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.

Fantastic area again with the best ski leader in ski club John Cahill!!
Overall rating: 5 stars

Visited: March 2015

Despite changeable weather,we had mega snow, sun, no visibility to some visibility, but never a problem to ski with the Cahill meister. Always had new challenges for us and loads of fun. Second time skiing with John although not in this resort.
Skiing with him a great learning curve for me and our small group as per last time. The area is great to ski
and affordable but not for beginners, though not too difficult for advanced/ intermediates. Were here last year and it was like skiing in a totally different place as we had wall to wall sunshine which makes life a lot easier
Not being a party person, at night was great as you had a chance for a late sfternoon boogie on the slips the the at the end of the day, or Max's bar leaving you fresh for the morning or not as if your choice without relieving you of too many euros. Lovely Old town to walk around and good standard of hotels. Would recommend it to anyone, depending on the snow it will be a different experience. We had powder moguls piste but above all great challenges with our hired fat boy skis for two days. Glad to get back to my own skis after the powder. Challenge yourself you will love it Push yourself out your comfort zone we did 😄😄 thanks to the Cahill expert x
Always remember this holiday made memorable by the lunar eclipse!!
