A Very Good Friday | Snow Report

Substantial snow is falling in parts of the Alps and Pyrenees as a big storm rolls through Easter weekend, turning spring scenes very wintry with up to 150cm of fresh snow due

For the most part, Austria, France and Andorra will miss out on this spring storm, but pick up 15-20cm of new snow over the Easter weekend. Piste conditions will remain in great shape.

The exceptions will be La Plagne and Alpe d’Huez, France which are forecast to receive 30-40cm.

Italy, Switzerland and the French and Spanish Pyrenees are set to receive significantly more snowfall.

Grand Tourmalet, France; Zermatt, Switzerland; and Formigal, Spain are forecast to receive 85-90cm.

Gavarnie, France; Gressoney, Italy; and the Aletsch Arena and Saas Fee, Switzerland could see 1m of new snow and Macugnaga, Italy could enjoy 1.5m of fresh snow.

But with such dramatic snowfall in such a short space of time the avalanche risk will rise to 4 or 5. So heed all warnings and be careful out there.

The cold weather continues in Finland, Norway and Sweden with temperatures between 0C and -10C and sunshine and 5-15cm forecast through Monday.

The freezing level will climb to 3,000m across much of Central and Eastern Europe bringing sunshine, freeze thaw conditions, double digit temperatures, and the chance of rainfall down low.

The East Coast of the USA will see cooler temperatures and sunshine over the Easter weekend.

The Mountain States of the US will continue to enjoy cold temperatures and snowfall bringing 25-35cm of new snow through Monday.

The Western US states of Oregon, Washington and Alaska will see 15-20cm of new snow.

Whistler Blackcomb will see light rain below 1,500m and light snowfall and sunshine in the alpine.

After a spike in temperature and rainfall on Friday the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido will return to below freezing conditions and 10-15cm of new snow through Monday.

The freezing level will rise to 2,500m on Honshu bringing heavy rainfall and double digit temperatures at village level through Monday and a sprinkling of new snow in the alpine.

News From Around the Ski World 

After snowfall across much of the Alps yesterday with more on the way for parts of Italy, Switzerland and the Pyrenees, it’s going to be a very Good Friday.

And Saturday. And Easter Sunday. And beyond…

The last major holiday of the 2023/24 winter season is set to be eggs-ellent with extensive coverage on and off-piste combined with new snow, warmer temperatures and sunshine.

Editor Nicola was in the Portes du Soleil today, which saw 15-20cm of fresh snow over 48 hours.

She reports: “It came in with a little wind, so the off-piste is still a little hit and miss and needs to be approached safely for now. But the new snow has definitely renewed all the pistes ahead of the warmer final month of the season.”
