Spring conditions have seen a number of resorts closing as many seasons come to an end.
Las Lenas, Argentina has now closed for the season.
Australia has a total of four resorts closed, these being Ben Lomond, Mount Baw Baw, Mount Buller and Selwyn Snowfields.
New Zealand also has four resorts closed with Mount Dobson and Mount Lyford closing a short time ago. Over the weekend The Remarkables and Treble Cone also closed their gates after a great winter.
The Hintertux (130cm) had excellent conditions on Monday. The sun was shining brightly, 13 lifts were turning and the pistes were in great shape. The off piste conditions started out quite hard but softened in the afternoon.
The forecast for the next few days looks much cloudier but there is a chance of light snow fall followed by a few sunny spells.
Saas Fee (185cm) continues to offer great piste skiing during its summer season. With a lovely blue sky and eight lifts in operation, Monday 29th September was a day to thoroughly enjoy if you were out on the slopes of Saas Fee.
As the week develops so will the clouds. Cloudy skies are expected in the coming afternoons but there is a chance of light snow fall.
The sun is looking like it will be covered as the week progresses with more clouds expected in the afternoons.
Cervinia and The Presena Glacier are closed for the summer.
Perisher (122cm) still offers good riding on well groomed pistes. On Monday 29th September the resort team had seven lifts turning. If you’re heading off piste do take care as conditions are mostly varied and patches of grass are starting surface through the melting snow.
A total of four resorts are closed in Australia. These are Ben Lomond, Mount Baw Baw, Mount Buller and Selwyn snowfields.
If you are heading out this week you can expect quite a bit of sunshine from midweek, with a few patches of cloud. Of the resorts still open, beginner areas are still in good condition if you’re little cubs are attending ski school.
Mount Hutt (65cm) and Porter Heights (50cm) have each reported up to 3cm falling on Sunday. It’s not quite a powder drop but it’s great to see during their spring time.
Rainbow (90cm) favoured the most with this recent spring time snow fall as the resort team reported up to 15cm falling on Sunday. To make things even better, it was a fantastic day as the sun was shining for those out enjoying the bluebird day.
Prior to this week there were two resorts closed for the season. After the weekend, two more have joined them after their great seasons came to a close. The Remarkables and Treble Cone have joined Mount Dobson and Mount Lyford and express their gratitude for all those who visited them during their winter.
There’s more sunshine expected this week for the remainder of the resorts still in operation. It is expected to cloud over later on in the week but it could bring yet more snow.
Cerro Catedral, Argentina (150cm) had an excellent weekend with up to 20cm being reported on Sunday. As a result there are fresh new layers on the pistes and fresh tracks to be carved off the piste. It was quite cloudy on Monday 29th September but general piste conditions were excellent.
Las Lenas, Argentina have had a great winter but their season has now come to an end.
Portillo (62cm), Chile have reported up to 5cm falling across the weekend. It was quite a cloudy day on Monday too, which could bring more light snow high up on the mountain if the clouds remain. Overall conditions are still very good and the resort team are reporting powder fields off the piste.
The new ski week got off to a cloudy start in Argentina and Chile but the forecast is predicting lots of sunshine as the week develops so don’t forget to take sunscreen out with you when you hit the slopes.
