We salute your dedication!
Hope the damage is not too bad - no need to demonstrate rock-dodging in future though...
as looking to book family for this date

Hi Andy, it snowed there today (their website snow report doesn't look like it's getting updated yet, but they sent out a Tweet of falling snow earlier). There's a fair bit more in the forecast too.
15th is still 3 weeks away, so it might all melt... ...in which case, yes, they'll turn on the cannons.
I expect our friends at Chateau d'Oz will be giving us an update before then! We'll give them a prod in a week or two if they haven't checked in by then...
They have also invested in a PistenBully SNOWsat snow depth measuring system to ensure that it gets spread out to the required depth.
I wouldn't be too concerned about the resort snow depth reports as they are single point measurements taken in places where snow is known to accumulate and when natural snow is in short supply they often add a bit on, but I would keep an eye on the temperatures.
I would look for a resort that already had some snow, the conditions at Cervinia look pretty good at the moment.
