Ischgl_snow_050112And the snow just keeps on coming…yesterday saw depths of up to 30cm fall across the Alps, and up to a further metre of snow is forecast to fall in the next nine days. Many resorts are reported to be dumping powder, and Courchevel and Flaine in France, and Crans Montana and Grimentz in Switzerland have had a particularly fruitful few days.

Austria is looking very promising for fresh snow over the next few days, as it receives the brunt of another storm sweeping across the Alps. Ischgl (pictured left), Zurs, St Anton and Serfaus all due to receive over a metre of snow before the week is out. For any fair-weather skiers fond of blue skies however, you may want to wait until early next week before venturing out.

Here’s our pick of the best snow conditions currently around:

France
The majority of French resorts are reporting excellent conditions on piste and varied to powder off piste, with up to 20cm due to fall in the next 24 hours. Chamonix is expected to be hit the most, yet it’s hard to differentiate between the popular resorts as they’re all reporting such great snow depths and conditions. The weather is expected to clear early next week when snow depths will comfortably be over 2 metres in many resorts.

Austria
And in Austria, the majority of resorts are also reporting excellent conditions on piste and fresh snow off piste, with some serious snow to fall in the next two to three days. The Arlberg resorts are all looking good, particularly St Anton with powder off piste and a substantial base of 3 metres. Ischgl, Galtür and Serfaus are all looking promising for plenty of new snow in the next few days.

Switzerland
Plenty of fresh snow since the start of the new year has left most Swiss resorts reporting excellent conditions on piste and varied to fresh conditions off. The storm currently blowing through the Alps will be leaving its mark on Switzerland over the next 24 hours, and Grindelwald, Klosters, Davos, Mürren and Flims are all set to receive over 30cm of fresh snow.

Italy
The current storm blowing from west to east is leaving its mark on northern Italian resorts and resorts across Italy are reporting excellent conditions. The Aosta Valley is due to receive over 20cm of snow in the next 48 hours, the Milky Way is reporting great conditions and Breuil-Cervinia is topping the charts with 270cm.
