Snow Overview

Our twice-weekly round up of the latest snow conditions in the mountains

Get the latest snow and weather conditions in all major ski areas updated on Monday and Thursday afternoons by the Ski Club's information department.

Monday 23 May 2016

Summary

Great skiing remains on offer across our featured Austrian resorts. Hintertux continues to provide some of the best conditions, whilst resorts such as Kaprun and Dachstein Glacier also boast impressive snow depths.

Over in France at Espace Killy, Tignes is closed temporarily before it reopens its glacier later this summer.  At Italy, Cervinia has closed and will reopen in June.

There has been fresh snow over the weekend at Zermatt. Conditions are excellent up high and plenty more snow is on the forecast for the week ahead.

Our featured southern hemisphere resorts are yet to open for the 2016 skiing season.

Austria

The best conditions on Thursday 23rd May could be found at Hintertux (330cm). It was a cloudy day that provided poor visibility at times, however, the resort still managed to open 13 of its lifts for skiing, and piste conditions remain excellent up high. Elsewhere, the slopes at Kaprun (300cm) and Kaunertal (131/193cm) are also in great shape for the time of year.

The forecast for the week ahead looks likely to be a mixed bag for Austria. The cloud of today could stick around for a while longer and may bring some rain at times, before Thursday then offers the chance of some sunshine.

France

Our featured French resorts are yet to open for the 2016 ski season.

Switzerland

Conditions at Zermatt (250cm) were excellent on Monday 23rd May. The weekend brought around 12cm of fresh snow to the resort, providing some brilliant skiing on the glacier and plenty of pockets of fresh powder to be found. More snow is on the forecast for the rest of the week, with heavy accumulations predicted at times towards summit levels.

Italy
