I'm following the weather in the alps-it seems very warm at the moment. We go there in 3 weeks time-think it's going to be a bit slushy. Hoping conditions improve..

My son has just gone off skiing in the alps (Chamonix). It seems like there's been lots of snow but it's too warm. places I'd expect to have great conditions are reporting wet snow at resort height, unusual at this time of year.

I skied today! I went up to get a few runs in and ended up teaching an afternoon private. It was glorious! It's supposed to rain tomorrow so I doubt I'll make it out, but snow is in the forecast for Thursday!

Mikiio, emoticon for opening the season!

Vanessa, how cool to be so close to the slopes! Once we went to Fort Collins, Co in January but did not make it to the slopes. I can't believe we were so close to the "famous" ski areas but did not go there.

We skied in Utah (Solitude), and I agree that they have great snow.

It has snowed in the Jura mountains (France & Switzerland).
I went cross-country skiing today for the first time of the year. emoticon

Our downhill resorts won't open before the 7th of December.

I can pretty much go every weekend if I were so inclined. I know that sounds like bragging or being show-offy (not exactly a real word, I know, but it's the only thing I could think of). I'm about 40 miles from the closest resort which I don't go to very often. The ones that I have a pass to are between 60-80 miles away.
I have always wanted to go skiing in Utah - I've heard that their slopes are some of the best.

Vanessa, we don't go to the local ski areas in LA. But we are going to the central/northern ski area 1st week of January right after the New Year's. That means I have 5-1/2 more weeks of getting in better shape.
What about your plans?

I am going skiing over the Thanksgiving holiday. My mountain typically does not allow employees to ski during preseason so there's enough snow for everyone else, but I will be on snow if I have to hike to do it!

Well at least you were able to get out there this weekend. Were you making new tracks or were there a lot of folks out there?

Keystone opened 3 more runs this weekend and it's supposed to snow up there off and on until the middle of the week! emoticon

Northern Utah: I went cross country skiing for the first time this season yesterday. It wasn't a particularly high spot and coverage was thin. I hear there's some backcountry skiing going on in select spots. The Salt Lake resorts starting opening last week.

I totally understand about the prices! As if buying boots and skis (or boards) isn't expensive enough - the lift tickets are crazy!

The mountains are supposed to get more snow today - I certainly hope so!
There are only 4 runs at Keystone open and I like to go there for my first day of skiing. *Sigh... I still have a week I suppose.

I just wish that ski lifts prices wouldn't jump so much every year emoticon I decided to check it besides checking the snow report, and had a sigh.... I guess I have to be less extravagant in my other spendings this holiday season.
Sorry if it's not relevant to the team!

Oooh! It really does get exciting this time of year - watching the weather to see if your favorite mountain got snow.

Does anyone have an app that gives snow conditions? A lot of folks here in this part of the country do but I think it's just as easy to watch the weather forecast!

In the Northeastern US, there was at least one resort open last weekend (Sunday River I believe) and Killington got 14 inches at the peak! They're pushing to open soon.

Could all members let us know about the Snow Situation in their countries?
Here weather forecasts say it will snow over 2,000 meters on the Alps in this week.
I just can't wait, please tell us how it is in your country/place you go skiing!!!
