There's more snow in the Alps than in Scotland...but only just! Hopefully Santa will bring some more - there's a glimmer of hope for next Thursday but the forecast is only saying "light precipitation". 

In the meantime, there's plenty of firm piste skiing to do! Touring-wise there's some good snow around but - beware! - it's just a thin covering over rocks. Today at the Pas de Chevre it was only just skiable back down, lots of tiptoeing!

Great views from la Forclaz

The long period of dry cold is producing some fine suface hoar. Nice to look at, worrying when it gets buried by the next snowfall .
