Webcam pics: Winter is back in the Alps!

Webcam pics: Winter is back in the Alps!

It's a beautiful sunny spring day in most of the UK but over in the Alps, winter is not quite over! The 2018/2019 ski season took Europe by storm, delivering mountains of powder and ensuring an especially long ski season. And even now, several weeks after most ski resorts have closed for the season, parts of France, Switzerland and Italy have received a fresh dump of the white stuff! Images taken from the ski resort webcams this morning show snowy scenes taken straight from a winter wonderland. Doesn't it kind of make you want to drop everything, grab your skis and head to the Alps right now?

Snowfall to move towards Austria

The snowfall today was mostly reserved for the southwestern Alps, but by tomorrow it is expected to move towards Austria. This is good news for the glaciers: Stubai Glacier and Hintertux Glacier are expecting up to 30-40cm of fresh snow! The snow line may fall as low as 1800m, but the snow at lower altitudes will probably melt fairly quickly.

Born and raised in the ski paradise of Vancouver, Canada, I learned to ski before I can remember, balancing precariously on my parents’ skis as they sailed down the hill. I started snowboarding in my teens and am now delighted to be exploring everything Europe’s ski scene has to offer!
