Snow overview for Italy
Monday 02 March 2015

A warmer climate is working its way across Europe at the moment and some of the lower resorts in western Italy are starting to see heavy slopes on their resort runs. High altitude slopes are still looking good however after the fresh snowfall the country saw last week.

One of our featured resorts to see some fresh snow was La Thuile (45/150cm) with around 5cm falling on Monday 2nd March. It’s by no means a huge amount but fresh snow is always welcomed. The off piste is still quite varied but the pistes have been refreshed, to go alongside all 37 lifts that were turning. The warmer climate means that lower runs are getting heavier in the afternoon but high altitude runs are looking good, especially with the latest fall and the climate remains quite cold high up.

We have had reports of high winds, particularly in Courmayeur (65/165cm), which caused the majority of the lifts to close, leaving eight turning for the day.

The current cloudy spell is expected to remain until midweek, with some light snow possible, but then it should start to brighten up once again.

Firstly a big thank you to Baxter Horton, author of epic reports, great leader and even better company. In a week when copious snow restricted our movements around the mountain his guiding was much appreciated by his little group of mature intermediates.
Sauze lived up to its billing. Charming town with lots of welcoming and relatively inexpensive bars (by ski standards) and the same applied to the mountain restaurants. Great intermediate pistes, mostly between the trees (handy in three days of continuous snow) but there wasn’t much evidence of the renowned “immaculate grooming”, perhaps because of the weather, and the lift system is out of the Ark. Slow four seater chairs in the main, except for the drags, and the only lift to the connecting point to nearby resorts – which is an even slower, more exposed and interminably long two seat ride. The lifts are the one factor that will make me think twice about returning - and led me to reduce my rating. The Via Lattea, whatever the weather, is also more linked in theory than practice because the connections depend on tenuous and often long lift journeys - it's not Espace Killy or the Three Valleys. However, there are lots of elements, including a very pleasant hotel (Grand Besson) and a short transfer (well, in theory; Crystal made an hour turn into three each way) that will encourage a further visit. But thanks again to Baxter!
