It's snowing again in France, Switzerland and Austria, with weather forecasters predicting this weekend could see a few dozen centimetres of the white stuff. It's the western part of Austria that's getting the majority of the snow, with thick flurries in the Arlberg and surrounding regions that are projected to continue until tomorrow morning. By Sunday the snow is expected to move over to the southern Alps.
By the end of the weekend weather should be a little calmer in the Alps, with the sun returning and temperatures chilly - perfect weather for enjoying the fresh powder in the newly opened ski resorts! This weekend marks the start of ski season in the ski resorts of Skicircus Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn, Schlick 2000, Alta Badia, Schmittenhöhe and Gastein, among others.
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!
