Weekly Snow Report - Monday 03 August
The week ahead
Here is our quick guide to where to ski in August.
Remember - you can always turn off these emails until the start of the next ski season!
Snow depths in the Southern Hemisphere have been building through July with good falls in virtually every major ski country at some time or other in the past month. In the Alps though there’s been almost no new snow (well, it is mid-summer) and instead it has been exceptionally warm giving freeze-thaw conditions and leaving some of the continent’s ski glaciers in a rather sorry state. The result is that snow depths are largely fairly similar on both sides of the planet as levels south of the equator increase and those to the north decrease a little.
There’s also not a lot of change in the number of ski areas open as fresh centres have been opening to counter those like Val d’Isere, Whistler and Norway’s Stryn which have already ended their brief summer ski openings.
- Big July snowfalls for Australia, Argentina, Chile and (comparatively!) Southern Africa!
- Hot in the Alps - no fresh snow since June.
- July snowfall in the Rockies.
- Tignes finishes its summer skiing but Saas Fee re-opens for a 9 month season to next spring.
There is much more detail of the snow around the world in the full version of J2Ski's Where to Ski in August 2015 online.
We have a lot of new developments underway for when the snows return to the North... if you want to see what's cooking, or add your own idea, please head over to the J2Ski Feedback Area.
Until next month,
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.
