    @Morris, looking at the upcoming PA's, the best parts are in the south for the upcoming days. After that stability? or chanses for more storms coming in? our destination is open, from Zurich airport by car. Should we head for high altitude og forest areas? and will south alps still be the area of choice?

    @AndersBj, correct. There is a lot of fresh snow in the Southern Alps. This weekend will be dry and sunny. Warmer air is expected to move in on Sunday.

    Next week will be warmer due to a southwestern flow. Excpect zero=levels to go up and fresh snow as of Tuesday/Wednesday in the Piemonte.

    Aim for North Faces on Sunday till Tuesday and forrest on Wednesday-Thursday. You can skip the resorts that are to low.

    Cheers!

    @Lynsey, You might consider the resorts in the Southern Alps East: http://wepowder.com/playgrounds/region/9

    They had 30-120 cm of freshies since friday. Especially Carinthia and the pre-alps of the Dolomites will het another 20-40 cm of freshies between today and wednesday. From Thursday on it will be sunny and temperatures will go up.

    Cheers!

    "@Morris Will st Moritz/engadin be "south enough"? What about zermatt area? Or is aosta/monterosa the drug of choice? It's all abt drive here too as with @Lyndsey

    Thanks Morris, should have said going for a week, does that change things?

    @AndersBj, Zermatt only got 5-20 cm. Same is with St. Moritz. Aosta valley only picked up 5-20 cm. St. Moritz is about the same. Mt. Rosa will be good, but look for the North faces (which they don't have that much). If conditions are stable you might consider hiring a guide + helicopter and go for the Marinelli couloir on Sunday/Monday.

    As of Wednesday you should probably head to the western Piemonte or the Southern French Alps. Although the exact details might shift the coming days. I will keep you posted!

    @AndersBj, I would suggest Milky Way. Especially Sestriere will be good. Nice treeruns between Monte Motta and Pragelato. Make sure to arrive there this evening and enjoy the powder on Wednesday morning. Forecast update will be live within a few hours.

    Hi Morris,
    I'll do some Catskiing in Popova Shapka (Macedonia) from 18th to 23rd of March. Here is the link to the trip: http://www.goheliski.at/?id=60
    What do you think about the snow or is it too early for a forecast?
    Cheers from Cologne

    Nice powder @sestriere these days, up to 40-50 some places. Fantastic treeruns! Warming up now. Any better place tomorrow? Higher altitude with good snowfall?

    @AndersBj, it looks like the French side will get some decent powder tomorrow. Wind is turning southwest and snowlevels are about to drop towards 1600 meters. So the French side will get more powder. You might have a look at Serre Che, Puy St. Vincent or Vars/Risoul. Nice treeruns overthere.

    And guess who is also roadtrippin' in the same region as you are now? http://instagram.com/p/WjwyLeC6Gw/

    @AndreasPieber, Solden/HochGurgl might get some snow from Saturday to Sunday. Looks like they will pick up 15-30 cm.
