Snow Overview - Italy (snow news updated 20-Apr-2014)
It was mostly warm and sunny across Italy on Thursday 17th April, with only a slight dusting of snow in some north eastern resorts. Livigno (100/200cm) was one of these, receiving a centimetre or two of fresh snow earlier this week. They’ve still got a good snow base, after a snowier than usual winter with great spring conditions across the mountain.
Cervinia (35/290cm) is in very good shape too. Its upper slopes still have plenty of snow on them and north facing areas still hold some nice powder in quieter areas. All the links with Zermatt, over in Switzerland, remain open.
Snowier weather is expected to arrive this weekend, bringing around 15cm of fresh snow to the upper areas of many resorts. Cervinia’s upper slopes could do a little better though with around 40cm expected. 20cm of this could fall on Saturday 19th April.
European Weather Outlook
Predominantly cloudy weather is forecast across the European resorts over the Easter weekend and next week. The freezing level could drop to around 2,000m at the start of the weekend before rising back up to over 2,500m. The altitude of the slopes and the ski area will therefore dictate whether you can expect fresh snow or rain over this period.
