Snow overview for Italy

17 December 2018

10cm fell over the Monte Rosa (20/120cm); with almost all the available terrain was open as of Monday 17th. The slopes were almost deserted; with a huge amount of fresh snow across which skiers can take enjoy the fresh snow and clear skies. Resorts across the Aosta Valley also reported a fresh dusting, including 10cm on top of the already substantial snowpack in Cervinia (5/205cm). Despite more mild weather arriving in much of the Alps, it remained quite chilly, sitting at -13C at summit. Other resorts in the region, including La Thuile (10/70cm) and Pila (20/100cm) also looked in fantastic shape, with the season in full swing as a far greater number of runs open up.

Further south, a less substantial snowpack has limited the number of lifts running in the Milky Way and nearby Bardonecchia (20/60cm). The resorts were however reporting more than 50% of the snow on the ground was man made, with only 23 out of the potential 230 trails open. With any luck, the low pressure forecast to result in precipitation across the region will move things in the right direction.

While the weather over the Dolomites is clear and cool, a lack of snowfall is leading to hard packed piste and limited off piste opportunities. Substantial artificial production has resulted in the majority of the lifts and slopes being skiable, although the off piste opportunities leave much to be desired. Although the conditions were suitable for the recent world cup races, they may not be as enjoyable for recreational skiing off the beaten track. There is a minimal chance of fresh snow on the horizon for the region, despite there being the likelihood of the more westerly resorts seeing a mid-week top up.
