If you’re tempted by the spring skiing in our Top 10 Ski Resorts for Late Season Snow, the good news is that although the warm weather has had an effect on the snow at some of the lower European resorts, conditions are still very good on the whole. And after this brief glimpse of spring a sudden return to winter is expected later in the week so we should see good snow conditions for a while.
The snow in America is also very good at the moment. It’s especially cold on the east coast which is preserving the snow that fell in last week’s big storm.
Germany – Excellent conditions can still be found across Germany following snowfalls at the end of last week, with more expected this week. Conditions are particularly good at Garmish and Obertsdorf, with the most snow forecast for Feldberg. Find cheap flights to Munich and Friedrichshafen.
Switzerland – Lots of fresh snow is forecast later in the week in Switzerland. And in the meantime, although it is warm and cloudy good skiing conditions are reported, particularly in Zermatt, Anzere and Wengen. Find cheap flights to Geneva and Zurich.
USA – Down in Colorado all the resorts are reporting great skiing and on the east coast there are great conditions at Sugarbush, with 12 cm of snow forecast. Temperatures are an uber freezing -14˚C though so make sure you wrap up warm. Find cheap flights to the USA.
Norway – Snow fell over the weekend across most of Norway. The most snow fell at Geilo (80/80cm) on Monday when 15cm of new snow was reported. The resort is now reporting powder conditions across the resort following 22cm of new snow since Saturday. Light snow is expected to carry on falling throughout the week so conditions will be continuously topped up.
