Fantastic Feb After 40cm Falls in Europe

Date Posted: 31st Jan 2011
Category:  Les Deux Alpes News

February marks the start of the busiest two months in the Alps. Thanks to half-term and a history of good snow, pleasant sunshine and perfect pistes, February and March are as popular as New Year in the Alps. And after a mixed month of snow in January it looks like the chalet host snow dances are going to pay off.

Over the weekend cold conditions enabled the snow cannons to work their magic along with mother nature. Cervinia, on the Italian side of the Matterhorn enjoyed 35cm in 24hrs and Sauze d'Oulx boasted 40cm over the same period. After some heavy snowfall the next few days will see a light dusting across the Italian resorts with the Milky Way expecting the most snow.

North America is also enjoying great conditions at the moment. Canada leads the way with Banff and Lake Louise boasting 38cm of snow on Saturday and Fernie getting a decent 25cm top-up. This week will see another 8cm in Whistler and 5cm-10cm in Big White and Kicking Horse. As expected Colorado is where to be in the U.S.A. with Crested Butte boasting 15cm of powder and everywhere from Aspen to Telluride looking forward to 5-10cm of snow this week.

Back in Europe and to Switzerland where the slopes are looking pretty good thanks to last week's snowfall. Flims Laax, Davos, Engelberg and St. Moritz, to name a few, all had some decent snowfall and this week sees the country under a light, white blanket with up the 5cm on its way.

Over the weekend most of Austria and France benefitted from a couple of centimetres of snow and this week looks the same. Though no significant amounts are forecast quite yet, every bit of mother nature's finest will add to the tonnes of man made snow that will be hitting the big resorts in the cold weather.
