Mail for help.Help!!

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 :-)

MASSIVE snowfall in the Italian Alps

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
San Domenico (near Simplon pass) on just 1400 metres altitude


Gabiet, midstation of Gressoney


Airolo (Ticino CH) had the largest snowfall.
The nearest SLF automatic measuring station received 177 cm of snow in the last 24 hours.
Here's a link to the webcam at Airolo ski area, nice to take a look tomorrow morning.

I'm not sure why Onnem's post deserved that. This part of the forum is there to allow people to post about snow conditions etc, that's what got posted. If the info might help someone decide to make a visit or not, that's what it is here for surely?

Lots of snow overnight for Dolomites. I was looking at the Arabba webcam this morning and I saw about three skiers in ten minutes! Quite sad really, all that power being used to run the lifts and nobody there to use them Sad

For some parts of the Dolomites, the season finishes this weekend. Not really renowed for late season skiing due to lack of snow generally, thus I suspect few people go this late. WIll be great this weekend for the locals though!!

Just to clarify.
I'm a regular site user, don't work in marketing or social media, don' t have any affiliation to push. But I do come across news and pics that I think are relevant to snowheads.

Mike Pow, I didn't make it to Airolo but skied a couple of weeks ago in Andermatt with a guy who did a couple of days in Airolo in a prior year, and he spoke highly of it, especially for under the radar off piste skiing. He had done it before on a day trip from Andermatt. Apparently it's about a one hour train ride from there and sometimes has much different weather patterns than Andermatt because it's south of a high mountain range.

@mr. mike, is spot on. easy to get to from andermatt, free shuttle from the train to the lift, and some lovely easy to access offpiste. interesting food on the mountain, simple lifts, chilled out vibe. small town, quiet even at the weekend, some nice hotels and restaurants.

Here's a link to a trip report to Airolo and Bivio, another unknown gem.

Oh well plan is the Aosta Refuge at 2781 on Monday and then spend the night before heading towards the Dent d'Hérens at 4,171 on the Swiss border subject to me sourcing a new sphincter Laughing

I'll let you know how I far I get but might sit the last 200m out and leave it to my more experienced mountaineering mates, and if it's too technical then the guide can only take one to the summit anyway.

Click on Tracks and then Dent Herens

Still awaiting final confirmation etc

@Mike Pow, my friend didn't comment on the prices, so can't offer insight. Nothing should be inferred from the lack of comment because the on-mountain part of skiing in the Alps is so much more reasonable than it is in the US that even Swiss prices for lifts, food and drink seem quite reasonable to us.

@Onnem, spied Bivio and that area above Savognin last week on a drive from Sedrun to St. Moritz. Even stopped for a coffee at Savognin. Both looked interesting. Looks like a veritable little ski safari could be had along that route. And one would assume that the beautifully named Cunter along that route would offer some entertainment as well. Toofy Grin

Isn't there a cuntbahn near garmisch too? Have vague memory of getting out of the car for a photo beside the sign after a few on the plane over en route to somewhere with better snow but less funny names. Or was it cockbahn?
