    Nice, is that the Bellecotte above La Plagne (sorta)?

    I had time for an run today. Dust on crust on South Facing slopes (Creblet, Bob), North might be better with a bit less of a crust underneath - Howling wind is going to load them up nicely though

    Snowing hard again now

    need some serious insight here. this seems to be the time to be in the alps if you like to be riding in solid snowstorms..wind or no wind. i spent the last 3 seasons in the EU and now back on the east coast of the US jonesing for good snow and euro mountains. We booked a trip a while back to fly into geneva arriving Thursday march 5. As my luck, it looks like all of the snow storms vanish and warmth comes quickly for our 10 day powder run....blame me for no snow....
    Am i seeing this right. A massive high pressure builds in late next week March 6-7 and gets balmy again there. HELP. I will pull the plug and go west instead to the rockies but really want to be in EU. PLEASE show me the snowy way!

    Hmm? models let it dump until 6th or 7th and then OK temperature and good weather.
    Seems like a good good trip to me but I don't know about your standards...

    Btw. Was fun yesterday. And 30cm+ on the parking lot. Reeeseet.

    Geez, d00d, you're making your own gloom.

    I defer to the meteological maestro subtle plague, but it looks like the storm is favoring the East. One option is heading to Bad Gastein where there's hotsprings and a ton of options, not only in Gastein, but also via a short train trip to Malnitz or Mölltaler Gletscher.

    Or go to another Austria glacier spot.

    On the other hand, just stay high ( ;-) ) at the usual despot depots like Cham, Verbier, Engleberg, Tigne/Val d'Isere or Trois Vallees. North facing aspects above 2000m will probably stay good.

    Getting back to the original point, attitude is everything. Wine, cheese, architecture, history, it's all there.

    Really sorry to hear that. Get an MRI - even if you’ve done your ACL I was still able to ski a week later with a brace. Maybe you can get away with it and wait until the end of the season if it needs treatment?

    Looks magic. We had a bit more company than you but not too much... Care required with the slabs!
