Half A Metre of Snowfall Expected This Weekend

Half A Metre of Snowfall Expected This Weekend

This weekend sees more snow arriving in the Alps. Yawn, I've heard it all before I hear you say. Well, that's the wrong attitude. Yes, once again it's snowing over the weekend, once again Europe is getting the best snow and once again Ski Sunday returns with a legendary race — Wengen. But this is all good news!

Alpe d'Huez continues to have an amazing season and still boasts more snow then Val d'Isere. Switzerland and Italy are set for the most snow this weekend as they attempt to catch the French Alps, while Austria is having a steady season of constant snow.

  • Avoriaz 9cm
  • Courchevel 20cm
  • Flaine 15cm
