Latest snow report

Updated: 1.30pm Friday 8 December 2023

Snow conditions in the Alps are currently excellent for the time of year, though they are set to deteriorate in places next week, with the advent of much milder weather from the Atlantic which will be rainy in places.


This rain will be most problematic between Sunday night and Wednesday in the north-western Alps where the rain/snow limit will reach 2400-2700m for a time. It will be less of an issue the further south and east you are.


In the meantime, snow depths are above average across many parts of the Alps, especially in the far west of Austria (e.g. Lech, St Anton), the eastern Swiss Alps (e.g. Klosters, Laax) and in the higher resorts of the northern French Alps (e.g. Val Thorens, Tignes). Snow depths in the southern Alps are generally more modest.


Across the pond, snow depths are generally below par, but conditions in many western US resorts are improving thanks to new snow this week…
