Weekly Snow Report - Thursday 16 April
The week ahead
Welcome to what will be, barring unforeseen major snowfall, our final Weekly Report for the 2014/15 ski season. Starting next month we'll revert to our usual Monthly round-up of worldwide conditions until the snows come again to the Northern Hemisphere.
- No snow reported in the Alps this week - first time this year!
- Over a foot of new snow at Whistler.
- Heavy pre-season snowfall in New Zealand.
- Mt Baker re-opens.
- Powder snow conditions in Riksgransen
- Over two feet of snow in past 48 hours in Utah.
As we enter the latter half of April the rate of closure of northern hemisphere ski areas is gathering pace and by the end of this weekend more than 90% will have ended their 2014-15 ski seasons.
The past seven days have been the first when no snow at all has been reported in the Alps, after a few centimetres were recorded in the high Swiss Alps at the end of last week. Some fresh snow is forecast for the coming week however.
But that’s not to say the season is over if you want to keep skiing. Plenty of areas sill have a month or more of the season left and of those, heavy snow has been reported in the past few days at Whistler, Snowbird in Utah and Riksgransen in the Swedish north, for example. Excitement is also starting to build for the 2015 ski season in the southern hemisphere where, following a snow covering in Australia, the snow was deep enough to make a few turns on slopes in New Zealand this week (for those prepared to walk up).
After the warmth of the last week, temperatures will cool dramatically in the East of the Alps for a few days, with several wet-weather systems crossing the region. Expect fresh snow at high altitude (Zermatt, we're looking at you) and good Spring conditions elsewhere.
Check the J2Ski Forecasts regularly for the latest updates, and remember to check with the local Tourist Office before traveling, as many ski areas are now shut, or about to do so (and they don't always tell us!).
There is much more detail of the snow around the world in the full version of our J2Ski Snow Report - April 16th 2015 online.
Well, no, not actually the wind but our forecasts... We know that some of you have experienced some strangeness with our forecasts this winter and we're working hard to improve them over the summer.
If you're going to be in the mountains (anywhere in the world) in the next six months and would like to give us feedback on our new forecasts during that time... please drop an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know where you'll be.
Have fun, and stay safe!
Until next week,
Please forward this email to anyone who might be interested - thank you!
