RECORD SNOWFALL IN THE ALPS AND CANADA

  • This year’s ski season has got off to a flying start with record snowfall across the Alps and Canada, in stark contrast to last year when many resorts delayed opening. Many of Inghams’ resorts have received up to 105cm of snow over the last 72 hours with more snow and cold weather forecast over the coming weeks.

    Whistler, Canada, reports the best snow conditions in 10 years. Over a metre has fallen in Les Arcs, France, and Cervinia, Italy, has recorded over 60cms over the last 24 hours.

    Warren Smith, Director of Warren Smith Ski Academy & Professional Free Skiier based in Verbier, Switzerland said:

    “Verbier has had a phenomenal start to the season with more than a metre of fresh snow falling in the last few days. The conditions are excellent, the best I have seen in five years, with powder skiing both on and off the slopes.”

    These early season record snow falls across the Alps and Canada mean that keen skiiers and snowboarders are making the most of the excellent conditions and rushing to book winter deals.

    Hugh Walton, Executive Director, Inghams stated

    “With such excellent early season conditions, daily late sales for departure dates over Christmas and January have doubled. Now is the time to book and make the most of the excellent conditions and the terrific deals we are offering.”
