Calm returns to the European snow system after significant amounts of snow last week. There will still be light snowfall across most parts of the Alps and Pyrenees this week but it will be nowhere near as heavy as last week. It will be an excellent week to ski after the partial closures of many resorts last week.
Light snow is forecast to fall in Scandinavia and Bulgaria but other parts of Eastern Europe will not receive any much-needed fresh snow. Many Scottish resorts are forecast to receive lots of snow this week so if you have the chance then head to the Scottish Highlands for a weekend ski.
Across the Atlantic, the heavy snowfall from the first couple of months of the year has eased off but some decent amounts of snow have still fallen and conditions are excellent. Heavy snow fell in some parts of the US and Canada last week, in particular in Banff, but this week will see most areas receive only moderate snow. Japanese resorts will also only see minimal amounts of fresh snow but after some recent snowfall conditions are now reasonable in the country.
Based on current weather forecasts for the next ten days, the top three resorts for expected snowfall are:
Geilo (Norway) – 129cm
Glencoe (Scotland) – 84cm
Nevis Range (Scotland) – 84cm
