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 :-)

Snow on the mountains and a question posted in last season's thread prompted me to think about starting one for this season.

There's snow above about 1800m. It won't stay, but it's nice to see... And I'm sure it's very welcome on the glacier!
I work on Spieljoch in the summer and it's always nice to see the guys moving the snow cannons into position... I'm not really a fan of snow cannon snow but it's a sign that winter is coming!

@SaraJ, exciting to see the early snow even if we know it will melt away quickly…..

The glacier was looking shocking on the cams and with all the other European glaciers closed this summer was there calls for Hintertux to close too? Must be some pretty big crevices to fill!

For the last few times I looked it seemed like even the T bars at the top weren't running. Probably only run 4 open to the chair back up to the top. The web site said 6km open but I can't see where that would have been unless they kept an ice track open to the Tuxerfernhaus.

Anyway it's looking much better now and we are booked for the 7-14 Jan in Mike's sports bar.

@JimboS, I had a drink in Mike’s over the summer. Very impressed by the expansion of the property and always a warm welcome (they chopped down half the orchard to build the car park but I guess that’s the price of a bigger hotel…more cars). Great place to watch the rugby too.

@SaraJ, any chat about electricity and lifts in the Valley? I assume much is generated from the hydro plant up The Valley. Any concerns?

Not really...
The concern is more about whether tourists will come. It seems that a lot of places are already pretty well booked out for the high season weeks, but low season has hardly any interest.
I suspect that will change once it starts to snow. And, if the snow is good then people will come, though with a tendency towards short (3-4 day) stays.

@SaraJ, cheers for the reply in last season thread. I had visions of it being the the Tarentaise valley and if that's the case I'd work round the drive in to avoid

My first trip to the valley coming up this winter, first week of December for a trip the Hintertux for my Level 2 instructor course. Looking forward to seeing the area, as i've wanted to visit for a while now

On the verge of booking for Dec. 17-24 in Mayrhofen - I know it's a gamble snow-wise, but what does history say about the third week of December, do we have a fair chance of good snow coverage on the pistes? Thanks!

@chenav, I think it's likely that most, if not all, of the pistes will have snow cover - whether it's good cover? That depends on the weather Toofy Grin
Hintertux is not far away. I'd be very surprised if there wasn't good snow on the glacier by then. If the snow at Mayrhofen isn't awesome then a trip to the glacier would be worth it.

Gone from 6km to 18km opening at Hintertux. Lifts on the cams seem to be running again.

Really fancy a sneaky pre-season trip!
