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.

Hmmm? Am I missing something??

Well Scrooge was infamous for the "Bah Humbug" & that'll be my Scrooge or Victor Meldrew moment regarding Passo.
Have I really missed something looking at previous reviews?
Subjectively "I had a great holiday" but let me objective here?

It's now 2016 & gondola access upgrades have been made to the Presena Glacier & over to Ponte di Legno.
However the ski area is not that extensive & in 2 days it can be skied!?
The main Passo area is pretty unexciting imho despite AC/DC booming out.
The away day to Madonna di Campiglio using the Passo area pass is a MUST.
You may consider the local bus to Marilleva 900 to access the Madonna ski area rather than the €25 Tour Operator trip to Madonna itself???
Most previous reviewers were either damned good skiers or certainly think so?There's a big difference. I'm better than OK but Jan 2016 & the snow conditions were far from ideal.
Lots of ice across Ponte & one lethal section on the Paradiso black run down from Presena. All run grades up a notch!
I was struggling for an edge on scoured out areas & won't just blame less than fabulously serviced rental skis.
As I said & we all now know early 2016 was a bad year for snow in most Italian resorts.
The best skiing was on the groomed runs in the morning. Hard, fast & crusty.
By afternoon & hours of sunshine pistes were often seriously cut up; thick, slow sugar mounds & near moguls.
The resort did not seem keen to make snow overnight for some reason & the snow line was rising daily & bare patches sprouting hourly; so much so the the popular long red "Alpino" run was closed.
There are plus points... Plenty of on piste eateries, reasonably cheap too. The views up by the Presena Glacier are stunning. Lift queues almost non existent except at the weekend when the Italians arrive & the place is heaving!
We stayed out of town at La Mirandola. The food was fabulous if slow, a great spa area. The dining room pianist "Elisa Montaldo" absolutely brilliant!! Check her out.....
