Snow Update: Big snowfall due this weekend

Snow Update: Big snowfall due this weekend

November is shaping up to be exactly what snow hungry skiers and snowboards have been dreaming of all year with more snow falling this week. Adding to the significant base established from early October flurries, November is set to challenge last year’s impressive start to what was another record breaking season.

After missing out on much of the recent snow action, Italy came out top dog this week with over 20cm welcomed in Cevinia where 90cm of snow now rests.

France maintained the steady pace with another 10cm greeting early skiers on the glacier in Tignes, as did Austrian resorts Solden, Kaprun, Kaunertal and Pitztal, recieving up to 15cm of fresh snow.

Switzerland upper slopes currently boast up to 190cm in Zermatt and Saas Fee where 15 additional centimetres fell on Wednesday. Higher resorts such as Gstaad also had dustings of snow where skiiers are already enjoying the 70cm on the upper slopes.

The big news of the week however is just around the corner with the most significant snowfall of the season predicted for Saturday night and Sunday morning. With freezing level dropping across the Alps, several lower resorts yet to get in on the new powder are hopeful the 40cm+ predictions are delivered.

With several resorts opening next month the news shall be warmly welcomed as lifts power up out of hibernation, bars start stocking up on our favourite après choices and chalet chefs perfect their menus. Just 4 weeks to go…
