The ski season is now in full swing with plenty of snowy slopes in the Alps and Switzerland, Austria and the Italian Dolomites. At least 2 metres of snow is expected across the Alps in the next week, however, would still advise for you to look at resorts above 2000m for assured snow. Ski resorts at 1000m have snow but a thaw could affect the quality.
