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.

First time I have been to Sauze and I will definitely return. This was my first snowboarding holiday (I can already ski) and the slopes were perfect for me; lots of choice and just hard enough to move me out of my comfort zone and increase my boarding skill. Its a massive ski area too so you don't get bored with the same slopes. The nightlife is pretty great, loads of bars to choose from and everyone was incredibly friendly. Flight times and transfer times together take less than 3 hours, so you dont lose any time travelling.
