Prolongued summer heat in the Alps decimates European Glaciers

Summer skiing on Europe's glaciers is severly limited at the moment after the exceptionally long period of high temperatures melted away a substantial part of the snow and ice cover and left exposed granite rock surfaces. The Molltal glacier is now the third of seven Alpine glaciers -open for summer skiing- that has been forced to cease snowsports recently.

The snowiest skiresort in the Alps

When it comes to skiing, one thing you really do need over anything else, is snow.

There is no question, however, that the c-factor is a force to be reckoned with...

Zürs gets close to ten metres on average every winter season -double the average of Val d’Isere-, and Lech manages a still-impressive seven metres. Is Lech-Zürs the Eldorado of deep powder? The Arlberg skiarena is famous around the world as a …

Currently doing a season in Morzine. Fantastic all-round resort. Has to be said if you want to ski hard and fast for the week, Avoriaz is by far the better location. The bubble-car and two slow chairlifts are the only way to Avoriaz (with the excepti..

Maybe the last dumpalert of the season?

Up to metre of snow fell in parts of the Austrian Alps last week. This week, there could be just as much as another cold front moves down from the north and settles over the region. It will also become much colder mid-week, especially on the northern side of the Alps, where snow could fall well into the valleys. However, the heaviest snowfalls over the next few days are likely to be in higher parts of the central Alps, including resorts such as Passo Tonale, Madesimo, St Moritz, Obergurgl, St..
