More snow on the way!
It’s been a bumper week for snowfall, particularly in the west of America where Utah, on Thursday alone, clocked a healthy 38cm at Snowbasin. The snowstorm is now pushing eastwards, providing a healthy top up to north eastern resorts, ready for the start of the weekend.
More abundant snowfall is scheduled across British Columbia. It’s been an especially icy week here, with temperatures down to minus 41 degrees in some spots. The forecast is due to warm up slightly, but heavy snowfall is set to continue in Whistler and right across the northern Rockies to start the weekend.
Across Europe too, there’s been more snowfall this week, mostly on Thursday, with plenty of blue-sky skiing too. There are further snow flurries scheduled across the northern portion of the Alps to finish the week into the start of weekend. Our correspondent in La Rosière is currently reporting “fantastic skiing, sunny, blue skies and buckets of powder”.
Scotland is also expecting snow flurries in the next few days, as the temperatures continue to drop. The strength of wind could be a problem for skiers here, potentially impacting on lift operation.
In Norway, a large dump of snow is scheduled for Saturday, which will push its way from west to east right across Scandinavia.
In the Pyrenees, there has been no snow for two weeks. Nonetheless, the runs are in reasonable condition, thanks to the hard work of the teams working the slopes there.
Bulgaria has enjoyed a good start to the season and this week’s heavy snowfall is just easing away, ready for excellent conditions for the forthcoming week, with more of the white stuff to come during the week.
Slovenia is also anticipating good conditions in Kranjska Gora for the World Cup tomorrow, with fresh snow expected overnight, and a sunny day for the Women’s Salom and Grand Slalom events.
The Alps are enjoying their best snow conditions this century. Don’t miss this great opportunity to ski. Book your ski break now!
