February Half-Term Snow Report

Are you waking up at a European ski resort this morning? Perhaps you are in the French Alps, the Pyrenees or somewhere in Scandinavia? Well, if you’re wondering what the weather is up to in the next seven days we’ve got you covered!

Austria

The home of Alpine skiing has had an insane amount of snow this year. With many resorts cut off in January due to avalanches blocking the roads, it has been a tricky start to the year for many resorts in the Alps.

But February is reaping the rewards of January’s snowfall, with warm weather and sun forecast for the next seven days and up to 360cm of snow on top of Valluga (and other high points) the conditions really are perfect! If you are staying in the Arlberg region why not read our complete guide.

France

Ski Salom

Large sections of the French Alps had a good top-up of snow last week, with up to 40cm falling in places. The weather for this week should be warm, with a mix of sunshine and clouds.

Schools in France stagger their holidays but many children will be off this week so expect the slopes to be busy!

Italy

Skiing Butter!

Italy has seen around 10-25cm of fresh snowfall in the past week but the sun will return for February half-term. With ample snow across all the Italian mountains, the conditions really couldn’t get much better.

There is no expected snowfall this week and limited cloud cover, so be sure to take plenty of suncream with you on the slopes!

Pyrenees

Andorra have also had a lot of snow fall this season so the slopes are in fantastic condition. With new snow laying as recent as last week and sunshine forecast for the coming seven days we cannot think of a better place to be right now!

Switzerland

Switzerland is much the same as the rest of the Alps, there is plenty of snow covering all the slopes and the next week is set to be incredibly sunny.

It really is a great time to be skiing in the Alps!

North America

Both Canada and the United States are experiencing epic skiing conditions, with great coverage and plenty of new snow it is an awesome time to be on the slopes.

But be sure to wrap up with many resorts such as Breckenridge and Whistler forecasted to drop well in to double figures below zero!

Sweden

Romme Alpin Forest Skiing

Snowfall was a little slow for many Swedish resorts at the start of the season but a good January has helped to correct this. The weather has also warmed up from the lows of -25 Celcius that hit Northern resorts in early February.

Both the Northern and Central resorts can expect a mixture of cloud and sun throughout the week with new snow coming around Wednesday. Åre is likely to be windy again towards the end of the week with rain a potential threat, but piste conditions are good overall.

Norway

Norway Skiing

Norway, as ever, has plenty of snow coverage with some resorts reporting upward of two meters. Weather forecasts show some new snow moving in towards the middle of the week with overcast conditions forecast for the rest of halfterm. Piste conditions should be very good.
