Snow Overview - Italy (snow news updated 15-Apr-2014)
Warm and sunny weather continues to dominate in Italy. As always the higher resorts have the best of the snow. Cervinia (35/295cm) has great spring snow on its upper slopes. It’s still completely connected with neighbouring Zermatt, in Switzerland and they also have great spring conditions.
Another area with good skiing at the moment is Passo Tonale (60/600cm). Their upper base depth, on the Presena Glacier, is fantastic and ensures they’ll be skiing well into June up there. Lower down the snow is typically spring-like but you can still ski back down into the town.
European Weather Outlook
The weather this week across the majority of European resorts is for mostly sunny weather before clouds build on Easter Sunday. Any snow that does fall next week will be on the higher slopes as the freezing level will be around 2,500m.
Austria is the exception though as cloudy skies are expected to dominate this week. The good news is that the freezing level could dip down to below 1,500m this week so fresh snow could fall. Next week will see it climb back above 2,500m and the precipitation will be mostly wet.
