Guten Tag from the beautiful Italian Dolomites where the snow has been falling for 24 hours now ... and is expected to continue.Val Gardena 17 January 2014
We've had 20cms of snow in Val Gardena (65/165cms) today capping a brilliant week of skiing and riding.
The Dolomiti are deserving of their reputation for stunning scenery - they have certainly cast a spell over the last week.Alta Badia 15 January 2014
The run of warm, sunny conditions came to an end on Monday and Tuesday in the French and Italian Alps.
From 20-50cms of snow fell across the southern Alps on Monday/Tuesday. Once again, resorts such as Madesimo (290/380cms) scored big again.
After a couple of days of clear, sunny conditions, the snow began again yesterday.
Once again, the southern Alps have scored the best snowfalls, that's the Italian and southern French Alps.
Snow will continue to fall through this weekend and on and off next weekend making for excellent conditions.
