Walking In A Winter Wonderland

Date Posted: 22nd Dec 2011
Category:  Snow News

Sleigh bells ringing, are you listening,
In the lane, snow is glistening,
A beautiful sight,
We're happy tonight,
Walking In A Winter Wonderland.

Christmas is around the corner, and the snow is still falling from Alpe d'Huez to Zermatt. The Alps are set for a sunny day, filled with blues skies and Christmas spirit, the last two weeks of snowfall will make for a truly glistening winter wonderland.

All our favourite resorts in France, so Val d'Isere, Meribel, Courchevel, Les Arcs and La Plagne, are covered in white stuff and the forecast for the next five days is sunshine, sunshine and more sunshine. There is also a sneaky little 2cm of snow, along with extra cold temperatures to keep the resorts looking at their most beautiful best.

Heading to Austria and it will be snowing, I suppose that's rather fitting as most of our Christmas traditions — think Santa and advent calendars— come from the German speaking parts of Europe. St. Anton is set for 25cm of snow, of which 21cm is expected today. There is also good snowfall expected in Lech and Ischgl with 26cm forecast before Christmas day.

Switzerland is also set for a sunny Christmas day, which will be a pleasant piece of news for locals in resorts like Verbier, where there has been too much snow. The resort is currently only partly open, and children are being advised to play indoors due to the level of snow on trees and roofs. The resort's staff are working like mad to clear as much snow as possible, to ensure a safe, enjoyable holiday. With a bluebird powder day, on top of 2m of fresh snow on offer for Christmas day, anyone lucky enough to be in Verbier won't need anything else for Christmas!

Heading across the Atlantic and the snow has returned once again. Following an almost record breaking November and early December, Whistler is set for half a metre of snow over the weekend, with light snow expected in Banff and Colorado.

So, as Noddy Holder would say:

So here it is merry Christmas,
Everybody's having fun.

The Snowman
