    05 December 2011
    This was taken from the web cam in Les Gets today - the Grains d'Or web cam - at 16.30hrs. We clearly have snow in Les Gets!
    What was even more interesting was that on the front page of one of the main London newspapers, this morning, the leading article was talking about the lack of snow in the French Alps - it went on to say that the French were still fairly relaxed - but that 1000's people could be wasting their money - well - you can see for yourself - this panorama shot was taken from the Grains d'Or web cam at 16.30 hrs and 46 seconds today. The forecasts are saying there will be a foot of snow over the next few days - we will post pictures as this develops.

    21 November 2011
    Temperatures of below zero as from 25th November are forecast and almost a foot of snow, due to fall over three days. This looks like a good start to the season and should form a good base for the rest of the ski season.
