Latest snow forecast

Updated: 5.15pm Tuesday 6 December 2016

High pressure is still dominating the weather in the Alps and will continue to do so (give or take) for at least the next 10 days, possibly even for two weeks or more. The only place where snow is forecast is the north-eastern Alps (mostly Austria) later on Sunday and on Monday, but even here it will probably only be a modest fall. For the vast majority of the Alps there is absolutely no sign of any significant new snow any time soon.

 

On the positive side, all this fine weather is good for snow-making. Yes it will warm up this week, which may limit operations in some parts of the Alps (especially during the day), however, next week will see a return to cooler conditions allowing the snow-cannons to return to something like full capacity...
