But the new snow didn’t come alone as high winds and increased avalanche risk closed a number of lifts and slopes. Did you catch this viral video of a chairlift in Italy?

Further north, Pyha Ski Resort in Finland saw 51cm overnight Saturday into Sunday. Small in comparison with the recent snowfall in the Alps but when you have an annual average snowfall between November and April of 63cm then it’s a massive event.

Wildcat, New Hampshire on the East Coast of the USA also saw heavy snowfall the past 3-4 days. The 72cm which fell constituted almost 20% of the annual snowfall and made for great conditions for the annual ‘Cat Scratch Fever’ competition.
