Weekly Snow Report - Thursday 04 February
The week ahead
Our first February Snow Report is a bit of corker! We're excited...
- Big resorts in the Alps report up to 60cm+ snowfalls in 24 hour periods over the last few days.
- Biggest total snowfall this season, at Alyeska in Alaska, nears 12metres.
- Storm boosts snow cover at some Scottish areas, diminishes it at others.
- Up to 1.2m of fresh snow in 7 days reported by resorts in the Swiss Alps.
- Still little fresh snow in the southern Alps or Dolomites.
- Up to a metre of snow this week in Western North America
It has been a mostly snowy week in the alps, although yo-yoing temperatures took rain to quite high altitudes at times, and milder days have been interspersed with snow to levels below 1,000m.
Elsewhere in Europe it has been more of the same (lack of snow) in the Dolomites and Eastern Europe and nothing fresh in the Pyrenees but all are forecast to get some healthy falls in the next week.
Scandinavia has seen some big dumps and in Scotland it’s a mixed picture with some areas re-opening after the thaw and others not.
Across the Atlantic it has also been more of the same; huge snowfalls in the West once again, not much in the East.
As if the headlines weren't enough, it's the forecast for next week that's really piqued our interest!
Although there is still some uncertainty as to the detail, this weekend should see the last warm day on Saturday before temperatures take a dip and snow moves in on Sunday. For some areas - particularly the North and West Alps - this is beginning to look like a major 3 or 4 day storm with heavy snow, but very strong winds at times. Snow continues to be a feature through next week, and throughout the following week (usual caveats apply - that's too far ahead to be certain, but it looks good!).
What marks out the currently forecast snow for next week, however, is that it includes significant snowfall for all the main European mountain ranges; The Alps (of course), French and Spanish Pyrenees, and the Dolomites are ALL in the firing line. In fact, it's proving difficult to find a European ski area without snow in the forecast...
If you are travelling this weekend, please check the forecast. Although Saturday (currently) looks reasonably clear, Sunday's forecast snow storms will disrupt travel across a wide area.
We would also expect there to be some lift closures and occasional white-outs due to high winds and blizzard conditions.
If you're heading out for half-term later this month, or the weeks either side, you might want to be practicing your smug look...

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.
