There’s been fresh snow in the Alps over the weekend according to reports on skiinfo.co.uk.

Powder alarms for more than 20cm (eight inches) of new snow in 24 hours were generates by still-open ski areas from north-to-south and east-to-west of Europe’s main ski mountain range – good news for anyone still planning to hit the slopes at one of the several hundred ski areas still open.

It’s not been your average ski season for snow fall – if there ever is such a thing.  The Alps had record breaking snow in January and February but it has been very warm in March.  In North America, California, which had a great winter last year, had very little snow this ski season until recently and on the East Coast temperatures in the 80s Farenheit has decimated the snow at normally snowsure resorts in Vermont and Quebec.

So where’s still good?

Many of the world’s lower altitude ski areas have closed a week or two early as record-breaking warm temperatures in March in large parts of Europe and North America – approaching the high 80s Farenheit/20s Celcius has led to melt down on their slopes.  At the same time the summer-like weather has meant many people have turned early to biking and golf.
