More snow across the Alps

November 14, 2013

The last few days has seen lots more snow arrive in the Alps. With 20-30cm of fresh powder falling since the weekend. France , Switzerland and Austria all received a nice top up as the storm moved from west to east across the alpine regions.

Several of the high altitude resorts are open for skiing with some of the best early season conditions in several years.

In Austria some of the best conditions can be had in Hintertux (140cm base) and Obergurgl. The Pitztal Glacier has already seen an impressive 3 meters of snowfall this season.

In France the only main resort currently open is Tignes which has enjoyed some fresh snowfall also this week. Val Thorens looks to have excellent conditions for its planned opening in 2 weeks time.

If you want to hit the slopes for some early season action in Switzerland then you should head for Zermatt (2m base), Saas Fee or the Glacier 3000 areas.

With nice top up in all resorts this week the conditions are improving daily and looks good for the main batch of resorts opening in 2 weeks time. We will be back in a few days with details of the 2013-2014 ski season opening dates for the main Alpine ski resorts.
