Austria - 50cm of midsummer snow

Heavy snow - and more to follow

20 Jun 10 - "Surely some mistake?" That's what we thought when we saw the Welove2ski snow forecast on Friday, June 18. It was predicting up to 50cm of fresh snow in parts of Austria and Switzerland for today, June 20. But that's exactly what they got.
 

The Plauns campsite near St Moritz in Switzerland, June 20. What a great summer camping experience. Anyone for a barbecue?


"Heavy snow - and there's more to follow. At one glacier, the Stubai, south of Innsbruck, they're reporting 20cm of snow on the valley floor and 50cm of powder higher up!

"Not just Austria, some of the heaviest falls have been in the high and remote Engadin Valley in south-eastern Switzerland, home to St Moritz. There's also been snow at altitude in Italy - at Madonna di Campiglio. There's even been a 5cm dusting on the glacier above Tignes in France - which opened for summer skiing on Saturday.
