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 :-)

Any recommendations of evening places to eat around La Clusaz......possibly a little off the beaten track as we are mobile......must also be able to provide more than chicken nuggets/steak hache for kids? I've eaten in the town last year and wasn't too impressed so wonder if you get more bang for your buck a little further afield?

I’m finding this extended spell of warm weather a little strange. I have encountered the odd mild day (we normally ski early Feb) but today we skied from first lift to lunch, sat in the sun for lunch then back to the chalet (busy busy) sat for most of the afternoon on the balcony , had to come in as I feel I’ve had too much sun. Just not used to this on a ski holiday !

I’m not sure I will get many agreeing but I think I prefer it cold

Actually looking forward to the temperature drop for night ski

I have a question for the folks who know La Clusaz well, or indeed any of the surrounding resorts. What are conditions usually like for the 2nd half or March? Do any of the resorts hold their snow better than others? Is skiing down to resort level still ok at this time of year?

Does anybody have any experience of using the lockers at the lift station in LGB?
https://en.legrandbornand.com/ski-lockers.html

It says they fit 4-5 pairs of skis but I'm not sure if this includes space for boots. The fact it says that the lockers are heated suggests that would be for the benefit of boots?
