Les Deux Alpes (205cm) was quite sunny with a number of clouds developing later on. Tignes (180cm) was quite sunny also but is due to close on Sunday 3rd August.
It was mainly a wet and cloudy day on Thursday for Austria. The poor snow conditions have seen The Stubai Glacier and Kaprun close for their summer season. The Molltal and Dachstein Glacier are temporarily closed until more snow arrives. Only the Hintertux Glacier (280cm) is currently open.
Australia has seen quite a lot of high winds which have affected a number of lifts but all resorts are open except for Ben Lomond, which is temporarily closed due to poor snow conditions.
Weather affected many New Zealand resorts on Thursday, with strong winds being the main affecting factor. Some resorts were open though and good skiing could be enjoyed due to this week’s fresh snow.
More snow has fallen this week across Chile and Argentina.
Timberline, USA and Whistler, Canada are now closed for the summer.
The Hintertux Glacier (280cm) is our only featured Austrian resort currently open for summer skiing. On Thursday 31st July it was quite overcast but good skiing can still be enjoyed on well groomed pistes. The off piste is very limited so do take care. The weather forecast looks very much the same as today for the approaching weekend. There should be sunny spells in the morning but cloud cover will develop in the afternoon, which will continue into early next week.
Tignes is scheduled to close on the 3rd August so this weekend will be your last opportunity to ski here until it reopens nearer winter. On Thursday it was quite sunny and warm with three lifts in operation, darker clouds developed later in the afternoon which brought light rainfall lower down the mountain. The off piste is limited so be cautious of rocks if you do hit the side piste.
As the weekend approaches, it will be a mixture of sun and cloud for Friday with more clouds dominating the skies on Saturday and Sunday, which could bring a light snow fall.
Zermatt (195cm) is also in excellent condition due to a recent snow fall on Tuesday with around 15cm falling across the Matterhorn ski area. On Thursday it was a bright start to the day with more clouds forming in the afternoon. There is potential for a light snow fall on late Monday evening and into the early hours of Tuesday.
The forecast is indicating a very cloudy weekend, with a good chance of snow fall on Friday and heavier snow on Saturday evening. It will be quite cold so do wrap up warm if you are hitting the Swiss slopes this weekend.
The forecast indicates a cloudy day for this Friday, which looks like to continue into the weekend. The increased cloud cover has brought a good chance of substantial snow fall on Saturday evening.
The Presena Glacier and Val Senales are closed for the summer.
Perisher (148cm) was also affected by the high winds. They still had plenty of lifts open, with 30 in operation but they had to close the other 18 lifts.
Ben Lomond is still temporarily closed until the snow conditions improve so do keep a close eye on our reports.
As the weekend approaches there is lots of cloud cover expected, which could bring fresh snow across all of our featured resorts in Australia. It looks likely to improve on Sunday when the clouds should fade with the sun taking over the skies. It will still remain quite cold so take plenty of warm clothing but dont forget your sunscreen.
Mount Olympus has unfortunately not been able to open for snowsports due to the lack of natural snowfall and there is still no set date when they may be open, as more snow is required.
Good skiing was possible at Coronet Peak (47cm) on Thursday although the lower slopes were a little wet and heavy. Better conditions existed on the higher slopes, which benefited from snow rather than rain. The cover at Rainbow (26cm) was similar with heavy snow lower down. The average base depth of 26cm is not that deep so further fresh snowfall could benefit visitors, and the good news is that more snow is expected over the weekend.
The Remarkables (80cm) in is great shape following the fresh snow of this week. You can enjoy fresh snow skiing off the groomed runs and good to excellent cover on the prepared slopes.
On the North Island, both Turoa (145cm) and Whakapapa (82cm) were open on Thursday. Turoa reported packed snow cover on the groomed runs and icy conditions away from these slopes, while Whakapapa reported softer snow cover across that resort.
More snow has also fallen across all of our featured Chilean resorts. Termas de Chillan (240cm) has seen its base depth increase considerably and more snow fell on Wednesday 30th July, with up to 28cm falling, and it continued to snow on Thursday.
The weekend forecast is indicating more snow, particularly for Argentina. Chile is also likely to receive fresh now, with pockets of sunshine on Friday and the following Sunday.
