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 :-)

Is freeze/ thaw in ADH next week likely to be a good or bad thing?

A naive question probably but as an improving intermediate family who have only ever skiied in high cold places, will the freeze that conditions forecast for mid term be a bonus or a curse...we only ski piste?

@Harvamnia, Its a bad thing. Rock hard pistes in the morning. On the plus side, if you catch it right and follow the sun, you can catch the snow when there is a nice bit of slush on the top, but hard stuff below. It's a delight to ski and even i can get a good turn on that stuff.

It's not a good thing, but it's very common (especially somewhere south facing like Alpe d'Huez), so no need to feel hard done by Smile

As @Frosty the Snowman says, following the sun helps avoid very hard (morning) or very slushy (afternoon) slopes.

Some people like hard / icy or slushy pistes (though rarely both) - you might find you do too!

@Harvamnia, It’s far from a disaster, by mid-morning, probably around 10 – 10:30, the pistes should be very pleasant to ski on and the weather should be lovely. By late afternoon it may be quite slushy but this can be a lot of fun once you’ve got the hang of it. Given the choice I would take that over a week of flat light or a week of refrozen pistes with no real thaw.
