Weekly Snow Report - Tuesday 01 September
The week ahead
Here is our quick guide to where to ski in September.
This is the month in which the new ski season begins to show the very first signs of getting underway in the Alps, and the rest of the Northern Hemisphere.
Summer skiing is pretty much over and after a brief closure period the first of the high glacier ski areas begin to re-open for long seasons through to spring next year.
How well winter 2015-16 will start remains to be seen as after a long hot summer, glacier snow cover is generally very thin, although there was a dusting of fresh snow last week, and cooler temperatures are in the forecast.
There’s not normally anywhere open in North America but if it’s cold snowmaking may begin on the highest slopes in the Rockies aiming for an early October opening.
It’s also the month when most ski areas in the southern hemisphere close at the end of their winter’s. In most cases 20-15 has been a good one. After a slow start there have been huge snowfalls in South America and Australia and New Zealand’s slopes are also in good shape after regular top ups of the white stuff.
- Snow returns to the Alps after a long hot summer as first autumn glacier openings near.
- More huge snowfalls in South America set up resorts for remainder of season.
- 2015-16 ski season scheduled to start on glaciers in the Alps from mid-September.
- Big Australian snowfalls for end of August.
- Strong El Nino forecast for Pacific may mean huge snowfalls next winter in North America... we hope.
- Superb conditions in Chile

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.
