Summer Snow in the Alps

Austria has had some snow and there’s been a dusting elsewhere. Summer snow is not unusual and has helped refresh the glaciers open for skiing.

The main snowfalls are in Austria.

At altitude in the Tirol there is more – much more.

Which is lucky as it has some glacier resorts that are open for skiing and snowboarding now, with others opening next month.

There has been some snow over in Italy.

It more usually looks like this in the summer.

Not any more, as the clearing up operation gets underway.

The ski resort Passo Stelvio reports 40cm of fresh snow at altitude.

Here at PlanetSKI we are just checking the other summer skiing resorts and will be updating shortly…
