Latest snow report
Updated: 4pm Friday 24 January 2020
It has now been some time since there has been any significant really widespread snow in the Alps, although conditions generally remain pretty good, especially on-piste. The snow is often quite thin or patchy at very low altitude, however, which may cause problems in a few weeks’ time unless there is a significant change to the (mostly) mild weather pattern that has now lasted several weeks.
Some snow is forecast for the Alps over the next days, patchy over the weekend but more significant early next week. However, any return to winter will be very transitory and high pressure is expected to dominate again from the middle of next week into the first part of February.
It is a very different story in the Pyrenees (especially in the east), which have seen 1.5m or more of fresh snow falling in places over the last couple of days.
Across the pond, Whistler continues to be the place to be, with lots of fresh snow this week and yet more in the forecast…
