If you love skiing on fast, grippy and well groomed runs then French resorts are in perfect condition for you at the moment. Last week’s snowfalls have provided excellent materials from groomers, who have been able to open much bigger ski areas as a result. The cherry on top is of course the glorious sunshine, allowing you to top up your goggle tan and helping soothe those January blues! Powder hounds: things are getting pretty tracked out in the Alps but there is lots of fluff still available in the Pyrenees if you get away from the slopes.
In Italy and Switzerland there was hardly a cloud in the sky, and on piste conditions remain very good thanks to recent snowfall. In a similar fashion to Austria, the off piste is now mostly tracked, but the snow is still light and enjoyable to ride.
All Scottish ski centres are currently closed as the country awaits further snow. The current forecast shows for sun and cloud to continue into next week, before temperatures of around +6C may bring rain on Thursday 26th.
There has been loads of new snow in Andorra recently and this is still providing some excellent conditions both on and off pistes.
It’s been very dry in Scandinavia recently with a general lack of snow in both Sweden and Norway. Things are set to improve, however, with snow forecast for the coming days.
Powder days have returned to Canada today with great conditions across most of our featured resorts. Whistler has had almost half a meter in the last 24 hours.
In the Ski Welt (65/75cm), the resorts of Ellmau, Hopfgarten, Scheffau and Soll are all looking impressive. The last snow in the area was on the 16th January, and the off piste is now mostly tracked out. However, 86/91 lifts were spinning on Thursday, and with 275km of groomed terrain on offer, there are plenty of different options available for all abilities.
In the Arlberg region, the lower slopes at St Anton (60/150cm) and St Christoph (60/150cm) were packed, whilst the upper slopes surrounding the resorts were in excellent nick. Nearby at Lech (80/120cm) and Zurs (80/120cm) all but two of the lifts were running (85/87) and the skiing across the area is superb.
Of all our featured Austrian resorts, only one was struggling somewhat compared to rest. Bad Kleienkirchheim in east Austria (15/20cm) has still got a relatively shallow base depth compared to other resorts, and was also an anomaly in the sense that it was also a partly cloudy day on Thursday too.
The sunny skies are set to continue on into the weekend, and current forecast predicts that fine views should prevail well into next week. Temperatures may rise slightly over the weekend, but should still remain cold enough to keep the snow in great condition.
Flaine (70/200cm) and the rest of the Grand Massif have much improved conditions with slopes providing some really enjoyable skiing. The links between resorts are now finally open, much to the relief of holidaymakers. We have to mention some resorts in the Pyrenees, as these have had monumental dumps recently. Bareges/La Mongie (100/180cm) has 80cm of fresh snow at the top of the mountain, though this is fast getting tracked out. Cauterets (85/250cm) is also in amazing nick right the way down to the valley floor. Loads of fresh powder still to be found there.
If you want powder you best head to the Pyrenees, but if you want excellent slope skiing and excellent weather, all of France is providing these in abundance right now.
The forecast is showing strong sunshine everywhere, except around The Matterhorn where snowfalls of 30cm on Sunday 22nd may occur. Currently beyond Sunday sunny weather is expected but this may change by next week.
If you are heading out skiing in Italy in the coming week you should expect mostly sunny dry conditions. Sunday will see a light disturbance pass through bringing some snowfalls of about 20cm around The Matterhorn and The Sella Ronda. The Milky Way area may see 15cm, elsewhere a lighter dusting is all that should be expected.
In the forecast, sunny weather is making a big return. Sunny dry weather is going to feature well into next week. Temps should stay below zero but strong sunshine may make for some icy patches on the lower slopes. Still an excellent time to be in mountains, for those heading to Germany this week, pack the sunscreen and sun glasses.
In the forecast stormy conditions will continue through until the weekend when sunshine will return. There is also good chance of my moderate snowfall in the middle of next week. An excellent time to be skiing in Bulgaria right now.
The current forecast shows for sun and cloud to continue into next week, before temperatures of around +6C may bring rain on Thursday 26th.
The outlook is for more snow for the USA, the excellent season continues.
European Weather Outlook
Long range forecasting is confident that more snow is coming to The Alps, however this time it will be in the southern regions. Italy and southern French resorts like Isola 2000 are in line for a storm front from the Mediterranean Sea west of Corsica. Accumulations and exact direction are still uncertain but forecasts agree, long awaited fresh snow is coming.
In the far north, conditions will continue much as they have been with no significant snow in the short term forecast.
