From the outside, it seems there was a fairer distribution of snow this year than other years. Quite a lot of snow has fallen from late December onwards, but there have been notable mild weather at times, which has left some lower slopes in particular with snow shortages at times. The other notabl

Alps Weather Forecast 27 March 2015

[size=4][font=arial]I must start by expressing the shock of the terrible events of the plane crash over the Alps earlier this week. The whole event is a terrible tragedy and our thoughts go out to all those effected. [b]Summary[/b] Moving on to the far less important matter of snow in the Alps, it has been a rather mixed week, with further snow at higher slopes, and much milder conditions lower down, In many ways classic early spring conditions.

Alps Weather Forecast 28 February 2015

[size=4][font=arial][b]Summary[/b][/font][/size] There has been further snow this week, and conditions are generally very good with abundant powder.
