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
Avoriaz - 131cm
Megeve - 121cm

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.

Tignes & Val d’Isere topped the snow charts with 80cm of fresh snow that’ll start the snow base on lower parts of the resorts, as well as add the Grande Motte Glacier which is already open for skiing.

Val Thorens also had a notable amount of snowfall, with 60 cm ahead of it’s opening this coming weekend. The Iglu Ski team will be live from resort on Monday 30th November to report on the start of ski season in the 3 Valleys.

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.

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.
