Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Summer heatwave vs winter snow?

 Poster: A snowHead

Dos anyone know whether a heatwave in Europe in the summer has a noticeable effect on the next Alpine ski season? And if it does, is it good or bad?

@brokenbetty, a heatwave is usually bad for the glaciers. However they had a record amount of snow cover after last winter which may have protected them

Last year there was a heatwave across the med.
We are supposed to be entering a weather cycle of winter cool down.
So should have a good 20 years of skiing.

No doubt it will be blamed on climate change, now global warming has been debunked.

It is likely to increase sub surface ocean water temperatures which in turn could mean milder more saturated air for Northern Europe and the western alps.

Don’t worry about it, this winter will have plenty of snow and good skiing.
I’m basing that on nothing more than optimism.

Global warming and global drying are killing the glaciers in the European Alps.

In the 1980s and 1990s, there were ~10 skiable glaciers that had enough ice to (reliably) open ~365 days a year.

Now, in 2018, there is really only 1 left (Zermatt, Switzerland).

All the rest are melting away.

This Summer's European heatwave is going to smash the glaciers yet again.

Planet is 4.5bn years old. 2 photos taken 20 years apart is not enough to convince me its man made global warming.
Its a known fact we are about to enter a cooling stage of the Sun magnetic field.

 So if you're just off somewhere snowy come back and post a snow report of your own and we'll all love you very much

yes, and it affects eGzpert's judgement and brain already - a scientifically proven fact

The planet's average temperature has increased +4c in the past 300 million years.
Roughly an extra +1c every 75m years...

The planet's average temperature has increased +3c in the past 15 thousand years.
Roughly an extra +1c every 5k years...

The planet's average temperature has increased +1c in the past 150 years (human population explosion).
Roughly an extra +1c every 150 years...

The planet's average temperature has increased +0.5c in the past 50 years (human population explosion).
Roughly an extra +1c every 100 years...

Natural warming (interglacial period) has been accelerated by manmade warming (lots of people and lots of fumes).

The planet is basically a "room" to live in. You put more people inside a room, it heats up.

The world is warming, drying, and melting.
