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!
