Igluski.com Latest Ski News List of ski news articles updates on Snow News thoughtout the day en-gb http://www.igluski.com 2016-04-29 Snow Report | 23 Mar 2016: Over 100cm of snow forecast!
Slope conditions and snow bases are looking excellent for this time of year, with many upper slopes in France with well over 250 cm snow base, including 350cm in Flaine, 300cm in La Rosiere and 280cm in Val Thorens.

Ski conditions are the best we’ve had all season. Since January, the Alps have seen more snow than the previous 2 seasons.

With the excellent snowfall we’ve experienced so far this March, Easter and April skiing will be exceptional, especially with even more snowfall on the way!

Snow Report | 29 Dec 2015: Snow is coming!
Santa may not have delivered us snow for Christmas but 2016 is set to drop the goods so winter can get back on track again.

We’ve been checking the snow reports daily and the coming snowfall has been changing around, but it now seems to be sticking to a light snowfall on New Year’s Eve then a heavier snowfall of well over a foot on 2nd-4th January in most ski resorts in the French and Swiss Alps

Snow forecasts are predicting up to 140cm may fall in the French Alps as temperatures drop considerably, 60-90cm in the Western Alps and 30cm in the Pyrenees. Up to 50cm may fall in the higher regions of Austria, but most resorts are forecast just between 15-30cm of snow. Snow news is varied in Italy, western resorts such as Cervinia, Courmayeur and Champoluc are forecast between 40-80cm, whereas South Tyrol resorts may only get a sprinkling of fresh snow over the next week.

Chase the pow and take a look at our last minute 2016 ski deals

Highlights for the next 9 days snow forecast include:

Chamonix - 156cm
Zermatt – 154cm
Les Deux Alpes – 149cm
Flaine – 146cm
Alpe d’Huez – 132cm

Val Thorens, France

We were in Val Thorens for opening week at the start of the month where the slopes were in good condition and there was more than enough snow for great skiing and snowboarding. As Val Thorens is the highest ski resort in Europe, the slopes are still in good condition.

View photos from our early season ski trip to Val Thorens.

Here's how it's looking in Val Thorens now:

There are poor snow conditions in places in the Southern Alps, including Italy, southern French Alps and low Austrian resorts. So if you are thinking of a last minute ski holiday in 2016, aim for the higher ski resorts or talk to one of our ski experts to discover a ski resort best suited to you.

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.

Snow in Verbier

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.
