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 :-)

Deffo remember a trip there with one metre many years ago. Late 90s? Had to shovel the car out and there was one car parked by the road that had been completely covered by snow pushed up by the plough

You'd better hope there's not 2 metres of snow, which would probably close all lifts and could make road access very difficult.

That will be those overly optimistic weather sites at it again. You’ll probably get a couple of inches...

Was around 60 cm forecast here near chamonix for the two days might have had 15 at most, we have been here six weeks and every fall has been far less than predicted, looks like the French are as bad as the uk for rubbish forecasting

From my perspective would give a wonderful freshen up and base for April.... if we are still allowed to visit Italy by then Sad.

Have to confess I checked my travel insurance did cover in terms of cancellation last night and have made the decision not to book the 4 private lessons (2 mornings for my daughter), plus 1 morning for me and 1 for my other daughter at the same time, as not sure that I would get the money back from that as there is normally a clause which is if you know there may be a reason why you will have to cancel when you book something it isn’t covered.... wondering if this falls into that category?

I phoned travel insurance company this morning and they don’t take that stance... though that was exactly what I said to them.

If you know of a reason “why you MAY need to cancel at time of booking” you aren’t covered.

She did helpfully suggest that I contact ski school to see what their cancellation policy under these terms are. I can see it is in their interests to offer the ability to cancel if the resort can’t be reached as without it, I am not going to pre-book. By me pre-booking they get the money into their accounts. We are in the lucky position that we can all ski without lessons. With my children doing 5 mornings of ski school during Feb, I wanted to asses how that went before deciding exactly what to book for Easter (plus was useful you spread out financial payments!)

Something like 60cm up to Wednesday evening at mid-station.

Snow depth at bottom 2.1m up to 2.9m at top.

Great but not exceptional.

Best news is light winds...

@yorkshirelad, Off to La Rosiere next week, 2 metres in the village and 3 metres on Mont Valasian, in my experience that's usual for 1st week of March, we always expect to dig the car out at least twice during the week. More snow expected for Sunday.

Metro France have 3 day snow accumulation pages buried in their site. Following is one for Avoriaz which I have bookmarked. It’s possible to tweak the URL to find a French resort near La Thule, perhaps La Rossiere.

Thanks @Ozboy, I read the BERA every day and that only gives 2 days so I was intrigued by @davidof, showing 3 days. That is very well buried as you say, I have worked it back to Tignes and its now bookmaked.
