Ski Solutions Snow Overview

Last updated: February 25, 2018 03:05

Outlook

he vast majority of Alpine resorts saw light snow this week, continuing on Thursday the 22nd February with many resorts expecting only small accumulations. The exception is the Italian Piedmont and resorts around the Matterhorn, which are expecting heavy snow over the weekend. Expect heavy cloud cover to limit visibility almost everywhere other than at the highest altitudes.

The Pyrenees continues to see far heavier snowfall, especially on the French side though also across Andorra, where powder conditions could be found on Wednesday and Thursday due to recent heavy snowfall.

Great conditions are on offer across the vast majority of North America. While Canada is in the grips of a cold spell, a superbly snow filled February has meant pistes are in excellent conditions. While somewhat delayed, winter has truly arrived over the Rockies in the USA, with Utah in particular but Colorado also seeing an exceptionally good past 10 days, improving conditions across the broad. Unfortunately rain fell across the east coast in both the USA and Canada, leading to icy slopes with the potential for more to come over the weekend as the weather continues to fluctuate.

SNOW ALERT
Based on current weather forecasts for the next 9 days, the top three resorts for expected snowfall are:

1. Zermatt, Switzerland , 245cm
2. Macugnaga, Italy, 165cm
3. Cervinia, Italy, 155cm
