Where is the snow?

OnTheSnow's Weekly Snow Report is updated every Wednesday to give you the best skiing conditions across Europe.

Winter has returned to Austria after half a metre of snow was recorded at the end of last week - conditions are particularly good in Stubai, Pitzal and Soelden. This is the last week of operations for the majority of open ski resorts across the Alps and if you're planning a last-minute getaway, Austria is the place to go.


Around half of resorts have now closed in France but there is still some good skiing to be found in Val Thorens (95-150cm), Les 2 Alpes (0-200cm), Avoriaz (30-110cm), La Plagne (20-190cm) and Val d'Isere/Tignes (35-145cm).

This week marks the end of the season for most, but Val Thorens and Val d'Isere will stay open until May 1, and Tignes until May 8. 

Sunshine is the order of the day and there's no new snow in the forecast.
