2014 Ski Season Snow Report
The 2014 Ski Season has arrived with more fresh snow to come across our resorts in Europe!
Andorra has seen some of the best snow conditions in Europe so far this season, and for the most part has very good snow levels across both Vallnord and Grandvalira. Vallnord received a light dusting of snow on Monday to top an already impressive snow depth, and Grandvalira received a significant dumping of snow recently. Both Vallnord and Grandvalira are reporting good skiing conditions for the upcoming 2014 ski season as you can see below.
The French Alps have experienced low temperatures and fresh snow giving rise to some excellent piste skiing. Synonymous with great snow coverage and perfectly groomed pistes, resorts such as St Gervais and Chatel Porte du Soleil are up and running with even the lower slopes there receiving fresh snow giving beginner students an excellent introduction into the world of ski. The weeks ahead for these resorts promises further fresh snow and cool temperatures.
This season Austria has struggled with snow full-stop across all resorts, however Ski Adaptable are pleased to confirm that the pistes in our resorts Axamer Lizum, Kitzbuhel, Zell am See, BKK and Ski Juwel have all been topped up this week. Kitzbuhelhas experienced good snow to upper slopes, but softer snow to lower slopes so far this season, however falling temperatures across Austria combined with fresh snow falls is set to see all of our featured Austrian school ski resorts experience excellent skiing conditions from this week. With the cold spell in Austria predicted to be extended, there will be more snow to come for resorts such as Zell am See featured below.
Like the French Alps, the Italian Alps and Dolomites are in great shape following significant fresh snow and lower temperatures in the past week. With the weekend approaching resorts such as Folgaria and Passo Tonale are expecting to receive up to 35-45cm of fresh snow in both high and low areas giving a good mid mountain base for both resorts. The weeks ahead promise further fresh snow and with temperatures staying cool the snow conditions in Italy look to remain impressive for the upcoming 2014 ski season.
Heavy snow at our featured Swiss resorts this week has greatly improved conditions with the big winner being Leysin receiving 60cm of fresh snow fall. Switzerland has had a snow makeover in the past week and the snow conditions are much improved, especially the lower pistes of the lower resorts such as Chateau d’Oex in the Gstaad Valley receiving up to 30 cm of snow. Snow depths still remain below last winter but that may soon change as the forecast for the week ahead promises more snow with temperatures cooling.
