Italy Snow Forecast and Report to January 12th, 2018

STORY BY Patrick Thorne 5th January 2018

It has been a very snowy start to the New Year in Italy. 

Western Italian ski areas were hit hard by Storm Eleanor on the 3rd-4th January with resorts including Aosta Valley ski centres completely closing their ski slopes for a while as extreme weather hit.

There hasn’t been quite so much snow in the Dolomites although it remains the best start to the season for four seasons, and the coming week should see some big snowfalls with heavy snow expected from Monday, possibly as much as 50cm in 24 hours in some places.

Snow depths are very good for this early in the season across Italy and the best for four years or more almost everywhere. It’s a ski area called Campo Imperatore in the Abruzzo region that has the country’s deepest base (and Europe’s second deepest) at 4m, with Sella Nevea in the East in second place with a 3m base then the Passo Tonale glacier (above) at 2.5m in third.
