Skiers and snowboarders in the Alps are rejoicing (and not a bit surprised) after last night's snowfall, which brought up to a metre of fresh snow to some places. The snow started in the French Alps and has been moving eastwards towards Switzerland and Italy to douse ski areas as far as the Dolomites in fresh powder just in time for the end of the ski season. Austria and the Northern Alps aren't expecting nearly as much snow but after the insane snowfalls they experienced earlier this season that news might come as a relief.
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!
