As David says elsewhere it was reasonably ok (comparatively
speaking) above 2200 in Courchevel over last weekend, but rocky
in Val Thorens even at 3200.. Further up the Tarentaise La Plagne
is better then Les Arcs, Tignes is skiable, but it's going to be
pretty crowded whereever you go this time next week. Season pass
holders are still banned from skiing Les Arcs for the time being.

Where are you heading?
