The past few mornings have revealed more snowfall arriving in the Alps with first the French and Italian side seeing snowfall above around 2,000m on Sunday, then more areas further East in Austria and Switzerland getting dumped on too.

Les Menuires is pictured top on Sunday morning.

For some areas these are the first snowfalls of the run-up to the 21-22 season, with the start of Autumn by the astronomical measure of the season days away. Some high areas had already had August snowfall.

Seven glacier areas are already open in Austria, Italy and Switzerland with an eighth, the Kaunertal in Austria's Tirol, opening next Saturday 25th September. It reported 15cm (6") of fresh snowfall this morning (below).

With The Pitztal, Solden and Hintertux ski areas already open, it means half of the eight resorts open in the northern hemisphere next weekend will be in Tirol region.
