France – several ski resorts in the French Alps received snow over the weekend, (e.g. Tinges and Val d’Isere enjoyed around 20cm of fresh fall). France is expecting heavy snow (1 meter plus!) over most of the country this week, which should mean that powder skiing and snowboarding is back on the menu for next week.

Austria – more snow falling on much of Austria over the weekend, providing a welcome top up in resorts like St Anton and Obertauern. More snow is forecast for this week, so there should be some good powder conditions by the weekend. Find cheap flights to Innsbruck and Salzburg.
