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 :-)

@ed48, me too. So, so, so, busy today more so than last week. Queues moved faster than they looked though. Nice spring skiing with a decent lunch in the middle. Possibly the busiest day of the winter. Local holidays and snow isn't good in lower resorts so higher resorts like here are far busier.

Better today than I feared. Skied with a friend, a far better skier than me, who's been away for a couple of months and wanted to get his ski legs back. We went right down to Mont de Lans at 1300m from 3200m on beautiful spring snow towards the bottom. It was so nice we did it again then followed the soft snow onto Vallée Blanche. Storms starting to blow in now, for the next couple of days. We do need that snow.

It's delivering as promised. If it keeps up for another 24 hours as forecast it will be a significant dump Very Happy Pretty windy even down here though, I hope it isn't causing too much damage higher.

Kept up most of the night. A lull atm but another 15cm forecast for 2600m. Blasting now and some repisting. I'm not going to be able to get up today but tomorrow looks awesome.

@ed48, probably less busy, just 1 zone off but the local zone.

Sun appearing above Rachas but I can also see the snow being blown off it by the wind. I think it will be carnage at the lifts at 9 after 2 very poor days. I think there'll be a lot of clearance work going on too. I'll wait a bit.

Really nice day, sunny start with a little more cloud later. I let the crowds die down and went up about 11.30. I spoke to some people who queued at Diable for over an hour earlier. Really nice new snow. The first is Pierre Grosse 3 black which hadn't been pisted or used much, the last pitch is quite steep. The 2nd is off piste on Vallée Blanche which isn't too steep (Avi L4 today) and doesn't get tracked out too quickly.

Doesn't look great today. Very flat light a bit of snow and windy. Not sure if I'll bother or not. Lot more snow due, especially Monday. Asking around last night it's expected to be much quieter than last week.

A very white scene this morning after a fair bit of overnight snow.



Snow for much of the week, I'm not sure when I'll get up.

A tragic accident here yesterday, a 78 year old killed by a snowplough in a car park RIP Sad They do tend to fly about.

Very short day today. Went up at 10.30 with no queue. There has been a lot of snow and it was deep on many pistes (a blue in the photo). That was fine in sunshine but that went at 12 and light became very flat. Snow due this afternoon.

Snow has been falling heavily for last hour or so and is due to continue all day and into the night. Forecasts are a little inconsistent but Tuesday and Wednesday look ok perhaps even sunny with snow returning Thursday and Friday. Housework day today I think.

Loads more snow overnight and allowing that it was very wet even raining down here in the morning there must be an enormous amount higher. Still snowing lightly but some chinks in the clouds now, fairly windy higher though. Blasting up the mountain, suspect it will be a little slow opening, Avi L4 today.

Hell of a lot of new snow up there. Some lifts had to be dug out and were slow opening. Hard work but nice until the sun disappeared. Its actually reappeared again but I'm back at mine now.

Why? Concern for a fellow camper/neighbour/skier who hadn't returned to his "home" for 2 days? Why is that "poo-poo"?

Because the facts in the FB post were totally incorrect.

I live here, Sunday 1st March



Not "Sunday was a whiteout" as per FB

There is also a very good local network which is very active when people or even dogs go missing. Nothing.

Convince me otherwise.

Woke this morning to blue skies and went up at 10.30, no queues.



Skied hard all day. Beautiful snow after Monday's dump and cold enough to keep it nice. Skied everywhere including down to Mont de Lans and Vallée Blanche. Light really flattened at 3 so came down at 3.45. View from lunch spot at Pano.



Snow/rain tomorrow with freezing point at 2200m. Day off I think.

It's been snowing all night and still is lightly. Forecast to stop with sunshine this morning and perhaps more cloud this afternoon. Forecast for Saturday is for wall to wall sunshine and it should be quiet. Last day of 4 weeks of french holidays today so we should be quieter from now.

Fantastic day. Sunny all day but cold with a fair bit of wind higher. There had been a small amount of new snow overnight, 1 - 2cm. Slopes were lovely and quiet. Long day for me, 10 to 4.30 so skied a lot. Nice lunch at Fée again.

@Michelle63, I'm sure you will be. No problems here.

Lovely day. I went up about 10.30 when there was still a longish queue. We fought our way over to Vallée Blanche which was lovely and quiet. Had lunch at Kanata too. Run down to Mont de Lans was nice too, see below. Moved over to the main side later which was good too but quite warm.



Snow tomorrow and I need a rest.

I hope so, just had 2 cases in my town. We could get locked down I guess. People do panic tho. The press are ridiculously irresponsible with their reporting. Cause more panic than is necessary.

Bit of snow overnight, due to continue lightly for much of the day. Rest day for me.

Quite a lot of Germans (music festival) and Serbians here this week. I believe however that the Rumanian Snow Fest due later this month is cancelled because of you know what.

Snowing again today, another day off. Friend who went up yesterday said it was pretty grim but the snow was great. Forecast is for sunshine all day tomorrow Very Happy But very warm for a couple of days, freezing point above 3000m Shocked

Anyone coming here bring your own hand gel, everywhere sold out, plenty of toilet rolls though wink I found a couple of bottles of gel hidden away in my apartment and car Very Happy No noticeable changes here atm.

Lovely day but so, so warm. Real spring snow lower. Valentine was glorious to ski back down. Diable a little less so but still nice. Looking over Thuit towards Alpe d'huez
