Latest snow report

Updated: 6.30pm Friday 25 March 2022

High pressure is currently dominating the weather in the Alps and will continue to do so for several days to come. This means lots of dry fine and sunny weather for all regions with solid overnight refreezes and pleasant (but not excessively warm) days.

 

In short, this is perfect for skiers who enjoy spring snow conditions and are adept at following the sun round the mountain, with east-facing slopes softening first, followed by slopes facing south and then finally west- facing ones later in the day. Note that north- facing slopes above around 2300m have been staying firm for most, if not all, of the day.

 

Off-piste skiers can also enjoy some good spring (corn) snow at altitude, again depending on altitude and orientation, though note that snow cover/depths are below par everywhere and very meagre in the southern Alps.

 

Across the pond there may not be a huge amount of fresh snow to report but there is still plenty of good spring skiing on offer…
