Not a hint of snow up in the Eastern Pyrenees yet. We usually have a dusting by now. Then again, although I do love skiing, I have retired from hurtling down slopes on bits of metal/carbon/plastic.

Just booked a week in the French Alps for March 23.

I opted out of our planned Jan 2023 trip. The price was way more than last time I went.
Poor value for money, so I’m putting the funds towards (hopefully) a longer trip to the USA that year.

Depending on where you were going, looking like a wise choice. Little to no snow in a lot of the resorts right now.

Jon - hopefully the weather cooperates before March.

We normally go to La Plagne

Cover looks OK at the moment

I've certainly been there with a lot less snow

Just had to buy a new helmet for this year (Uvex in case you were wondering) I can thoroughly recommend these people at hardloop.co.uk (fulfilled from France)
Great price, fast delivery and no import taxes.
