Conditions across the Alps are fantastic right now thanks to significant new snow in most areas. The greatest snowfalls (1m to 1.5m) have been close to the Swiss-Italian border roughly east of Zermatt/Saas-Fee, along the main Alpine ridge towards St Moritz and as far north as Andermatt. The north-eastern Austrian Alps (e.g Salzburgland) have seen the least snow, with just a dusting today.
