Snow, Snow And More Snow

Snow, Snow And More Snow

With the season getting closer by the day it's great news that next week will see a substantial weather front coming in loaded with snow. There are several resorts expecting upwards of half a metre of snow over the next week and many could boast a metre of snow in resort by the beginning of December!

France will be crazy snowy next week. The big resorts are all expecting good amounts of snow, especially for November, and some of the lesser known resorts are set for some pretty big dumps — Risoul & Vars are forecast over 60cm! The snow is expected to arrive Monday night and fall continually until Thursday. With temperatures as low a -20° expected the following weekend, that's a great foundation for a base.

  • Alpe d'Huez 74cm
  • Chamrousse 70cm
  • Courchevel 40cm
  • Les Arcs 39cm
  • Les Deux Alps 75cm
  • Meribel 45cm
  • Serre Chevalier 57cm
  • Tignes 44cm
  • Val d'Isere 46cm
  • Val Thorens 58cm

Italy is looking even snowier than France for next week with several resorts boasting around 1m of snow! Italy is looking like it will enjoy two heavy days of snowfall on Tuesday and Wednesday, then continuous snow until the end of the week.

  • Arabba 68cm
  • Cervinia 94cm
  • Gressoney 106cm
  • Livigno 46cm
  • Macugnaga 96cm
  • Madonna di Campiglio 64cm
  • Passo Tonale 60cm
  • Sestriere 50cm

Switzerland is expecting mixed levels of snow, with some resorts expecting around 30cm while others could boast over a metre of the white stuff. By next weekend anywhere that wasn't snow-covered in Switzerland surely will be.

  • Crans Montana 53cm
  • Davos 31cm
  • Grimentz 74cm
  • Saas Fee 109cm
  • St. Moritz 50cm
  • Verbier 48cm
  • Wengen 38cm
  • Zermatt 106cm

Austria is also set for plenty of snow next week. The figures may not be as impressive, but with super cold temperatures and snow cannons in full flow, the main resorts will be building up a good base with this heavy dusting on its way.

  • Ischgl 25cm
  • Kitzbuhel 32cm
  • Mayrhofen 29cm
  • Lech 24cm
  • Obergurgl 37cm
  • Saalbach 34cm
  • St. Anton 25cm

North America is in for a mixed bag of weather next week too, with Tahoe boasting the best snow, followed by British Columbia — though Whistler is set for the largest dump at nearly a metre of pow.

  • Banff 12cm
  • Fernie 15cm
  • Heavenly 60cm
  • Jackson Hole 17cm
  • Kicking Horse 56cm
  • Kimberely 29cm
  • Mammoth 61cm
  • Revelstoke 24cm
  • Squaw Valley 52cm
  • Whistler 97cm
