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 :-)

Was really looking forward to it @Peter S Sad. As you can see above we do it most years (the years missing we went first week of April rather than 2nd to 3rd week).

Ok moved on to 22nd April now

22nd April 2014. Moody selfie Cool


22nd April 2015 skiing with a friend. Bizarrely she'd never skied this piste before even though her boyfriend (now husband) is an ESF moniteur. Usually mogulled it had been pisted so it was as easy as it gets. Some leg pulling with her partner of course Laughing


22nd April 2016. I'd been going over the jump every day and every photograph was pathetic. This was the least pathetic rolling eyes


22nd April 2017. Took a day off and went hiking in the Chartreuse, La Pinéa. davidof territory.

April 22nd 2018. The snow Park was still looking good. I don't think I hit it Laughing


Last year I was in Nice so I won't post any Laughing

Hi Nicky I feel your pain. Sad
Tomorrow would have been the start of our annual pilgrimage to Chamonix. Sometimes we go even later in May. Last year we had fabulous powder skiing and could sit out in the sun at the bottom of the run in Argentierre. It’s always a great time of year to ski. looking at the Glencoe webcam I can see how good the skiing there would have been this year.

23rd April 2015. FB told me I "As I'm 56 and today was my 56th skiing day this winter target was 56km skiing and try for 10000m vertical. Smashed it with 68.5/11000 Just 1 photo



23rd April 2017 very quiet on the glacier



Didn't ski last year that day. Did in 2014, 16 and 18 I think but took no photos.

2016 was good, but it was all very new to me back then, did my first ever mini-hike on May 2nd. But unlike Kitenski I won't post stuff from the future Very Happy

April 23rd 2016 was the start of a 10day weather event looking back. We get northern blocking in spring most years, as it's much more likely to happen once the Dec-Feb westerlies slow down.
On this occasion, high pressure extended up towards Greenland, pulling a northerly down towards the alps. The low pressure system then got stuck in a pattern and just spun around the British Isles until early May, bringing a lot of snow to the alps at altitude, and 30-40cm down to 1500m by month end in the NW.

I think that was taken on the Thursday of that week, the day after I left as I had to get back to London for a meeting. The day of the first snowHeads race IIRC.

So now, same offspring, same day 10 years later. Nicked mum's skis and heading up Le Tour after me (had to get her her own Whitedot's this season). You'll observe the ski length to height ratio has shifted over the 10 years.

Lyngen 24th April 2007 think it was either my 3rd or 4th trip up there.

Any location where the mountains drop down to the water's edge is magical let alone skiing there and made all the better by accessing it on a boat.
