Snow in Morzine


As the snow storm swept across the Swiss Alps some resorts were blessed with up to 50 cm of snowfall. Unfortunately there was limited snowfall towards the south and east of the country, so not all resorts benefited from the new snow. Top snowfall included Saas Fee had 60cm of snow, Grindelwald 50 cm and Murren and Wengen 41cm.

Between 20-30cm of snow hit a lot of ski resorts in Austria. The glaciers have already built up a good snow base, so another foot of snow being added to that is very impressive. Notable snowfalls include: 32cm at Pitzal glacier, 30 cm at Kaunertal and 20cm in Sölden.

Snow Report | 21 Nov 2015: Snow in the Alps
Friday was quite warm in the Alps so there was only rain at lower levels under 2000m, but since Saturday temperatures have dropped considerably and there is snow on lower pistes and villages.

Snow Reports | 17 Nov 2015: Huge snowfall is coming to the Alps
As freezing levels and temperatures start to drop, autumn will come to a halt and winter will finally step into play.

The Alps have already had some snowfall this season, in mid-October ski resorts received up to 50 cm of snowfall and at the end of October there was up to a foot of snow in 24 hours across many resorts. But after a dry November there hasn’t been much snowfall in the Alps.

This hasn’t stopped high altitude areas with existing snow from opening; glacier resorts in Austria have been open for weeks now including Hintertux and Stubai. Zermatt, Saas Fee, Cervinia, Kitzbuhel, Obergurgl and Tignes have selected lifts open where slope conditions are good.

Snow forecast November 2015

The forecasts are now predicting a positive outlook for the Alps from Friday 20th November as the first low-level snowfall should hit.

Weather maps are suggesting that as much as 100cm of snow could fall in places and freezing level dropping to as low as sea level in France. Some long range forecast are predicting over 200cm of snow in selected resorts, we should see lots of snowfall but we don't think that it will end up being quite this much.

Val Thorens was due to open this weekend, but to avoid the chaos of the temperamental weather predicted in a short amount of time, the resort has decided to postpone opening until 28th November. 

Next 9 days snowfall prediction

Flaine – 215 cm
Zermatt – 198 cm
Les Arcs – 195 cm
Verbier – 190 cm
Tignes & Val d’Isere – 168cm
La Plagne – 161 cm
Val Thorens – 153 cm

These ski figures were taken from the Ski Club snow reports on 17/11/2015

Here is how the weather conditions are looking:

Meanwhile, over in North America...

Snow conditions are exceptional for this time of year. In the USA, the best skiing can be found in Colorado and California, whilst in Canada conditions are most notable in Banff-Lake Louise and Mount Norquay. Due to the fantastic snowfall levels, some resorts have decided to open early so skiers and snowboarders can enjoy the powder-ific pistes.

Snow Report | 23 Sep 2015: More September Snow
With the horrendous rain in the UK and the flusters of snow in the Alps we can officially say summer is over, which marks one of our favourite times of the year - the countdown to ski season. With the first signs of the autumn weather appearing people are turning their heads away from the rain and looking towards a snowy winter.

Up to 50cm of snowfall has fallen in the Alps since Tuesday night, with the best of the snow hitting the Austrian glacier ski areas including Hintertux and Kitzsteinhorn. 

Here are our favourite photos from the early snow so far:

Snow Report | 15 Jul 2015
Summer skiing is in full swing in Europe with most of the large glacial areas open to skier and snowboarder. Here’s a brief recap of current snow conditions around the globe:


The glaciers in Tignes and Les Deux Alpes are currently open for summer skiing. It hasn’t snowed in a few weeks but because of the high altitude the bases are still in good condition. Zermatt in Switzerland and Cervinia in Italy have lifts operating, and Saas Fee is due to open this weekend. Warren Smith Ski Academy have already been out in Cervinia.

Take a look at their latest video blog from Cervinia last week:



An ‘Antarctic Vortex’ (AKA a huge dump of snow) has blasted across the Australian peaks bringing in fresh powder to most resorts. Thredbo in New South Wales has been blessed with the most snow with 25cm of freshies on Monday with Perisher getting 21cm. Over in Victoria Hotham had 11 cm of snowfall.

Check out Thredbo under a blanket of powder:

New Zealand

Resorts are having a great start to the season, with most receiving fresh snow in the last 7 days. Mont Olympus has had 40cm during the past week, with 25cm falling last Friday. All resorts have great snow bases, with many of the upper slopes well over 1m deep.

Stunning view from Turoa ski resort:

South America

Ski resorts in Chile will have an astounding start to the ski season. All resorts received 50-60cm of snowfall over the weekend before Saturday’s big opening day.

Lifts are already open in Las Lenas in Argentina after a huge 100cm dump of snowfall at the weekend. Even more snow is expected in Argentina this week for a powder-filled weekend.
