Another dump

By meteomorris on 25 February 2015 · 0

Although it is still snowing today in many parts of Austria, it's time to look back. The warm front arrived in the night of Monday and as expected the snow line was therefore high. It took until Tuesday morning (and sometimes even to the Tuesday afternoon) before the cold front arrived in Austria and that was not expected. The snow line was therefore pretty high in Austria, but the cold air arrived on Tuesday so it snowed deeper into the valleys.

The sun already came out In the west, and you could ride some nice powder in France under blue skies. Altogether around 20-40, locally 60 cm of freshies, came down. A lot of snowfall was recorded above 1800 meters.

Wednesday will bring snow showers in Austria and the east of Switzerland. One more intense than the other. But enough snowfall to make it a little deeper. Thursday will be a day with great weather everywhere and it will be great riding in the northern Alps (including the French northern Alps), and PowderAlert #15 will follow right after. Because a new storm is already waiting.


In the night from Friday a new front is coming in from the west and the snow line quickly drops deep into the valleys. It will snow in the French Northern Alps first, but gradually it will also start snowing in the rest of the northern Alps. On Saturday the sun comes out again in the west, while it's still snowing in Austria. More details next couple of days, but it should be quite clear... the next few days you have to be in the northern Alps (including the French Northern Alps).

Stay stoked
