After the worst conditions in the western alps – its great to report that the Alps now have some amazing conditions thanks to a meter of new snow and some cold conditions.

Issued at 28 Oct 2016

This is our first official forecast for the 2017 ski season. To make our life a lot easier the weather is being generally boring – dry mild autumnal with only the Canada getting any real snow.

It of course way too early to predict how the 2017 Ski Season will eventually turn out.


Europe – Alps

Currently most of central Europe under a large high pressure that is blocking any significant precipitation, this will continue for the beginning of next week.
