Several Resorts in the Alps Post More Than a Metre of Snowfall in Past Week

J2SkiNews posted 15-Dec



There's been heavy snowfall in the Alps with a number of resorts reporting more than a metre of snowfall on Friday – Sunday.

Ski areas in France, Italy and Switzerland have all passed the magic metre mark combing snowfall on Sunday-Tuesday at the start of last week and the latest accumulations on Friday-Saturday.

Among the biggest totals are Vaujany in the Northern French Alps, which shares the Alpe d'Huez ski area and reports 110cm; Risoul in the Southern French Alps got 109cm and Champery in Portes du Soleil has had 103cm. In Italy La Thuile in the Aosta Valley got 105cm.

Bellwald in the Swiss Alps has reported the most snow with 1.5 metres (five feet) of snowfall.

The extreme weather has caused some issues on and off the mountains in the Alps though. FIS ski racing was cancelled at Val d'Isere on Saturday, roads were blocked in places and some resorts reported torrential rain rather than snow on lower slopes.

There's currently a bit of a lull in the snowfall but more heavy snowfall is expected from Tuesday.
