Snow overview for Italy
Thursday 11 February 2016

Changeable weather was affecting many regions across Italy on Thursday 11th February, with early morning sunshine giving way to light snowfall by the afternoon. Conditions across many resorts have seen dramatic improvement of late thanks to recent snowfalls.

The Dolomites saw some much need fresh snow, with totals in excess of 20cm falling in the majority of resorts in the region. The resorts of Arabba (40/48cm) and Campitello (15/80cm) saw the biggest gains, seeing around 40-60cm of new snow over the course of the week. Conditions have seen significant improvements as a result, with excellent slopes and pockets of fresh powder to be found off-piste. Base depths have seen significant improvements across the region, with good skiing now available across the entire mountain.

Resorts across the Aosta Valley typically saw some of the heaviest of the recent snowfall, with Courmayeur (90/190cm) seeing around 50cm of fresh snowfall throughout Wednesday. Elsewhere conditions across the region have seen vast improvements, with 20cm of new snow ensuring that excellent skiing is currently available in the resorts of Cervinia (50/240cm) and La Thuile (60/220cm).

The Milky Way region has seen some encouraging signs of improvement of late, with 20cm of fresh snow recorded earlier in the week. As a result, all links between resorts are now open, with 53 lifts currently in operation. Only 87km of pistes are currently open, although expect this to increase as conditions continue to improve.

Cloud is set to move in throughout much of the afternoon on Thursday, bring with it the possibility of some light snowfall. This is likely to continue over much of the weekend, with resorts across the Aosta Valley likely to see around 20-40cm by the start of next week. Plenty more snow expected over the week ahead, with the heaviest of this likely to fall over the course of Tuesday.  Temperatures will remain below freezing for the duration, with lows of around -5C across many regions. The avalanche risk is expected to be high for much of the week ahead due to the large volume of snow that has fallen over the past week. As a result, please take extra care if heading off-piste and be sure to check in resort for the latest avalanche information.

LSH Ski Challenge 2016 - Cormayeut
Overall rating: 5 stars
Denise Burgess
Visited: January 2016

This was an organised event for the property sector.
We had three perfect days of skiing.
During the week the slopes were quiet ... And the weekend more crowded with Italians and French locals visiting from the cities.
Maison Vielle restaurant (in the slopes) has outstanding pasta... Particularly the carbonara.. Also recommend the foccata bread with peppercino (like a crushed chilli sauce in a jar)

Black Piste 5 was the only really challenging run/mogul field... And for an advance intermediate a real challenge to get down... But huge grin at the end! Found the rest of the blacks and reds thoroughly enjoyable!

Bar Roma is the place to go for Apres... And the American Bar
