Snowfalls for Europe

02. November 2018
Throughout the end of October and beginning of November the Alps have seen some big snowfalls.

Bormio in Italy has reported the most snow so far with 1.8 metres (6 feet) since Sunday, 28th November.

Over the border in Switzerland the recently opened for the 18-19 season Diavolezza glacier near St Moritz in the Swiss Engadin region reports 175cm of snowfall – nearly six feet.

The Passo Stelvio ski area in Italy, was due to be in the final week of its six month 2018 summer ski season, but has closed early after 1.5 metres of snow fell there and the road through the pass was closed until next spring.
Then in Austria glaciers like Kitzsteinhorn, Hintertux, Molltal, Solden and Stubai have reported 50-70cm of snow.

As a result several October powder alarms have been issued and resorts due to open in just 2-3 weeks' time from mid-November like Obergurgl and Val Thorens are also excited to see their bases building.

There’s been snowfall in the Dolomites, Pyrenees, Scandinavia, Eastern Europe and Scotland too thanks to cold air moving down from the Arctic, crossing Europe and meeting the warm air that had been sitting over much of the continent.
