Fresh Snow in the Alps – It’s a Powder Day (Yes, it’s September)

STORY BY Patrick Thorne 13th September 2017

Austria’s Molltal Glacier has reported 20cm of fresh snowfall overnight and this morning has blue skies for perfect powder conditions for the last week of summer 2017 – its great when we hear of fresh snow in the alps!

The Molltal (pictured top at 8.30am this morning) is one of seven glacier ski areas currently open in the Alps and Scandinavia, most of which have received good snowfalls over the first two weekends of September, with more forecast for the coming few days.

It’s very good news after the long hot summer in the Alps when most of the old snow cover on Europe’s glaciers was melted away and the Molltal was one of two centres that had to temporarily close in late August due to lack of snow.

The most recent snow has been falling down to lower elevations (2000m)

Three more glacier ski areas – the Stubai and Pitztal glaciers in Austria and Val Senales in Italy – are due to open for their 2017-18 ski seasons later this week. Solden opened last weekend.
