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 :-)

@Nick M,

There are a currently a number of motor homes in the car park on the other side of the river (next to the salle St Marc) which you can stay in up to 10 days. I don’t know if people are living in them.


Ok. Thanks will drive down and look for that today.
What's the Salle De Marc? Is that a street name, or a building, or maybe a church?

It's the great big silver community hall on the Bruson side of the river.

Thanks. Found it and it looks ideal.
Parked up there now for the night now, loads of other camper vans there too, so should be fine.

I'd never have found it myself were it not for this post though.. so, -much appreciated.

You've underplayed that with just a few words. That is a très sérieux undertaking. Those are the trails off the back of Mont Fort I look at and wonder, where the 'heck' were they going. Impressed.

Yep very quiet Xmas week so far. But could be the overcast weather/low tide snow contributing. Just snowed 25cm and Bluebird forecast for tomorrow so could get mobbed by day trippers like a few Sundays ago. Let’s see...

Final day in 4 valleys, had a blast with hip-deep powder around lac 2 lift in the morning. Chassoure-tortin itinerary finally opened today but it's already half-mogul field by noon snowHead Confused beautiful day to end the trip nonetheless.

Wasn’t busy at all on Saturday despite the conditions. Busier on Sunday, especially the queue for Lac 2 with the Chasoure-Tortin itinerary opening for the first time. Snowing again today

'Flee'? You 'flee' a tsunami, or an earthquake, bombings, or strafing by fighter 'planes. You 'pack up and leave' or perhaps 'give up on' a holiday when you realise you can get in your car and be home in 12 hours rather than be confined to a hotel room under less safe conditions. The usual journo hack clichés.

Thanks @Pamski, @kitenski, @patrick!, after a low tide start to the season it was a memorable day with the rare Euro combination of significant snow, very cold temps and low wind (at least lower down). These were all filmed just off the side of the pistes. Hopefully with this snowy NY week the itineraries will be opening up soon...

I'm very fond of the Fontonet ridge.
Another good spot is to go Right into the rather invisible valley and ridge just about as soon as you are committed to the Fontonet way down, It comes down to join the piste near the bottom (from piste skier's right).
Just be careful of the deep ditch near the piste if there has not been enough snow to properly fill it.

GVA - French side. We usually ski in Les Gets (or in les Aravis), so I was hoping to see more than Siviez next time Smile I loved hiking/cycling/eating in Verbier in summer though.

Gutting but on the other hand, the touring hours you've been putting in will put you in good stead to continue pillaging what those of us stuck in Bristol can't.
