Snow overview for Italy
Monday 16 January 2017

Conditions were sunny and very cold in Italy on Monday 16th January. Conditions on snow were mostly excellent today thanks to some snowfalls over the weekend. The snowfalls were light for resorts in the Dolomites and heavy in resorts around the Mont Blanc Massif. Courmayeur (30/90cm) experienced sensational snowfall at the weekend, with one dump totalling 50cm. Today conditions in the resort were still excellent and pockets of powder could still be found off-piste.  Elsewhere, Cervinia (45/125cm) was slow to open all of its lifts today, as avalanche control work was required after the weekend snowfalls and high winds.

Broadly speaking, conditions remain excellent on piste but limited off-piste. Resorts in the Sella Ronda are still skiing almost entirely on an artificial snow base. The best skiing can currently be found in the Mont Blanc Massif and Matterhorn areas.

In the forecast, sunshine will make a strong return this week, dominating the forecast. No new snow is expected this week.

Visited: December 2015

1 day visit from La Thuille,with my partner &11yr old granddaughter our freinds Anne & Jason and their 2 daughters 11&16.Did the same 1 day visit last x-mas.
As always a stunning view of the Matterhorn(its just a big rock)according to one of our ski party.
Cervinia was as most of the Italian resorts struggling for snow,this said what they had natural and artificial was well groomed and obviously being well looked after.As we had teamed up with another couple who visit most years,we dropped over onto the Swiss side and it proved to then be an easy transition back over to the Cervinia side.
The youngsters decided to try out the snowpark and had a wonderful time being videoed over the jumps despite not always being successful with their landings.
Food is reasonable on the mountain or down in the town.
Runs on the lower elevations can become very crowded particularly mid-afternoon.
We are considering a x-mas week here,as the area combined with Zermatt would provide for a full weeks skiing,which i am sure would be excellent in improved snow conditions.This said i am bearing in mind that historically Cervinias lifts are prone to closure in high winds.If we dont make a full week we would certainly return for the day.
Everyone had a great days skiing.
