Weekly Snow Report - Thursday 26 February

The week ahead

Hello again,

Ooh look, it's been snowing again. And next week it's going to snow some more...

This Week’s Headlines

- Up to 1.7m (nearly six feet) of new snow in the Pyrenees.

- Up to 85cm (nearly three feet) of new snow in the Rockies.

- Up to 1m (over three feet) of new snow on Scottish slopes.

- Up to 90cm (three feet) of new snow in the Alps.

- Much needed snow falls in California, as well as in the Dolomites.

- Almost as much snow expected again in coming week.

- Resorts in France, Italy and Switzerland reporting joint world’s deepest snowpascks at 4.8m (16 feet)

The last week of February has been one of the snowiest weeks of the season, and certainly the snowiest of the month in many areas of the northern hemisphere. Most resorts in the Alps have had significant snowfall, with once again the Western and southern alps getting the most, although this time the area covered has stretched further north. Bigger snowfalls still have been reported in the Pyrenees. The Dolomites, which much of the big snowfalls have missed this season so far, got up to around a foot of snow too. There have also been significant snowfalls in Scotland, with one area estimating around a metre of fresh snow has fallen on their slopes this week.

Across the Atlantic it has been a fifth snowy week in a row for New England but there have also been significant snowfalls in the Rockies and even further west in California where it’s particularly needed this winter.

Compared to last year

A quick review of current snow depths against the last two seasons (all available on J2Ski's snow history pages) shows that the season has recovered well from a late start, and some areas now have more snow than a year earlier.

In the French Pyrenees, impressive bases (exceeding 3m) are deeper than the same time last year. The French and Swiss Alps have comparable snow levels at altitude, although snow at low levels is still below average in places. Austrian areas are similar, but with notable exceptions like St.Anton where snow depths are well ahead of a year ago. In Italy, the Aosta Valley is reporting similar depths (to last season), although the Dolomites are generally a bit behind.

In The Forecast!

All the current forecast models are indicating that widespread snows will continue across The Alps and Pyrenees into the next week, and there is now a possibility that the effects of a forecast move in the Jetstream will bring further cold and snow in from the East in 10 days time. In other words; there's no sign of the snow stopping yet and late-season prospects are looking good at this point!
