Over in Austria, Solden had 10cm of fresh snow this week which has topped up the snow base. With the sunshine and warmer temperatures across the Alps this week, the snow base across some Austrian glacial resorts is starting to recede but as the base is so good for this time of year there is still great skiing and snowboarding to be had.
Sweden had its first major snowfall of the season this week and winter in the USA is in full swing with many skiers and snowboarders celebrating Thanksgiving on the slopes. Japan has had large dumps of early season snow this week with Niseko receiving 40cm and Grand Hirafu will be opening this weekend.
Switzerland hasn’t had much new snow this week but as resorts are snowy enough to ski on already Andermatt and Crans Montana will open this weekend and Saas Fee still has good on piste conditions and is expecting more snow over the weekend.
Many Italian resorts are opening this weekend, the best conditions are in Val Senales with 25cm bottom base and 280cm up top and Champoluc with 40cm/110cm. A light dusting is forecasted over the Italian Alps in the next 3 days which will add to the already great early season snow base.
