Weekly Snow Report - Thursday 06 March
The week ahead
Hello and welcome to March,
For about the first time this winter, recent snows look to be giving way to clear and sunny high pressure conditions for the next week or so... so pack your sun-cream and get out to enjoy the impressive snow depths over most of The Alps!
* Huge snowfalls in Western USA, parts of the Western Alps and Pyrenees - up to 155cm in 7 days.
* Scottish ski area claims more than a 5m base.
* First snow of 2014 reported in New Zealand.
Yet another week of moderate to heavy snowfall was reported from many parts of the ski world; with much of the Alps getting sizable fresh snow falls and bigger falls still reported in Western North America. Many resorts in the French and Italian alps posted 60-90cm (2-3 feet) and in some cases even more fresh snow in the last seven days.
However the Pyrenees have come out top for big falls this week with Cauterets in the French Alps, often a "powder pocket" each season, reporting 30-40cm falls every 24 hours for several days over the weekend resulting in a remarkable 155cvm (over five foot) accumulation in the last week.
Most other areas looks good; the Dolomites, Scotland, Eastern North America and Scandinavia in particular all continue to maintain good cover.
And in the Southern Hemisphere reports have also come in of heavy snowfall on ski slopes in New Zealand more than three months before the season is due to kick off there, turning the mountains white.
With the Paralympics beginning on Friday there does not appear to be a lot of difference to the conditions Paralympians will face compared to the weather at the Olympics themselves. It’s been a dry-ish week with just 5cm of snow reported. The base up top is still just over 2m but at base level it has largely gone and there’s about 10cm maintained snow.
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 - 6th March 2014 online.
Have fun, and stay safe!
Until next week,
Please forward this email to anyone who might be interested - thank you!

Stay Safe :- Big Snow means Big Avalanche Risk - make sure you always know and understand the local avalanche risk level before you ski or snowboard off-piste, take appropriate safety equipment and never go off-piste alone.
