Snow Report | 18 Apr 2016
We’ve just returned from a glorious week in the Paradiski where we had a mix of sunshine, slush, fresh powder and some rain! The spring snow conditions were surprisingly great for this time of year in La Plagne and Les Arcs.

Just when we thought the end of season conditions couldn’t get any better, up to 50 cm of fresh snow has fallen over night in ski resorts in the Alps.

The largest dump has been at the Hintertux glacier near Mayrhofen in Austria where they have reported 50cm of fresh snow!

Here are the most recent photos from the latest dump of snow:

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!

Whistler Blackcomb extends its ski season until 30 May Whistler has averaged 1163 cm of snow all each year. The 2015/16 snow levels have just surpassed the average and currently clocks in at an impressive 1177 cm.

With a total snowfall so far this season of nearly 12 metres Whistler Blackcomb will be extending the ski season on Blackcomb Mountain until 30th May! This means skiers and snowboarders still have another 2 months of spring skiing to enjoy before winter ends.

It has been an excellent ski season in Canada; Whistler has had consistent fresh snow this season with the majority of the snowfall in December and March.

With winter showing no signs of stopping anytime soon, this could end up being the snowiest winter in the past 10 years!
