Snow Starts Accumulating in the Alps Again – Up To 70cm in 24 Hours Reported

J2SkiNews posted 10-Dec



Snow depths have started building in the Alps again as conditions turned wintry once more of Monday morning following a largely dry and sunny period over the past fortnight.

Within 24 hours some resorts had reported 70cm (28 inches) of snow had fallen with the biggest accumulations reported in the Swiss Valais and Bernese Oberland regions, followed by ski areas in Northwestern Austria, and also some areas in the Northern French Alps.

Gstaad was the resort posting the biggest snowfalls stats, followed by fellow Swiss Valais ski area Lotschental, which says it received 67cm (27 inches) of snowfall since Monday morning.

Lech Zurs in the Arlberg region (pictured above today) topped the fresh snow tallies in Austria with 50cm (20 inches), a little ahead of neighbour St Anton with 40cm (16 inches).

In France ski areas in the Chamonix region including les Contamines and Chamonix itself reported 30cm (a foot) of snowfall in the same period.

J2Ski forecasts now expect there to be a general lull with only light snowfall, if any, over the next few days but another front bringing heavy snow at the weekend, just as the first charter flights for 19-20 season package holidays come in.

Base depths have already hit 4m (13.3 feet) in the Italian Alps following very heavy November snowfall.

Lotschental is the name of the valley, the ski area is actually called Lauchernalp. It's a very snowy place with lots of off piste, unfortunately it doesn't officially open until the 19th https://www.loetschental.ch/en/winter/ski-arena
