Latest snow forecast

Updated: 9.30am Friday 1 April 2022

A major storm is set to bring significant snow to most parts of the Alps over the next 48hrs or so. This storm is forming over the Gulf of Genoa but is drawing in increasingly cold air from the north/north-east, meaning that snow will settle to very low levels in the northern half of the Alps this weekend.

 

With the centre of the storm so close to the Alps, it is very difficult to say exactly where the most snow will fall though just about all parts of the Alps are in with a chance of seeing some significant accumulations by the end of the weekend, with typically 20-40cm above 1500m but over 50cm in some favoured spots.

 

Note that strong winds are also likely in some parts of the Alps at times over the next couple of days, which could hamper lift operations and add to the generally increasing risk of avalanche.
