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 :-)

Hi alvinsu and welcome to Snowheads.

So you are basically looking for a place in Val that can look after your dog during the day when you are out skiing - is that what you are asking? You could join a Facebook group for Val d'Isere and ask on there but in all honesty I dont think you would find something and certainly not a formal place - just a person that might offer for the week but then they could change their mind or whatever. If I were you I would leave your dog at home in the UK. There IS a dog hotel down the valley but you'd need to get it there and pick it up and its quite a drive away - were talking at least an hour each way! Probably a little tricky!

Thanks Steve. Can you let me know the name of the dog hotel ? One possibility is to leave the dog during our stay. Or maybe for half of the week.

On a side note, we took a few lessons with Clare (not sure if she remembers a Chinese couple) three years ago and another few lessons with Colin at TDC. Very good memory, we will be in touch again to book some lessons this Christmas as we have a large group coming to Val.

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

chezpooch@yahoo.com - Chez Pooch near Moutiers is the name.

Ill ask Clare if she remembers you - we see a lot of names and faces so its a possibility but a Chinese couple is probably more memorable! Likewise Ill ask Colin. It'll be good to see you back here this Christmas! Enjoy.

@alvinsu, maybe you could also squeeze in a trip to the SnowHeads Pre Season Bash, early December, in Tignes? Then your husky would probably have the company of Talisker, a prominent SnowHead husky. Also the man who tags along with him, Husky Dave snowHead

PeakyB - indeed building those memories. Looking forward to another adventure next Summer! Wow you know Greece inside out! It was amazing! The Italian lakes are nice indeed! Hmmm no idea where the good value lunch in Venice was but the amazing place for lunch on the Amalfi coast was called Villa Ruffolo in a place called Ravello - google it.


Thanks...Amalfi coast on the list to return to. Consistently good food in our experience but I'll watch out for that one if visiting Ravello.
Mmmm, Greek Islands....quick tot up suggests I've visited 27. Sounds a lot, until you realise that still leaves 200 to go. snowHead

@PeakyB, that's impressive and hey, if you run out, there's always Sweden (>250,000). (Yes I looked that up and had no idea, was going to mention the Philippines)

@Scooter in Seattle, that’s remarkable! Less than 1000 of those 267000 islands of Sweden inhabited.
So many islands, so little time.

Daughter's school finishes on 17 Dec. It will be many years until I can join the early season bash.

Hi! I have been reading this forum for couple of years now but haven't posted before. I could use some advice about Val D'Isere and Tignes. As we couldn't ski last season, we hope to start this one as early as possible. Usually we come to Alps for one week in spring, but this time we hope to make two trips. We are considering Val D'Isere from the opening week, from 27.11 to 04.12 or the next week from 04.12 to 11.12. Is there big difference between those choices? How much area has been usually open from the first week? Are the links open to Tignes or should we stay in Tignes instead of Val D'Isere? And any other info we should be aware of would be appreciated.

@Kaupo, welcome to SnowHeads snowHead
I suggest you also post those questions on this thread

 And love to help out and answer questions and of course, read each other's snow reports.

@Kaupo, The links between Tignes & Val D'Isere are open from opening day. Prior to that only the Tignes glacier and runs off it are open.
Snow permitting the same runs will be open both weeks - the advantage of the second week is it gives the chance for more snow to fall.

 So if you're just off somewhere snowy come back and post a snow report of your own and we'll all love you very much

Kaupo - yes welcome to Snowheads. As PeakyB and Kenzie elude to there is not a massive difference in the weeks to be honest! First week of the season it is dead quiet and you can get the chance of free ski tests over opening weekend but the chance for the link between the two to be open will be lesser. The 2nd of those weeks can be a little busier and the snow on the law of averages will be slightly better but its much of a muchness to be honest!

Thanks for the replies. Quiet week sounds nice, more room for us. Probably we will choose the opening week. Are restaurants on the mountain also open from the beginning of the season?

I think there'll be PLENTY of room either way! Yes everything open (well mostly yes). Some hotels / bars / clubs etc not fully open but most stuff all good to go! Enjoy!

Wow - the road from the dam down to the Brevières turn-off is wavy and atrocious on the downhill side. Think it’s been chewed up in the summer\soft tarmac with road/tunnel works. If you’re heading to Tignes from Val or valley, then I’ve taken to following the cycle route up from Brev (there are traffic lights at the purification plant (under construction)) but it’s a much smoother ride.

Yes its horrendous at the moment. I believe its been caused by the dynamiting into the ground but should all get sorted before the Winter (hopefully!).
