Latest snow report

Updated: 3.30pm Thursday 23 February 2017

Snow conditions in the Alps remain highly variable following several days of very mild weather.

 

There was some fresh snow above 1800-2000m in the northern and north-eastern Alps earlier in the week (mostly in Austria) but this fell as rain lower down, and today the temperature has reached the high teens in some lower Alpine valleys.

 

Not surprisingly the snow has been rather spring-like low down this week, with the best snow quality at higher altitude.

 

It will turn colder with some snow in places (especially in the northern half of the Alps) on Friday before temperatures rise again over the weekend. Another wintry spell is on the cards mid-week next week, but it may again be relatively short-lived.

 

Meanwhile, across the pond, resorts in California, Utah and Wyoming have more snow than they know what to do with!
