Can anyone suggest any good places to eat in Sierra Nevada - we came last year and are coming back end Feb as it is ideal for a weekend ski trip but from memory the food was not so good.

A DUMP for California resorts: Squaw, Kirkwood, Heavenly Valley benefited from X-mas pounding.
Mammoth Mountain in Central California has some steeps open ( Chutes with 45 degree pitches or better( wipe out drop out chutes ) access from gondola at summit 12,050 feet.
If visiting California or western Canada have a look at my site after getting your snow reports here:
"There is no off Season "
Happy Pow Holidays to all !

Have been skiing at Bareges/La Mongie since it opened last Friday. The skiing is great and conditions excellent. More snow forecast for Christmas Day. So get yourselves down here for some good skiing at great prices. Today 50% of the pistes were open - and we had the place to ourselves!

Great site; it makes my skiing holiday start before I get there! Only one complaint: the weekly round up is tough to read...have you guys never heard of paragraphs!

Just thought I'd give a write up for Sainte Foy in France. We have been there for the last two years and it is brilliant for families. Small resort but plenty of pistes for everyone. No waiting at the lifts and the lift operators are brilliant for slowing down the lifts for the kids getting on and off. Probably not a great spot for the more advanced skier unless you are going off piste and then there is plenty but not a lot of pistes for the advanced. If you want any more info just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

Just wanted to recommend Vaujany for a great family ski resort in the Alp d'Huez region. We stayed at the 5 star Oisans apartments booked through Ski Peak last year. This year we are pushing the boat out and staying in their 5 star Chalet Saskia! Can't wait.....if you want to know more try here vaujany-chalets.com

The French Pyrenees is a wonderful place to ski. Take a look at tourmalet.fr and you will see extensive skiing available to all levels of skiers.
We are expecting good snow this season. Our 2 warm cosy gites are just 30 minutes from Tourmalet, we are 5 minutes from the town of Bagneres de Bigorre. Take a look at our site www.leparede.com for excellent priced accomodation (and excellent quality) - and skiing at half the price of the Alps!

Snow ski report from United Kingdom
Can you believe it? Snow in Chamonix last week that came close to the valley. Lets hope the bad weather in Europe over the summer will mean lots of snow in the winter too.

For regional outlooks this site really is cool. I can tell you run your maps off the NWS weather models or so which is cool. You see I forecast for ALL of Southern Califonia with any type of weather. You can have a look at my work here. We do SNOW FORECASTING as well. www.ontarioweatherservice.com
We aren't as regional as you,but we are more accurate for So Cal based on the geography of our mountains here. Most resorts see MORE than you advertise. Snow Valley has near 6-10 inches from this last storm total. You have 2 inches. Have a good one. [EDITOR - Thanks Kevin. We are already aware that GFS underestimates snowfall along the Pacific Coastal States especially and are looking at alternatives - Mesoscale models certainly improve accuracy and we are hopeful that we will soon be able to provide these as alternatives. The problem, as always, is generating timely forecasts, but the latest dual Opteron machines look like the answer. Good luck with your website. Rob Davies]

Great website! The weather maps and resort information are really useful. If anyone is interested in renting a ski chalet in Isola 2000, have a look at www.chaletisola.com.

Josef Kukacka from Austria
Your site is really useful, I even had been registered its worth the money. BUT could you please consider to present Austria as a dedicated page? Right now you can see it with Germany (too small scale) or under Estern Alps (not complete, resorts like Semmering or Ötscher belong to the Eastern Alps and are not on the map)

Matt from United Kingdom
Great site! Hi I'm going to Sierra Nevada in southern Spain in the last week of March. Has anyone been this time of year? Whats the snow condition like? Feedback would be much appreciated.
Mat - it varies a lot from year to year - see the snow history pages on our Sierra Nevada page - you can see every report for the past 5 years and graphs show you the depths etc. [ed.]

Just got back from Whistler, Canada. I have never seen so much snow and the resort is excellent. Two days we woke up to 23cm of fresh powder snow. It's a 10 hour flight from the UK but if you love to ski/board then its well worth the journey for the experience. Whistler village is packed with shops, bars and restaurants and with the Canadian Dollar being so low against the pound we could not resist a bit of retail therapy too!
Don't miss such a good year in Whistler! :)

Just like to let you all know about a great little resort in Italy called Macugnaga. Discovered it last year. Not for those who want the night life, but we had a really enjoyably stay. Hardly any queues, some nice little mountain restaurants for lunching, excellent instructors. I'd say a great place for parties with kids. None of the UK tour operators go there, but its easy from Milan. Recommend Cristalo hotel - 5 mins walk to lift and ski back to front door. And there is snow there!

Rob from United Kingdom
This is a great site for sado's like me who check the conditions everyday.
I am going to Maria Alm in the Hochkonig region of Austria. I've recently bought an apartment there and this will be the first winter skiing as yet. Its also the first skiing I've done for 2 years as I missed a year due to knee reconstruction so I'm really up for this.
Should anybody be interested in renting the apartment in this beautiful region of Salzbugerland please visit www.alpineloft.co.uk
Wish I was there now! Cheers, Rob

Flinty From the UK from United Kingdom
Question?Im going skiing in Austria Ruarus Jan the 20th no snow at the moment!
the nearest resort is 17km and has snow does this mean they will at least organise some skiing?Its only are second time skiing and while I have the bug
my wife is still unsure.Have I chosen the right place to go only time will tell!
still at least it's one holiday you can do on your own(after my divorce that is)
Great site fingers crossed for snow for all! cheers Flinty
[ Editor - Flinty don't worry - it has become common for the ski season at lower Alpine resorts to kick off with a big dump of snow in the first 2 weeks of January - I suspect we will see that pattern again in 2007 - apart from 05/06, which was simply excellent from start to end, most recent years have seen late starts with dramatic improvements after New Year - indeed it can quickly go from no snow to high avalanche risk in just a few days at this time of year.]

S-F.com provides its viewers great information in a great and fun way, and for that I thank them. For those who like traveling I urge you to visit our gorgeous mountains where you can enjoy skiing next to the wilderness or even participate in snow-park competitions that are held in different resorts each year – all around Hellas.
Keep up the good work S-F team!!
