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 :-)

Thank you, PG. With 25 years experience of skiing this is informative but really nothing new. The vagaries of the Alpine snow fall are here for all to see. Enjoy the snow, folks.

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

Thnaks PG. I'm about to book for Val D for Christmas week - even if the pormised snow doesn't arrive I guess there'll be something to ski on. Even if not, it's a pretty enough village in which to spend Christmas (obviously everything is relative. Dave. East London). snowHead

La Toussuire in Les Sybelles seems to be doing very nicely, check out the wbe cam, drop down box on the left then gives you the camera shots available (they are actually short mpeg type clips). La T is at 1800m to 2620m
