Winter is Coming Folks!


The first snow of autumn has fallen in the Alps and over in North America too. Plus there has been further falls down under in Australia as the ski season there draws to a close. NEW

It has been a poor summer for summer skiing on the glacier resorts in the Alps.

That is an understatement.

It has been the worst in recent memory.

Only Hintertux in the Tirol in Austria has been able to stay open to the general public, but rain and high temperatures have damaged its slopes over the past few months.

Finally it has seen some snow.

Here was the scene on Sunday.

And on Saturday:

The capital of the Tirol, Innsbruck, has also shared some images of the autumn snowfall:

So too in St Anton:

Noew og course none of this snow will make much differenc e for the winter ahead as most will melt.

But it is always good to see the first falls as the seasons change.

Here is the scene in Switzerland as summer moves to autumn and the cows leave their alpine pastures:

Dustings fell earlier this month in the French Alps.

Here is Val Thorens from 10th September:

And lets not forget the current scene in Poland.

It is looking good in places over in the Rockies in North America.



As winter approaches in the Northern Hemisphere it is drawing to a close in the Southern Hemisphere.

With some fresh snow in Australia.

Here at PlanetSKI we will be updating this article, so do check back if the snow is getting you thinking of the approaching season.
