Snow Report | 26 Aug 2018: First snow of the season

As it begins to feel like summer is coming to a close in the UK, winter delivered an amazing treat of over a foot of fresh snow in the Alps this weekend. This is the first significant snowfall since last winter came to a close and there are reports of up to 50 cm of snow falling on glaciers in Austria!

Austria and Italy were the lucky countries to receive the bulk of the fresh snowfall with the largest amounts so far at Stubai, Hintertux (near Mayrhofen), Kitzsteinhorn (Near Kaprun) and Pitztal glacier. Regions of France and Switzerland received just a dusting of snow compared to their snowy neighbours but more snow is expected to fall into Monday morning. Are you excited for the ski season yet?
