We had a welcome 15cm of snow last week (Wed eve), and a few days of most excellent conditions. However, it's only a short-term fix to the general lack of snow in the French alps. Austria appears to be having the pick of the Euro snow conditions this season. Fortunately, if the forecasters are right, we're about to get more of the white fluffy stuff than we bargained for from mid next week. Powder days ahead? The French met office writes:
High pressure and dry weather over the Savoie region until Tuesday. After that, very very very bad weather with heavy snow and strong winds.
We'll see what that brings.
