Snow overview for Italy
Monday 02 March 2015

A warmer climate is working its way across Europe at the moment and some of the lower resorts in western Italy are starting to see heavy slopes on their resort runs. High altitude slopes are still looking good however after the fresh snowfall the country saw last week.

One of our featured resorts to see some fresh snow was La Thuile (45/150cm) with around 5cm falling on Monday 2nd March. It’s by no means a huge amount but fresh snow is always welcomed. The off piste is still quite varied but the pistes have been refreshed, to go alongside all 37 lifts that were turning. The warmer climate means that lower runs are getting heavier in the afternoon but high altitude runs are looking good, especially with the latest fall and the climate remains quite cold high up.

We have had reports of high winds, particularly in Courmayeur (65/165cm), which caused the majority of the lifts to close, leaving eight turning for the day.

The current cloudy spell is expected to remain until midweek, with some light snow possible, but then it should start to brighten up once again.

I go regularly for the odd day from the French side. Nobody has mentioned the long off piste runs from the top. These are superb in good conditions, and in less good snow or visibility conditions challenged my limited ability considerably. There are some other possibilites through the trees mainly from the top of Plan de la Gabba, otherwise it is mainly boulevard skiing (pleasant enough).
1. Cresta di Youla down right back to Zerotta, choice of two big gullies lower down, then poling or skating along cross country tracks. Can also traverse round the back into this bowl from Crestas d'Arp
2. Cresta di Arp traverse left to col then down left to Dolonne. Route back to piste hard to find and steep descent, easier to carry on down to town and short walk.
3. Cresta d'Arp down Val di Youla to La Balme in Val di la Thuile. Get bus (coming from La Thuile) back to Dolonne. A little expedition. If sunny, better to stay up on right hand side of valley..
