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 :-)

Thought it might be worth starting this - we'll be in LGB late next week and (fingers firmly crossed) looks like we might get some decent skiing in for the few days we're there.
45cm at the top so far and as long as those rain/snow limit stays down there might be more this weekend.

@MazDave, well done - starting this year's thread was lost in one of my “to do” lists..
It's bloody freezing here at the moment but calm and clear. The newer snow machines in the Maroly secteur have been working overtime so piste skiing looking good for opening this weekend at LGB and Balme up at La Clusaz. Hope everyone’s had a good summer and here’s hoping for a season with as much snow as last year but with a bit less rain and more blue skies !

@MazDave, @gvj,

Hi both,
Can't believe it's that time of the year again..... Quick visit to collect our skis last weekend when the ski test was cancelled before going on to Valloire with friends. Friday lunchtime we enjoyed a beer in the sunshine outside Marcel's and on Sunday evening when we returned our skis we could barely get up the mountain it was snowing so hard! As we know, much can change in 48 hours and it looks very white at the moment. Enjoy your stay @MazDave, and see you soon @gvj,

@loatie, we’re just reading your post over coffee at the Chalet de Maroly! Claggy today. Snow soft and plentiful on the pistes. Sun tomorrow

Skiied for a couple of hours today- snowing at Chinaillon when we arrived at 10.30 - lunch in Chalet du Maroly and then a few more runs after - tricky visibility and lots of snow meant we’d had enough by 2pm so back at the hotel drying out now. Slopes were very quiet, almost deserted.

Tomorrow doesn’t look good- we’ll see what the web cams look like before making a decision in the morning. Sunday looks a bit better.

Cheers

Best I can say at present is that temperatures are due to drop and there’s currently good piste cover, also LGB piste grooming is very good. As for fresh dumps Sad .... keep those digits crossed.

We were on the slopes all day today and there was fairly good coverage everywhere we went (a very few brown patches) It was reasonably busy but no lift queues. Snow was mostly fairly soft and pretty easy going. Lack of contrast due to cloud was the main challenge.

As long as there’s not too much rain in the next day or so I suspect it’ll be ok when you arrive. Would be nice to see some snow in the forecast though...

That’s us done for this short visit - off to Paris tomorrow for Christmas

Hello again, I’m back to keep an eye out on this thread. We are over in La Clusaz Feb half term as usual.

Had a brief few hours en famille in Chinaillon today as parents + sibling & family are there for their regular 2 weeks over Xmas/New Year.
Thank goodness for snow cannons is all I can say, without them no play... Pistes firm, scrapey in places, bits of grass showing through here and there. Looks like the home run to LGB is complete still, between fields of green! Pick of the pops were the pistes off Maroly, Combe Tolar was busy and not pleasant, and the runs down the other side from top of Floria/Tolar were OK if thin - almost spring slush later this afternoon were the softness had been pushed up.

Locals tell me that LGB is in a far better state than La Clusaz (possibly with the exception of La Balme).
Reason being that LGB still have enough water resources to use for snow making.. unfortunately the droughts earlier this year forced La Clusaz to divert it’s snowmaking reserves into the town drinking water supply Sad

@Renry, haven’t been over to La Clusaz yet but hopefully the bad weather due to hit from the NW in the next 48hr should improve conditions all round.

Lovely time of year - quiet on the slopes during the week - Le Grand Bornand is very good at the moment.
