Most French resorts had a good dump of snow over the weekend, and low temperatures mean there’s great skiing on upper and lower slopes. Meribel received a light dusting of snow on Monday, and more snow is expected in the French Alps at the end of the week. Check out the webcams at Val Thorens, Chamonix and Morzine.
Resorts in the Pyrenees had plenty of snow overnight, with Formigal reporting 50cm of fresh snow (webcams here) and Baqueira Beret 65cm.
Several Swiss resorts also had snow on Monday, including Adelboden, which reported 10cm of fresh. See the webcam here. Meanwhile, Austrian resorts are seeing light snow all week, adding up to a depth of around 25cm, though brighter conditions are expected by the weekend.
Canadian resorts received large dumps of snow last week, and powder conditions are reported to be excellent as clear skies mean great visibility in Banff, Whistler and Fernie. Chech out Whistler’s webcam here.
But the weather is cold, even for this time of year. Clear skies mean temperatures are expected to fall even further on Thursday 17 January, to around -25 degrees Celcius in resorts furthest east. Further west, there will be a mixture of sunshine and the chance of some more snow.
The US is experiencing similar conditions, with cold, generally clear weather. There is some chance of snow, though, in the Colorado resorts.
