Snow overview for Italy
Thursday 17 April 2014

It was mostly warm and sunny across Italy on Thursday 17th April, with only a slight dusting of snow in some north eastern resorts. Livigno (100/200cm) was one of these, receiving a centimetre or two of fresh snow earlier this week. They’ve still got a good snow base, after a snowier than usual winter with great spring conditions across the mountain.

Cervinia (35/290cm) is in very good shape too. Its upper slopes still have plenty of snow on them and north facing areas still hold some nice powder in quieter areas. All the links with Zermatt, over in Switzerland, remain open.

Snowier weather is expected to arrive this weekend, bringing around 15cm of fresh snow to the upper areas of many resorts. Cervinia’s upper slopes could do a little better though with around 40cm expected. 20cm of this could fall on Saturday 19th April.

Visited: January 2014

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!
