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 :-)

I guess it's now just 6 weeks to opening. Hard to believe it's so soon given how nice and sunny and clear it is at the moment.

It's a shame it's looking too warm for much of the heavy rain coming over the next few days to fall as snow but then it is still only October.

Yep a real shame, would have been perfect if it would have been in a few weeks time, then maybe it would have been colder for it fall as snow at least at 2000M +

Least the reservoirs should be refilled for snowmaking this seasons Very Happy

We check in to Arabba on January 5. I have my expectations pegged very low. Hoping to be skiing on man made ribbons through green fields as a bare minimum - so cold temps is all that requires. Natural snowfall to transform the area to a winter landscape would be a very welcome bonus.

Based on the last 5 years you are quite likely to have access to the largest number of open runs and lifts anywhere in the Alps at that time of year. Cool

In concert with the snow seen above on the Dolomite peaks, storms and torrential rain caused major damage & disruption in N & C Italy. Venice saw its worst flooding in a decade.

More rain lower down & snow in the high alpine today across the Italian Alps & Po plain, not as heavy as earlier in the week, but 3-4 inches of rain locally in some places sounds like a lot to me.

Rain/snow limit is high though hovering between 2000-2600m in the Dolomites, accompanied by Scirocco winds.

It's not going to be a base for all but the highest ski runs, but should serve to fill those snowmaking reservoirs after the dry summer and autumn.

Was suprised to still see most of the upper Alta Badia plataue between Corvara, San Cassiano and La Villa, still covered in snow. Thought by now it would have melted but then again the suns losing its strength this time of year

I suppose the webcams are situated on the peaks just over 2000m, so would have got some snow and rain.

It depends how the rest of Nov plays out as to whether it sticks around.

Looking milder over the weekend, but more snow at altitude in the forecast early next week.

Link to the press release in September which descibes the various projects this summer eg. Replacement of Roby chair alta badia and improvements to snowmaking etc.

I have to say 30th november opening is looking challenging at the moment. We'll need that final week in Novemer to be cool. Cool

Last 9 days are showing a cool down and are dry. Would be good for snow making so might just scrape a start by the 30th ?

That looks encouraging. Should permit snow making at Kronplatz as early now as Saturday. Some light snowfall possible next week but hopefully not enough to interupt the rather more important business of snow making. Laughing

It’s started. Cool Kronplatz have 12 days to get operational. Next week is now looking a little warmer and there may be some snow around. Perhaps not ideal if that’s rain on the lower slopes but I wouldn’t bet against them having plenty of skiing available by opening day. snowHead

Some snow laid down on Dantercepies area in Selva, according to cams. It also looked like Plan Gralba area was getting some, too.

edit: cooler weather should hold for next week, hopefully enough to cover the important stuff.

The webcams are showing a dusting already and according to Snow Forecast it looks like there might be 20cm or so by tomorrow morning.

I know it's too early for it to mean much come ski time but it's still nice to see.
