Snow overview for Italy
Thursday 27 November 2014

Thursday 27th November dawned grey and damp across many Italian resorts. It was cold enough for some light snow to fall at altitude; however with the freezing level sitting above 2000m the lower slopes saw rain instead.

The most skiing was available at Cervinia (45/195cm), with 11 lifts spinning and the link to Zermatt and the Plateau Rosa complete.

Glacier skiing is available at Passo Tonale (0/300cm) and Val Senales (5/250cm) and both resorts are reporting excellent upper base depths for the time of year. Lower down however, the lack of snow has meant that skiers must use the access lifts to return to the resort.

Several resorts are looking to offer limited terrain this weekend. Both Champoluc (0/130cm) and Gressoney-la-Trinite (0/130cm) in the Monterosa ski area are opening on Saturday 29th November, as is Bormio (0/100cm), although top to bottom skiing will be unavailable at all three.

Due to the mild weather and lack of snow, Courmayeur, La Thuile and Pila have delayed opening until at least December 5th.

Just returned from a short ski break to Courmayeur in early Jan 14. Overall the experience was very enjoyable and would do it again. If you like quiet pistes and no lift queues then Jan is definitely the time to go. In 3 days I think we queued twice for lifts! The down side though is that the town was quite quiet in the evenings and there was no apres ski anywhere which was dissapointing for us. I suspect though that this is the case even when the town is busy.
Courmayeur itself is a beautiful town set in the magnificent mountainous scenery with lots of expensive shops, a few bars, and plenty of restaurants. The ski area is a gondola ride up the mountain to around 1700m. Apparently there's is 100km of pistes but i would very much doubt that there is half of this of groomed pistes. Neverthless, there is definitely enough to keep most experienced skiers interested for a few day with plenty of pretty steep reds that might be blacks in other resorts. Couldn't recommend Courmayeur for beginners though as there is really only two blue runs and one of those has some definite red sections in it!
