40cm of snow has fallen in central and eastern parts of the Alps. It is predicted to snow in these regions all afternoon above 1300-1800m.
The snow has been heaviest in Sölden,Obergurgl (Austria) and Val Senales, Passo Stelvio (Italy). Up to 60cm is possible above 2500m by the end of today.
There has been a few cm at altitude in French resorts such as Tignes and Val Thorens.
This is a positive sign in terms of how conditions during the early season will pan out in general. It is good news for the glaciers to, especially the eastern ones such as Hintertux, Mölltal, Pitztal, Sölden and Passo Stelvio, all of which should present excellent skiing conditions once skies clear.
