely gouged. We will take the black next time. Once lower it was very sheltered, so we did a few circuits, although South facing lifts were shut. The reds (93bis) down to the 2 mid point cafes were in excellent condition, as were pistes to the village.
Back to Montgenevre, all mid and lower pistes are fine, all higher pistes windy and packed down. The 4cm of snow was better than nothing, but it's harsh that there is good fresh snow over in the Maurienne.
Great Italian food and REAL coffee, why can't the French do the same?

I agree! the 2 mountain restaurants on the Italian side are so much better than the french ones! We always go to them for lunch and drinks. Have you tried a Bombadino? If not ask for one tomorrow

The last two days have seen temps above freezing, with cloudless skies. To be honest, skiing has been excellent considering the lack of snowfall. Around 14cm of snow is forecast for the weekend and Monday, so we may pop back next week, visibility allowing. Looks like perfect timing for you, Baps ! If you have an edge file then bring it, because the hard pistes do burr up edges by mid afternoon.
Unfortunately, bombardinio wouldn't agree with me, but we found the cellar bar La Touremente in Rue de l'Eglise to be superb, if a bit dear. Mauritzio, the owner, makes incredible cocktails, free eats before 9pm, and Corsican chesnut draught beer.

We got up early for once, as snow was forcast this afternoon. Piste conditions were really good in the Chalvet sector, so we did a few laps and headed up and over to Italy for coffee. A colder night meant the pistes weren't great there, so we headed back to Monty, and did most of it again, except Gondrans, which is a bit thin.
They have snow making now right to the top of Chalvet and L'Aigle, which has really improved things in times of low snow.
Visibility closed in about 2.30, and there has been steady, light snow for a couple of hours....tomorrow will be a cracker, now we've got our ski legs

We are popping back on Monday, but found a crowded bluebird Friday caused the manmade snow surface to degrade quickly. Now in Bardoneccia where most slopes are bare, and remaining ones not worth going out on

Sorry to hear conditions haven’t been brilliant cstreat. We are going to Monty for half term (16 Feb) and starting to worry! Still nothing we can do about it. Our son will be skiing in Austria while we are there - jealous of his snow right now.

Piste slopes in Monty are excellent at the moment well surprised to be honest as no real snow for 5 weeks! Lovely and sunny. Italian side not as good but French side is great. No off piste really. Piste management have to be applauded to keep them in such good shape.
