Weekly Snow Report - Friday 01 May

The week ahead

Hello and a Merry May,

This is the first of our monthly guides of where to ski and what's happening during the months of the Northern Hemisphere Summer.

Remember - you can always turn off these emails until the start of the next ski season, and we won't be in the slightest bit offended... so long as you come back again...

After a very odd winter 2014-15, more than 4,000 ski areas in the northern hemisphere closed last month (April) leaving only a select few dozen heroes to stay open in to May. With the majority of those closing after the first weekend in the month, no Southern Hemisphere destinations yet open and even some Summer and Autumn glacier ski areas taking a break, mid-May is actually the quietest period in the whole ski year with the number of open areas dropping below 20 worldwide.

But - after the exceptionally bad start to the season for snowfall in the Alps, Dolomites and Western North America, the last few weeks have seen some quite significant snowfalls on top of the bases that did eventually build, so at those few centres that are still open, May 2015 isn’t looking too bad a month for snowsports! In some cases it's better than December was in fact.

Some ski centres do remain open in most of the Northern Hemisphere’s major skiing regions, with the exception, as far as we’ve been able to ascertain, of Eastern Europe and The Pyrenees where all centres now appear to have closed for the season.

More Snowy News

There is much more detail of the snow around the world in the full version of J2Ski's Where to Ski in May 2015 online.

Next month we'll lead with the preparations for the new Ski Season in the Southern Hemisphere.

Until next month,
The j2Ski Team
