This week started off with a dusting of fresh snow in the Alps, and the freezing altitude continues to creep lower and lower. After the snow the sun came out again, so we hereby present a string of beautiful pictures of snowy slopes with blue skies!
This time the snow didn't restrict itself to just one country: Austria, Italy, Switzerland and France all received their fair share of powder, as did many of the lower-lying ski areas. A few more centimetres are expected on Wednesday - it looks like this might be finally full-on winter in the Alps! If you're itching to get back on the slopes, why not start off ski season with the Snowplaza Ski Opening in Gurgl? We'll be throwing a huge bash with parties, activities and of course first tracks on this year's snow!

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!
