February Snow Report

If you think you’ve heard this one before, then for the most part you have.

Weather patterns across the ski & snowboard world have remained pretty constant the past three to four days with those resorts needing snowfall desperately still in need; those needing cooler temperatures remaining warm; and those in a good snow cycle continuing to receive new snowfall.

Some resorts in the Alps haven’t received any significant snowfall in almost six weeks, but thanks to great early season snowfall and sophisticated snow making systems they have been able to offer top to bottom piste skiing despite the drought.

The Nordic resorts have enjoyed a consistently cold winter to date, with regular and often massive snowfalls.

Similarly the latter half of January saw the Mountain States of the US and Canada see significant snowfall and vastly improved conditions.

Whilst Japan hasn’t received the fabled ‘Japanuary’ snow conditions it normally receives on a daily basis, there have been mini storm cycles to tell the grandchildren about.

@big_mauntain_bob from Verbier, Switzerland timed his departure from the amazing early season conditions in the 4 Valleys to the resorts and backcountry of Honshu and Hokkaido, Japan to perfection.

The sunny and dry spring-like weather continues in the Pyrenees, Andorra and southern Spain with temperatures reaching +10C at village level.

It’s to be remaining cold in Finland with temperatures between -5C and -10C and 15cm of snowfall forecast through Monday for Ruka.

Both Norway and Sweden can expect 10-20cm of snowfall through Monday with Narvik, Norway forecast to receive 70cm up high and Myrkdalen, Norway over a metre. Are, Sweden should see between 45-55cm of new snow but expect high winds and lift closures.

While most of Central and Eastern Europe will see sunny and dry conditions for the most part with below freezing temperatures, the Slovakian resort of Jasna is forecast to receive 20-25cm of new snow.

Further east, the Georgian and Turkish resorts will remain cold with 5-10cm of new snowfall through Monday, before a major storm system is set to blanket Georgia.

It’s going to be another wild few days at the Scottish resorts with high winds most probably forcing lift closures.

The East Coast of the US can expect 5-10cm of new snow with temperatures well below freezing.

The Mountain States of the US will see below freezing temperatures and 5-10cm of new snow, with Vail, Colorado set to receive a very welcome 20-25cm.

The western states of the US will see a drop in temperatures and 5-10cm of new snow in Oregon and Washington. California is going to get pounded with Mammoth forecast to receive between 75-85cm of fresh snow.

Eastern Canada can expect 5-10cm of new snow and temperatures well below freezing.

The mountain provinces of Alberta and BC will see temperatures well below freezing and 5-10cm of new snow.

On Japan’s main island of Honshu most resorts will receive 15-20cm of new snow.
