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 :-)

Les Deux Alpes 2022/23

Poster: A snowHead
Supposed to be going to LDA at the start of the season. I was just browsing the website and looked at the piste map and noticed that Signal chair and Signal the piste aren’t shown at all.
Also Vallee Blanche and Diable are now shown as mixed lifts which I believe are some chairs and some gondolas on the same bits of cable.
Anyone in LDA care to comment or give a snow report please

@Honeybadgerversion2, from a LDA based ski instructor Charlotte Swift (Easiski):
Sad news today. Signal will not be opening this winter. Apparently the melting of the glacier has made it too dangerous. Many will miss it. Lovely piste.

Hi Charlotte,
Thanks for the reply. That’s a shame about Signal it was one of my favourite runs.

maybe because lack of use v running cost? Signal does not lead to anywhere & anyone who ski's down has to get the lift back up.
Melting glacier indeed. It is not going to melt when it 0c!!!

 Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

@Alastair Pink, what’s the snow like in LDA right now .We need to decide whether to travel down for opening week? Looking on the webcams the glacier looks ‘a bit rough’ and lower slopes barely covered.

I've no more idea than you since I'm not in LDA! Laughing The information I posted about Signal was from a FB post by Charlotte Swift, the LDA based ski instructor.

My advice is just to keep watching the webcams (and snow forecasts).

Sad news about Signal lift Sad

The conditions far from great, dont have to be on resort to see that, its been warmest October in history (almost) and only little snow in November (20-30 cm so far).
I was planning to drive to France, but it looks like snow condition is little bit better in Austria, so my plan to wait for end of next week, check forecast and go accordingly. Hopefully the weather improves.
Cheers

Surely, all pistes lead only to the bottom whence the only option is to get a lift up…?

And there are pics of the large crevasse towards the bottom of Signal which has made it too dangerous to ski.

How do you manage to be so poorly informed on such a wide range of subjects? It’s seriously impressive but not in a good way rolling eyes

In LDA at the moment.
First day out today and although opening is limited snow is sufficient and nice.
Glacier open but not furnicular . Fee , Vallee Blanche side and below Cretes closed.
More snow this week so I am counting myself lucky!
