Weekly Snow Report - Thursday 17 April

The week ahead

Hello,

If you've been with us a while, you'll know that we're prone to saying "it's not over yet" at this time of year... well, guess what...

The warm temperatures of the past couple of weeks look likely to moderate considerably over the coming weekend, and there are some decent snowfalls - to 2,000m and below in some places - in the forecast for early next week!

This Week’s Headlines:

* Hemsedal in Norway extends season to May 11th.

* A foot of fresh snow at some Colorado ski areas.

* Up to 40cm of fresh snow in Austria.

With just a touch of irony Mother Nature has decided that now that we’re entering our second month of spring and the majority of resorts will be closed by the end of this Easter weekend, it’s a good point at which to bring back winter and dump on the Alps. Austrian ski areas, which in the northern half of the country have not had a vintage snow season, will feel that irony most keenly as they needed snow most in the winter and received some of the biggest falls of the past few days - now most are already closed.

There have also been significant falls in Western North America and in parts of Scandinavia.

But there’s no irony, just all good news for those ski areas which heroically stay open in to May and in the case of glacier resorts later still, as they’re enjoying great powder skiing this week and have bigger bases now to see them through the warmer months. A number of other areas have also announced they’re extending their ski seasons.

More Snowy News

There is much more detail of the snow in The Alps, Scandinavia and North America in the full version of our J2Ski Weekly Snow Report - 17th April 2014 online.

Have fun, and stay safe!

Until next week,
The j2Ski Team
