The Alps have been transformed by the first solid snowfall over the last two or three days and for some higher resorts there is already enough snow for a good early base.
Prato Nevoso and the Stubai glacier both claim around 100cm of new snow, while the Hintertux glacier claims around 80cm. Other areas that have done very well with 40-80cm of new snow at altitude include the Dolomites, Livigno, and south-eastern Switzerland. More generally, the Alps saw between 10cm and 40cm of new snow above 2000m. What’s more, it will stay cool this week with further flurries at times and some more significant snow for the northern half of the Alps (e.g. Kitzbühel, St Anton, Engelberg, Mürren, Avoriaz) over the weekend.
