As the other threads in other forums have proved very popular, I thought I would try one here as well this winter. Hope people think it is worth taking part.

Update for today.

The clouds are back and if we are lucky the snow forecast for next week will come. We need it.

If you are a season skier in Les Arcs or La Plagne , or if you do at least three weeks this season. There is a great deal at the Edenski web page, finishes end of November. To save me posting all links many times. Please visit my Les Arcs Ski and Snowboard Info page on facebook where there are many links to everything you should need to find in Les Arcs. If a link is not there, pleas let me know and I will add it. All links are in the discussion section. Very easy to follow.

We're looking at Les Arcs for an option this year. Have a couple of accommodation options but am thinking we may wait until last minute to book.

Hope it snows soon!

Depending on the dates you are looking at, it might be good to wait for bargins with TO's, but the high and mid season weeks do get filled up quite quickly. If you do it yourself the you might find it cheaper, I saw that easyjet are doing some cheap flights in Jan again.

Conditions update.
Looks very bleak up there today. Not much snow below 2500m, but the weather is suppose to close in now for a few days with snow forecast so here's hoping. One month to go so we do need that base to start forming now.

Just had a quick look at all the webcams, I know, very sad. It looks like the snow line is about down to 1000m today, but very wet. Just a little bit of snow settled on the street by George's Wine Bar up in Arc 1950. It is good having the webcam pointing straight at his place. Think we need a lot more before the 11th Dec. I am SURE we will be ok.

Its been bucketing down with rain here for the last two days, if only it was falling as snow where you are.

Sure it will come.

Good news, Owner season lift passes are on line again now for Les Arcs, you can go to the Les Arcs page and buy your pass anytime. Even if you had a photo card before, you still need a new one for this season to download so have it ready. Oh well, at least you can get your pass now.

It does seem strange but for the public, you can only buy the discounted season pass on the Edenski web page through La Plagne, but it is good for both areas etc. This will now run until the end of November they say. A very good deal if you are doing 3 weeks or more in resort. If anyone has any more news about this pass please share it with us.

Ski a la carte passes are also available, gives good discount if you like to visit other places in the area.

Looks wet and snowy today, hope to see better tomorrow. Raining outside right now.

A word of warning to those getting the 'ski a la carte card insurance'. Yes the card is great and should work even better this year, but the Carrie Neige season Insurance that goes with it has changed. They have fixed the loop hole from last season so now they say the Insurance is ONLY valid when you are using the Carrie Neige card as well so I am going back to the Carte Neige that works everywhere, not just the Ski a la carte places. Thought you all needed to know this one.

Just went on the webcams, it looks yuk up there today and yes very wet even up at the top of arpette lift. Please let it get cold again soon and stop raining and start snowing again.

Been doing the webcam thing again. Not very good news. Seems like the snowline today is up about 2200m at least. And even up to 2500m looks very thin. I hope this rain turns to snow soon. So much for an early base. The rain last weekend has done its job. Very sad.
