We take a look back at the season’s snowfall across the world’s major ski areas.
Over the 2017/2018 winter, resorts from Nevis Range to Niseko have boasted about bumper snowfalls and tumbling records, but who has fared best? We touched base with the snow reporting team to get the story of the season, from first snow right through to closing day.
The team consulted the Ski Club’s historical snow data from across the globe. Members can access 9-day weather forecasts and the same historical snow reports for hundreds of resorts. Find out more about becoming a Ski Club member here.
One of the best winters in recent memory for the Alps
Snow began falling early and heavily across Europe, an early indication of the season to come. Storm Karl blanketed almost the entirety of the Alps with large amounts of snow that would form the beginnings of the season’s snowpack through the second week in November, providing especially good skiing in the Austrian Glaciers. Mid December saw the vast majority of Alpine resorts opening to some of the best snowpack in recent years, as well as frequent powder days thanks to our second major storm - Yves.
