skier.powder.JPGHeavy snowfalls have hit the eastern Alps with falls of up to half a meter reported. In North America, the east coast has been enjoying huge snow dumps of up to a meter, on an already strong base.

Austria – the last 7 days have seen heavy snow fall across many of Austria’s ski resorts, with base depths rising to over a meter in some places. Due to this new snow, the powder conditions are excellent at the moment, though avalanche danger is also high, so be wary of venturing into the backcountry at present.
