Meribel very busy but Courchevel Valley seemed to have very few busy lifts. We didnt have more than a couple of minutes waiting time.
Still clear, sunny and cold. Off piste in many areas is wind packed now but still the odd powder stash. Most pistes are still superb and groomed to perfection but late in the day in shaded areas there are some hard packed spots especially on busy areas - I wouldn't call it ice though and it's still white The Folyeres run down in to La Tania is probably the best piste in the world right now and no one on it either. Report issued by Toffa on Thursday 20 December at Most pistes remaining superb with the odd hard patches in busy areas. Still some great powder to be had when it hasn't been wind swept Report issued by Toffa on Monday 17 December at To end the day down through the trees above La Tania and Morretta back home.
As good as it gets!!! Still no 3 Valleys links open due to avalanche risk and high winds. Every single piste in the whole system will be skiable on Saturday once the the snowpack stabilises or is made safe. Wet snow overnight but now freezing again and very heavy snow now falling with 2 full days right down to the valley floor to come. Sunday could see some rain in resort but snow just higher up but again turning back to snow as night falls. Looks like continuing cold next week with snow showers at the start of the week.
Up high the experts are talking of a 1m fall Go hard, but take care. Report issued by Toffa on Friday 07 December at This will guarantee all the 3 Valleys links for Saturdays opening. Looking at the forecast this could just be the start!!!!! La Tania all white once again this morning.

Report issued by Toffa on Monday 03 December at Looking at the forcast this could just be the start!!!!!

The sky is blue but there's a few thin clouds producing the finest snowflakes ever Joey of Nickski fame rightly predicted that it would snow today so is the proud winner of the 4 Euro and 26 Cent prize fund!
Report issued by JonBoy on Monday 22 October at VT all white and snow in on Thursday Report issued by Rich on Saturday 29 September at As always seems to happen there's one more sight of snow in resort before Summer really kicks in as La Tania awoke to a white covering once again this morning. This Winter rolls on and on Report issued by Toffa on Monday 28 May at We still skied through Meribel and Mottaret no down lifting required. A final beer at Bouc Blanc mid afternoon.
And hardly even freezing at night now so lower slopes really suffering over the last couple of days. Still possible to ski down to La Tania though but it looks like they've given up on the free Troike drag lift and as it's so quiet who can blame then! Still some good runs higher up and there'll be some decent skiing until we close this weekend.
Meribel Mottaret is open for another week and Val Thorens until May 8th. Report issued by Toffa on Monday 16 April at But pistes higher up fine in the morning, softening up during the day and a slush fest at the bottom especially in to Meribel and Mottaret. La Tania resort run still skiing well all the way down with only the odd marker being posted for thin patches - remarkable considering the weather!
Report issued by Toffa on Wednesday 11 April at However last night and today there has been more cloud about and the snow softened up quickly today. Maybe an inch of fresh up top this morning but soft, soft, snow by afternoon just about everywhere. Skiing down in to Mottaret was so slushy and a lot worse than the La Tania home run which still has surprisingly good cover with no bare patches down the main run. Still enjoyable skiing and boarding above m especially on North facing and steeper, less skied runs.
Currently, model runs are suggesting a storm storm system will move through the area late Christmas day, but it will likely be too warm to generate snow in the valley. Another way to answer this question is to look at climate data for the region.
La Tania Snow Report Archive. Past Three Valleys snow reports / ski reports
According to climate data provided by the National Weather Service Office in Boise , there's a 25 percent probability of having snow on the ground Christmas. These figures are generated from data observed over the past years. As you can tell from the map below, our mountain valleys have a much greater chance at a white Christmas than we do in the Treasure Valley.
On a brighter note, we have had an inch or more of snow on the ground for the past four Christmases in a row. Maybe we'll keep the white Christmas streak going this year with more snow on the ground. We'll just have to keep an eye on the computer models for now. High on the mountains, on the lawn stand trees covered with snow, which look as ice sculptures. Far away in the high mountains covered with white snow stand few green trees in the magical snowflakes among fields on a winter.
