Snow Snow Snow! 04 Nov 2009

Fresh snow and plenty of it has fallen over the Alps in the past few days and more is in the offing. Temperatures have dropped and will continue to drop over the next week so that the ground should hold the snow well and prevent too much melting before the next snowfall. Selva val Gardena has seen the best of the snow with 20-30cm in the resort and more than 40cm higher up the slopes. Val d’Isère has 5cm on the ground with 15cm higher up and most other French resorts are reporting similar conditions. Switzerland and Austria, who both had snow storms in October, are reporting snow back down to resort level with Lech being particularly well covered. News on the ground is that tonight snow will fall and settle to 900m.
