Snow Report | 03 Feb 2016

Snow Report | 03 Feb 2016 There’s been lots of fresh snow in the Alps in the past 7 days and even more is on the way. There has been some rainfall during the wild snow storms that has damaged some lower slopes but with lots more snow on the way, the slopes will be fresh again in no time! Snow has starting falling already which is set to continue through until tomorrow then again at the weekend.

The best conditions are on the highest slopes, so if you are looking for a brilliant last minute holiday it is best to choose your resorts carefully (or speak to one of our ski experts for the best choice for your needs!)

Best of the snow in the last 4 days:

Chamonix, France – 95 cm
Grimentz, Switzerland – 60 cm
Crans Montana, Switzerland - 55 cm
La Plagne, La Rosiere and Morzine, France – 50 cm
Cervinia, Italy – 50 cm

Snowfall on Wednesday

Sunshine is set to return on Friday briefly in the Northern Alps before more snowfall over the weekend. Temperatures are forecast to cool down in the Pyrenees with hope of snow on Saturday and early next week.

There is huge snow figures forecast over the next 9 days, we are not likely to actually get this amount but it’s great to see a top up of snow coming for half term and the end of February to top up slopes for everyone venturing on a ski holiday in March.

Zermatt – 254 cm
Flaine – 244 cm
Verbier – 208 cm
Les Arcs – 204 cm
Avoriaz – 189 cm
