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 :-)

Tignes in 7 weeks. Would've been a week earlier but things interviened.

PG, That's not fair!!!!! Crying or Very sad
NickW, perhaps by "anyone" you should add a degree of difficulty by saying "anyone who has to travel through a time zone to get to the snow".

maggi, well done. Espace Killy promises to be open 27 Nov so I'll second any tantrums if there's not enough snow to get you into Val D! Will be interesting to know how conditions are.

NickW, Does plastic count? It's proper dendex....

Manda, This time last year you could ski down to the resort with ease. If only it had been a bit colder, all the water that has been falling in sheets below 3000m in the Tarentaise this past week would have given us about as much snow as they've got on the other side of the Pond! rob@rar.org.uk, ise, at least the glacier should be in good nick next week (so long as it doesn't rain again). The club has had to cancel the last two days' training because of the conditions at altitude....

NickW, that's an early trip to Sauze!

We went out last year 5th - 12th december to Sauze. Hadn't snowed for a week or so but had remained cold so nice and soft due to no one using the place. The place was quite empty as well because the main operators don't start for a week or 2 later. Conditions on the web cam aren't looking that good at the moment, everything has fallen as rain Crying or Very sad , this time last year there was quite a bit of snow already. Hope conditions change for you! snowHead

PG, I'm glad to hear it, with more snow forecast this week apparently. Hope it stops soon though, I'd much rather ski on a hard piste than one covered in soft snow.

Glaciers on their own don't count because it's my thread and I make the rules up.

Plastic certainly doesn't count as it has to be a proper ski trip to a full area i.e. not just a glacier.

You also have to have traveled a reasonable distant (thks Manda). Arbitary ruling on this by yours truly so PG discounted. stanton, where are you travelling from ??

Others arbitary rules include you have to have a vin chaud or equivalent and you have to play table football at some point.

Dan, I was there same time last year and thought it was excellent, apart from those 2 crappy 2 seater chairs.

NickW, got my fingers crossed for you!

yeah the lifts are a bit of a pain but a great wide open playing field to go play in i think i'll put up with them!

What's an equivalent (I might have to tell the barman how to make one)? And can I play aerojet ice hockey instead because I am a "gurl" and that makes me (according to most men) unable to understand the rules of football Shocked

NickW, fair enough boss, your rules it is (although I suspect I'll do more 'proper' skiing next week on the glacier than I will in the rets of the season combined).

maggi:/general rule clarification

1. Gluewein (?) or vin brule are acceptable equivalents i.e. hot red wine with spices.

Anything originating in North America is going to be highly unlikely to qualify and subject to strict clarification, thus improving my chances of leading the field.

2. I'm afraid it's got to be proper table football. Not knowing the rules is no excuse. Anyway there's only one rule really: no putting the ball in crooked. Oh, and losers buy the drinks.

Also: Having lots of pints perched in precarious positions gains extra credits. Beating the usual local sharks confers god-like status and bares repeated re-telling, often lasting years.

Just spoke to someone going to Courchevel the same day that I'm off to Tignes, but his flight departs 2 hours earlier than mine. Does that bump me down the list?

But would he lose points for lack of snow.....

That's ok, I'm consoling myself with a special French cocktail as I write. A "Screaming Lizard" (2 parts green Chartreuse, 1 part Tequila, ice). I can still write as I've opnly had a couple of sips so far.
