It's snowing heavily in the Alps since Thursday. First in the northwest, last night in the Hohe Tauern and the next 36 hours the Alpe Adria will be the sweet spot. More about that in the video below. You'll a list of specific regions for next weekend and a first sketch for the beginning of next week below the video.
It has snowed, it is still snowing and there is still snow in the forecast. You'll find more information about the regions where you can ride powder the next 72 hours below. The air will remain unstable this weekend and clouds will dominate. There will be some snow coming down locally (especially in the southeast), but the quantities are decreasing. There is some room for the sun, but that is not guaranteed everywhere.
1. Northwest of the Alps A lot of snow came down already and some more centimeters will fall this weekend. Your best options are the treeruns in the northwest with 10-25, locally 30-40 cm of fresh snow. Think about the following regions:
2. The Hohe Tauern A snow sandwich brought cold smoke blower pow to this region. Expect 30-50 cm, locally 70 cm of fresh snow. Keep in mind that the wind can be strong and this results in wind-drifted snow. The regions where you could go:
3. Alpe Adria Last but not least the Alpe Adria. There's a lot of snow coming down here. Some ski areas will remain closed, like Sella Nevea, which is closed right now. But there are more resorts where you can find great snow:
The sky over the Mediterranean remains unstable and a new storm is on the maps for Monday. The models still have doubts about the sweet spot and a detailed storm path is still difficult to predict. The storm of last week (snow in the Piedmont) and the storm of today show that the devil is in the details. In other words: it will be colder the next few days, the jet stream is not that strong, but with unstable air over the Mediterranean Sea you can definitely expect a new storm which will bring a lot of snow locally. And that means that PowderAlert #14 is on the radar.
