Snow away from the Alps

All eyes may be on the Alps as up to 1m of snow falls in places but it has been snowing elsewhere in Europe too. And in North America. NEW

Cars under snow

Poor snow in the Alps gets worse

There are some of the worst Xmas and New Year conditions that we can remember. Huge crowds are now skiing on a very limited number of slopes, but there is a glimmer of hope ahead. NEW

Dreaming of a White Christmas

Our weekly snow report is out and it does not make happy reading for those in the Alps where conditions are very poor. North America is the place to be as it gets pounded by snow. UPDATED

Snow depth claims

With poor snowfall across the Alps there are a few rather odd claims of snow levels from some areas. PlanetSKI reports.

Want to see some pictures of snow?

As the snow in the Alps fails to fall we are fed up looking at pictures of brown slopes. It is not so on the west coast of North America where it does not seem to want to stop snowing. UPDATED

What are conditions really like in the Alps?

Some reports predict a disasterous Xmas with precious little snow, others are saying there is great sking. The truth lies somewhere in the middle.

More snow is needed in Europe

Mixed conditions across the Alps

PlanetSKI has reporters in Corvara in Italy, Verbier in Switzerland and Ruhpolding in Bavaria. Like the snow, they have had mixed fortunes in recent days. NEW

Sunshine across the Alps

As more resorts open this weekend blue sky dominates as a lack of snow causes some concern with Xmas approaching. There is some snow forecast for next week but it is not certain. UPDATED

Can we have some snow please?

Our weekly snow report is out

Warm temperatures dominate the picture with no snow in the foreseeable future in much of Europe. It is a different story in North America as winter bites. UPDATED

Warm weather in the Alps

We are going to have to rely on the snow cannons as there is no snow in the forecast. The trouble is they can only be used when it is cold enough. NEW
