Weekly Snow Report - Thursday 05 December
The week ahead
Welcome to our first December round-up. There's not a huge amount of snow in the forecast for Europe right now, although this coming weekend may see some useful snowall to the East. Temperatures are tough to call; The Alps have seen widespread inversions this past week (where it's very cold in the valleys, but mild on the mountains) and that's likely to continue in places.
* Pre-Xmas Special on Ski Hire for J2Skiers (see below)
* Fernie reports 70cm of snow in 48 hours to Wednesday.
* After the heavy snow there are low temperatures in the Alps.
* Scotland goes from thaw to snow to gales.
* Deep early December snow lying in the Pyrenees.
* Geneva Transfers from EUR19.50 (see below)
The coming weekend will see the number of ski areas open in the northern hemisphere leap from the hundreds to 1000+ - it’s the first of the three big opening weekends of the 2013-14 Olympic Ski season, which will peak the weekend of the 14th and see most of the resorts open for Christmas week.
In the Alps the heavy November snowfalls have given way in recent days to low - double-digits Celcius below - temperatures and clear skies, meaning crisp, sunny ski days for those lucky enough to be already out on the piste. The Dolomites and Pyrenees are also looking good.
Western North American resorts have been posting some of the biggest snowfalls of December to date with most from Alberta to Colorado and all points west clocking up at least a foot (30cm) of fresh powder since the start of the month.
Closer to home there’s a mixed picture in Scotland with a thaw at the weekend, followed by snowfall midweek but also gales. It’s uncertain whether any Scottish centres will be able to open this weekend.
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 - 5th December 2013 online.
Alpybus is running a promotion on all shared and private transfers to Chamonix, Morzine, Les Gets, Avoriaz and Verbier from Geneva Airport with prices starting from as little as EUR 19.50!
