Our featured French resort Tignes basked in sensational sunshine on Thursday 20th October. Ski conditions are outstanding thanks to recent snowfalls in the area. Likewise in Italy the excellent start to the season is continuing. A high chance of light snowfall in the short term forecast is expected to make for ideal conditions in the coming weekend.
In the southern hemisphere skiing is now limited to just two resorts on New Zealand’s North Island. Turoa and Whakapapa are both still operating, but were closed on Thursday due to inclement weather.
Elsewhere, In North America there is no skiing at Timberline or Whistler. Both resorts have scheduled opening dates in November.
In the Tyrol, weather was mixed. It was a cloudy day for Hintertux (75cm) and Stubai (60cm). Hintertux has the most open terrain of any ski area in the world right now, and with the weather set to improve on Friday and over the weekend (along with recent snowfalls), some very, very good days could be in the pipeline. It was better weather for Kaunertal (45cm), Pitztal (78cm) and Solden (95cm) – mostly blue skies with a varying levels of cloud cover. Solden is a great option at the moment despite not having as much snow as some of the other Austrian Glaciers.
Around Salzburg, Kaprun (90cm) experienced a miserable day weather wise on the 20th of October 2016. Fear not, however, as fresh snow and improving weather from tomorrow means things could get very tasty, very soon. Down south, Molltal (130cm) has 20cm of fresh snow but it was a wet and windy day on the mountain. Still, you will want to be on that mountain when things clear up as we could be on the verge of some very good days. In central Austria, things are picking up on the stunning Dachstein glacier (50cm): 20cm of fresh snow was very welcome news, especially for the park team, who now have more of the fluffy stuff to work with when building that legendary Dachstein Superpark
Pleasant, dry weather conditions are expected to continue in Tignes, until Sunday when more unstable weather is likely to bring rain and freezing levels above 3000 metres.
Clouds and potentially a light snow storm is forecast overnight for our featured Italian resorts. Weekend conditions are looking ideal for a day on the mountain.
