SNOW NEWS UPDATED 24 APRIL 2017

INTRODUCTION Monday 24th April saw very few Austrian open, following the last day of skiing for the majority on Sunday 23rd. The weather was largely sunny, and there was some nice skiing on the upper slopes in the Obergurgl region, which is where some of the best conditions remain.

AUSTRIA As the winter season nears its end, only 10/56 of our featured Austrian resorts were open for skiing on Monday 24th April. The open resorts are mainly centred on the Obergurgl region, where good skiing is available at the likes of Pitzal (146/193cm) and Kaunertal (127/194cm). Whilst at Zillertal, conditions also remain good up on the glacier at Hintertux (70/235cm), where they will shortly transition into their summer ski season on the 1st July. The weather for the coming week is a mixture of rain, and snow at higher altitudes. But with many resorts now finished for the season, it seems like there will be limited lift access to any powder.

FRANCE Sunny weather continued to dominate the skies for the remainder of open resorts on Monday 24th April. In the Tarentaise region, Val Thorens (90/140cm), Tignes (33/145cm) and Val d'Isere (35/145cm) still have a good amount of lifts spinning, and the skiing is surprisingly good for the time of year. Futher south, Les Deux Alpes (0/200cm) continues of offer some nicely groomed pistes on the glacier, but nearby its sister resort, Alpe d'Huez has now closed. From Tuesday 25th onwards, the forecast is predicting fairly heavy snow for many resorts. Chamonix (0/180cm) could receive up to 70cm by the end of the week.

SWITZERLAND Changeable weather today for our featured resorts in Switzerland. Monday 24th April started off a typical sunny spring day, however heavy cloud and snowfall is forecast to start late in the day. This morning on snow conditions were much as they have been recently, firm in the morning but transforming nicely by midday. The skiing remains great at altitude and things are expected to improve as heavy snow is forecast this week. Zermatt (0/155cm) could see well over one and half metres on snow by Thursday. Engelberg (10/260cm) is also in line for just over one metre of fresh by weeks end. Powder conditions should last into the weekend, and the touring will be excellent well into next week thanks to these late season storms. For those travelling to the Swiss Alps this week, expect cloudy snowy conditions and colder than normal temps. Layer well for changing temps and be aware of the rapidly developing avalanche problem.

ITALY Spring conditions this morning, but winter is expected this afternoon as Italy heads for powder conditions this week. Monday 24th April was a day of changing weather and snow conditions. Although most resorts have closed, those that remain open are in for a treat this week. Moderate to heavy snowfalls are broadly forecast with freezing levels dropping well below 2000m by Thursday. Cervinia (15/190cm) is likely to be the pick of the Italian resorts thanks to its easy access to high altitude terrain.
