This week has been good for early-season and opening-day snow conditions in the Alps and Dolomites. It’s been snowing heavily across most Alpine and Dolomiti resorts since Saturday, according to a WePowder.com forecast. Snow totals range from seven to 23 inches and some areas have even counted 40 inches.
This latest snowfall will do nicely for the many resorts that are open or opening this weekend, including: Cortina, Engelberg-Titlis, Madonna di Campiglio, Saas Fee, Sölden, Tignes, Verbier and Zermatt.
Originally from the icy trails of New Jersey, I moved West to pursue powder and a career in writing and editing. Now in Aspen, Colo. and working for Ski.com managing the website and blog content, I couldn't be happier. You'll find me skiing at Aspen Mountain or Aspen Highlands in the winter and mountain biking at Snowmass in the summer.
