Snow Report 25 January 2015 - Europe & Japan


Happo One 21.01.15 [Source: FB page]

Last weekend was very very snowy in the Japanese mountains, with Niigata copping the most of the snow. Everywhere got some, however.

A follow-up dump arrived across most regions on the 20th January, and since then there have been some small snowfalls through midweek (Myokokogen, Niseko).

Snow will be falling for Niseko this coming week, particularly in the middle of the week. On Honshu, it may start a bit warm (ra*n) turning to snow midweek.

Happo One: 290cm@1400m, 160cm@850m

Bonjour! There was great snow last weekend - Chamonix got half a metre. But things have slowed down again this week.

The forecast follow-up snow in France didn't really eventuate, with only the Southern French Alps getting a dusting in midweek.

There may be a little snow in the Northern Alps in the coming days, with some significant falls forecast for the end of the month. Lets hope the forecasts are right this time!

After a slow start to the season, particularly compared to last year, it was Italy's turn to shine.

The last week has seen quite a lot of snow, up to half a metre in the west and locally a lot more (an extra 1.3 metres being reported at Madesimo since my last post!).

The new snow has begun to show in the snow depths being reported by the resorts. This has also meant more terrain, lifts and runs open.

A little snow in the west in the next few days, with the end of the week looking promising for another dump.

Monte Rosa (Gressoney-la-Trinite): 190/50cm
Madesimo: 430/230/170cm
Madonna di Campiglio: 165cm@2250m, 65cm@1500m
Val Gardena: 90cm@2500m, 10cm@1400m
