Snow Report | 29-Dec-13 New Year Conditions

Snow Report | 29-Dec-13 New Year Conditions

This weekend saw some great new snowfall throughout Europe, making for fantastic boarding and skiing conditions.  Most resorts experienced initial heavy snowfalls, followed by light to moderate top ups throughout the following days.

In Austria, Mayrhofen saw a wonderful 15cm of fresh snow, St Anton reported a base of 80cm and Lech, a base of 65cm.   All three resorts boasted sunny bluebird skies to add to the amazing conditions.

France also saw plenty of fresh powder and clear skies this weekend.  On Sunday, 25cm fell at Morzine followed by a further top up of 5cm the following day.  Serre Chevalier also had 25cm with Tignes and Val d’Isere seeing an equally fab 20cm.

Over in Switzerland, conditions were outstanding, with Zermatt reporting a base of 135cm and Saas Fee a stunning 275cm.  Temperatures dropped and skies stayed beautiful and clear.  If you’re in Switzerland for the New Year then you’re in luck – more snow is forecast after New Years Day!

Moving on to Italy, Cerivina saw 20cm of snowfall, making its deepest snow base a total of 160cm.  Champoluc saw almost 10 cm of new powder and Madesimo saw a total of 30cm fresh snow.

There is more snow predicted over the coming week at all European resorts – great news for those off skiing in early January.  Have a Happy New Year and we leave you with a special snow report from one of the Iglu team out in the mountains!
