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:

Europe

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:

 

Australia

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:
