Snow overview for Italy
Thursday 26 March 2015

The recent snowfall in the west has certainly been welcomed as spring conditions were taking their toll on the slopes. It’s still fairly warm, with an average temperature of around 5C. The east is currently feeling the effects of the clouds that were present in the west earlier. This has brought rainfall to some lower resorts but up at a higher altitude there are snowflakes falling.

The Aosta valley, with Cervinia (45/270cm) and Pila (35/140cm) reported around 10-15cm of fresh snow on Thursday 26th March in the early hours, followed by sunny skies.
With the east currently sat under thick clouds, rain and snow has fallen but Cortina (10/90cm) has profited from the arrival of the snow as the resort team have reported up to a total of 35cm over the past 24 hours. From this you can expect excellent pistes higher up, with pockets of fresh powder. It continued to be cloudy and reasonably cold so the fresh snow remained intact. The avalanche risk has been increased to a dangerous level and around half of the lifts were closed, meaning 19 lifts were closed leaving 21 in operation. Once the mountain is completely safe, there should be fantastic conditions waiting to be hit.

The forecast so far is predicting the clouds, particularly in the east will start to fade thus joining the west in sunshine just in time for the weekend.

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..
