First snowfall of the season in the Alps

Delighted skiers are celebrating the first snowfall of the year in the Alps today! With as much as 30cm falling at altitudes of 2000m+ in some of the Austrian Alps and a dusting of snow gracing the peaks of the Dolomites, the Swiss Alps and a few of the mountains in France’s Savoie region, it looks like the 2018/19 ski season is getting an early start! Unfortunately, most ski areas in Europe are closed – this is actually the last day of the summer ski season on the glacier at Les 2 Alpes. The forecast calls for warmer weather over the next few days, but even if there’s not enough snow to take to the slopes this week, let’s hope this is a good omen for the upcoming winter season!

We can't wait for the beginning of ski season!

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!
