Weekly Snow Report - Thursday 21 April

The week ahead


Ok, so this really is the last weekly round-up for the 15/16 Northern Hemisphere season... even though it's still snowing. We'll be back at the end of next week with the first of our monthly guides of where to ski, which we'll send you until the snows come again to the North.

Thanks for reading, and we hope you have a great summer unless you're in the Southern Hemisphere, in which case your fun is yet to begin!

This Week's Snow Headlines

- 50cm of snowfall in 24 hours on the Hintertux glacier.

- April snow storms bring up to three feet of snow to North American ski areas.

- 60cm of snowfall in 48 hours on the Stubai glacier.

- Chamonix claims base (world’s deepest) now 7.3m after another 60cm of fresh snow.

- Heavy pre-season snow reported at La Parva at Chile.

We're pleased to report that we’re going out on a high with heavy snow in Europe, North America and even the Andes to report in the last few days!

In fact, we haven’t done any actual maths, but it’s looking like April is much snowier than December was in Europe!

In The Alpine Forecast

Further significant snowfall is forecast for the final week of April with up to a metre of new snow expected on higher runs in the Alps, with falling temperatures likely to produce some fabulous conditions.

Although most ski areas have now closed in Europe, those that remain open continue to offer great skiing at altitude so get there if you can!

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.

The Snow Reports in this e-mail are for information only. Mountain Weather Systems are notoriously chaotic and any forecast beyond 48 hours is only an indication. Snow Forecasts, Snow Depths and current local Skiing Conditions change rapidly, and you should always obtain the latest, local, information before you ski.
