About

Welcome to “Tales from the Savoy”, a site dedicated to news, events, rumours and reviews to do with all things mountain related. While focussing on the Three Valleys area, encompassing Couchevel, Méribel, Mottaret, Les Menuires and Val Thorens, we will also bring news from elsewhere in the Tarentaise, the Savoie and beyond.

We will discuss the weather, both current and forecast, bringing snow reports and discussing current skiing conditions, resort and piste openings and closures in the winter, and general weather conditions during the summer.

We may ramble on a bit about anything mountain or skiing-related, reporting on news items we find vaguely interesting, gossip we think worth spreading, and various unfounded rumours. We might even talk about some of our favorite itineraries, both on skis and off, about equipment we love or hate, eating and drinking stops and more.
