Snow Update: The Next 48 Hours

Meribel

 

The next 48 hours in the Alps is shaping up to be pretty great for skiers with the top European resorts in line for some serious snow.

 

Four French resorts (Alpe d’Huez, Chamonix, La Rosiere and Les Arcs) are forecast to get more than 90cms of snow – or 3 feet in old money – in the next two days!

 

However these resorts are not hogging all of the snow, with the rest of the Alps getting much more than just a healthy dusting, with the main resorts in France all forecast to see over 50cms!

 

France
Alpe d’Huez – 91cms
Chamonix – 108cms
Courchevel – 78cms
La Plagne – 53cms
La Rosiere – 94cms
Les Arcs – 91cms
Les Deux Alpes – 87cms
Meribel – 76cms
Tignes – 78cms
Val d’Isere – 71cms
Val Thorens – 68cms

 

Austria
Lech – 72cms
Mayrhofen – 30cms
St. Anton – 66cms

 

Switzerland
Nendaz – 79cms
Verbier – 86cms
Zermatt – 80cms

 

Although Austria appears to have the least impressive snow forecast in contrast to the other countries, they’re hardly getting short changed. On top of the above snow, all the resorts are reporting healthy snow levels already (upper and lower piste levels: St. Anton 105cms/30cms | Lech 85cms/55cms | Mayrhofen 135cms/20cms).

 

Looking at the Swiss resorts of Nendaz and Verbier, they have welcomed 35cms in the past week with an additional 80cms or so on its way, with Zermatt due a rather ridiculous 172cms in the 9 day forecast!
