SNOW NEWS UPDATED 23 OCTOBER 2017

INTRODUCTION Conditions in the Alps finally changed this past weekend, bringing significant cloud and snowfall in some areas to end an extended period of clear skies, with the snow still falling in many places, impacting some resort openings. France, Italy, Switzerland all experienced light snowfalls, with Austria receiving the largest falls. These conditions are expected to ease off tonight, leaving mostly clearer skies during the coming week, though new weather systems are forecast to bring snow once again by the weekend.

AUSTRIA The Austrian resorts experienced the most significant snowfalls of the Alps on Sunday and continued during Monday 23rd October. The continuing snowfall has impacted lift operations in many resorts, with Dachstein (40cm), and Molltal (100cm) while visibility is uniformly poor in the resorts that are open. However, rising temperatures and clearing cloud should make way for excellent conditions moving into the week. Currently, next weekend is forecast to bring further snow, ranging from Friday to the following Monday.
