Weekly Snow Report - Thursday 01 October
The week ahead
Here is our quick guide to where to ski in October (winter IS coming!).
Too soon to get excited? It was hard not to in the last week or so of September when the Alps got dumped on with up to 50cm of fresh snow.
That snow in Europe followed similar accumulations in parts of the Rockies earlier in the month although of course, it still being summer, it largely melted away again after causing a snow-photo tidal wave on social media.
Sustained snowfall through Autumn is what’s needed. Some British media outlets have reported that a strong ‘El Nino weather event’ in the Pacific could not only bring an end to the four season drought in Western North America but also bring ‘End of the world’ type winter weather to Europe... there is no real scientific evidence of that (but it makes a good story); no one really knows what’s coming.
Regardless, there were a few good days of powder skiing on the handful of already open European glaciers.
South of the equator the season is of course winding down. Some areas have already closed and most will have done by mid-October. It has been a good season across the hemisphere, after a very poor start in South America, with regular top ups all through the southern winter including regular snowfalls in September in most countries.
- ‘El Nino’ forecast to be strongest for up to six decades (depending which report you read) - meaning possibly huge snowfalls (or not).
- Good September snowfall in the Alps to start Autumn.
- Big fresh snowfalls in the Southern Hemisphere through September.
- Some resorts opening early in the Alps last month, a dozen more set to open through October.
- Some good early snowfalls in Western North America.
Snow (well, a bit)! Down to 1500m in a few places in The Alps today; mainly to the South and East of the region, with scattered snow across the area for the next few days although with the snow line rising to around 2500m by the start of next week.
There is much more detail of the snow around the world in the full version of J2Ski's Where to Ski in October 2015 online.
As the snows become more regular this month, we'll be switching back to our customary weekly snow reports - so look out for those around the middle of the month.

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.
