Snow & Weather

SNOW IS BACK IN FRANCE

PlanetSKI is in France as finally the snow has begun falling. It follows a dispute about conditions on piste. UPDATED

WHERE’S THE FRESH SNOW?

In Austria with more on the way. In France none is forecast & it’s patchy in Switzerland & Italy. Plus we hear from Alaska.

LES2ALPES CANCELS OCTOBER GLACIER OPENING

The glacier at the French resort simply doesn’t have enough snow. It is yet another sign of the impact of climate change.

GLACIER SKIING – GO WHILE YOU STILL CAN

Alpine glaciers are melting at an alarming rate & summer glacier snowsports may become a thing of the past. PlanetSKI reports from the Alps.

POWDER IN THE PYRENEES

With all the snow in the Alps some have forgotten Europe’s other main ski mountain range. Not us at PlanetSKI and we’re in Andorra. NEW & UPDATED

Skiing in Norway

Sometimes it is judgement, often it is luck and occasionally a combination of the two. This week PlanetSKI has been in Norway, the location of some of the best current snow in Europe.

Lets hear it for the Pyrenees

The resorts in France, Spain and Andorra are having a fabulous start to winter. The headlines have been grabbed by the Alps but there is almost 2m in places and more is falling. PlanetSKI reports.

The ski season starts…

8,000 people were skiing in the Austrian resort of Stubai last weekend in the best October conditions in recent memory. But where are the Brits? PlanetSKI reports from the Austrian Tirol.

Glacier skiing in Austria

Almost half a metre of snow has fallen in the last few days in the glacier resorts and many hundreds of people are out enjoying the wintery conditions. Hard to believe it is the second half of May! PlanetSKI reports from Hintertux.
