1st November 2021

November has started with some snow and it’s set to get heavier and more widespread later in the week. 19 resorts already have some terrain open in Europe, with a handful of resorts open in the USA. PlanetSKI is preparing to head out to the Alps. LIVE UPDATED

The snow started to fall over the weekend in parts of the southern French and western Italian Alps.

Some areas have seen up to 30cm of new snow in this first weather front.

With temperatures set to fall this week it looks like the first significant snowfall of the early season is happening.

It has certainly brought a smile to our faces at PlanetSKI as we are planning on visiting the Tirol in Austria next week to ski the glacier resorts around Innsbruck.

Looks like it’s going to be good in Stubai:

It’s also looking good at Cervinia in the Aosta Valley that already has some slopes open up on its glacier.

PlanetSKI will be in Cervinia in mid-December.

Ahead of that we are in Val Thorens in France for its opening weekend on November 20th.

Things are starting to look good.

Snow is falling elsewhere in the French Alps.

“After a relative reprieve in the weather tomorrow, a new storm is set to bring further significant snow to the Alps on Wednesday and Thursday, with the heaviest falls in the west where snow may settle to relatively low altitudes for a time,” said the alpine weather expert, Fraser Wilkin, on Monday 1st November.

He closely follows the snow conditions on the web site weathertoski.co.uk .

Snow is falling in Switzerland too.

A couple more resorts,  Andermatt in Switzerland and Kitzbuhel in Austria, opened some slopes over the weekend.

We have been following the resorts opening and snow in this rolling blog on PlanetSKI:

  • More ski resorts open in the Alps

There has also been some good early season snow in California with some resorts opening weeks ahead of schedule.

  • US ski areas open early after heavy snow

Here at PlanetSKI we will be keeping an eye on the snow in the Alps in the latest storm so do check back for the latest updates…
