PA#18: Nordstau-light with potential for more

After a very warm period in the Alps, a strong cooling will now follow. Higher up, the snow cover grows steadily over the next few days. A nice layer of snow will fall until Thursday evening.

PA#17: From summer heat to some fresh snow

After the exceptional warmth of the past few days, a cold front will bring a solid cooling and a fresh layer of snow. It will get about 15 to locally 20 degrees colder and the snowline will thus drop nicely.

Live from PA 16: Powder in Puy Saint Vincent!

We’re experiencing a record season in the Pays des Écrins. There’s a whopping 4 meters of snow at the top of Pendine. Even the entrance to the renowned Col de Bal is directly skiable, with the large rocks hidden beneath a thick layer of snow.

Riding in Japan

Typically, I spend my winters in the Alps, hitting the slopes for some powder, summiting a few peaks, and when it’s warmer, practising tricks in the park. Supported by Penguin Powderwear, I decided to chase the snow to the other side of the world this winter: Japan.

PA#16: Lots of snow for the south-west Alps!

In the coming days, there will be quite a bit of snow again on the southern side, especially in the western part of it. More snow is likely to follow from the weekend onwards. In some regions, accumulations could reach serious levels.

PA#15 for the northwestern side

We can expect some nice snowfall in the Northwest-Alps with a low snowline. Much more snow may follow over the course of next week with a south-westerly flow, but details on this are not yet known.

Snow down to the valleys this weekend?

It was a changeable start to the week with snow mainly in the Northwest Alps. The snowline was quite high on Monday, around 1800-2000 metres in most places, occasionally at increasing intensity temporarily below 1500 metres, but a nice layer of snow fell higher up anyway: 10 to 20 centimetres, locally also 30 centimetres.

Arc'teryx Presents: The Hagens

Deciding to have kids is a big decision. It’s probably one of the most daunting decisions many of us will face in our lifetimes. It’s perhaps even more magnified for those who already have life-fulfilling passions that fuel their sense of self and shape their goals.

Snow for the Swiss Alps - Spring conditions directly afterwards

A nice layer of snow follows over the next 24 hours for the Swiss Alps. It could have been a PowderAlert, but due to the limited amounts in a limited area and the subsequent very rapid warming on Thursday, I chose not to issue a PA.

Private Pelvoux Powder!

As I type this, my jaw hurts from laughing. Since 9:15 this morning, the smile hasn’t left my face. After snowy days, today cleared up nicely. That meant skiing in powder under the sun!
